Bucharest – Ivanovo – Veliko Tarnovo – Village of Arbanassi – Bucharest
 

The tour will start in the morning with pick up from your hotel.

You will cross the border into Bulgaria over Danube River, the second largest river in Europe, and then stop at Ivanovo to visit Ivanovo Churches (UNESCO heritage since 1979).

Being located in the Valley of the Rusenski Lom River, the rock-hewn churches are very famous thanks to their impressive XIII-XIVth century frescoes.
 

The second stop will be in Veliko Tarnovo, one of the most beautiful cities in Bulgaria, located on the banks of Yantra River. Also known as the City of Tsars, Veliko boasts an impressive fortress with the ruins of the former Tsarevets Palace and the patriarchal church, nowadays with modern and intriguing paintings. The medieval atmosphere is well kept in the city thanks to the old architecture and the narrow streets where you can admire local craftsmen and their work.
 

The Village of Arbanassi is the next place you will visit, being located very close to the city. Arbanassi is a quiet and picturesque village which even today keeps the medieval touch through the old architecture.

The tour ends after returning to Bucharest.
