1 day
Sofia – Veliko Tarnovo – Arbanasi – Dryanovski Monastery – Tryavna

Departure at 7:30 A.M. from “Aleksandar Nevski” Square (behind the Cathedral, on “Oborishte” St), Sofia City. We strongly recommend You make a preliminary reservation.
Our first stop will be in Veliko Tarnovo -  the capital of the Second Bulgarian Kingdom, regally situated on four hills. The houses are scattered at the foot of the hills with their gables crowning the steep streets. Here are preserved relics from the ancient fortress, built on the banks of the Yantra river. Medieval churches, saved until today, would tell stories from the Bulgarian history. The houses in Arbanasi resemble strongholds from the outside but the wonders of the interior are a hidden delight. Here is also located the ex-residency of the Communist leader Todor Zhivkov.
The Dryanovski Monastery "Sv Arhangel Mihail" (St Archangel Michael) was built during the reign of King Kaloyan in 12th century. The monastery's history is connected with the fights and the struggle for Bulgarian independence from Ottoman domination, proving evidences for which are the tracks of Ottoman's shrapnels on the monastery's walls. There is a monument-ossuary in the courtyard of the monastery, dedicated to the Priest Hariton's band of revolutionaries who had lost their lives in the fights.
A three-star-hotel accommodation in Tryavna.

  Tryavna – Bojentsi – Gabrovo – Etara – Sofia

The town of Tryavna was founded in the 12th century but its true flourishing was in 19th century during the Revival period. The town has preserved many houses with original architecture, carving workshops and little stores. Here is the museum-house of Pencho Slaveykov – a noted Bulgarian poet. Other historical and cultural sights include the Daskalova House and the Raykova House, as well as the African and Asian Art Museum. We can not miss to mention one of the symbols of the town – the famous Clock Tower dating from 1814.
The Bojentsi architectural-historical reserve is a picturesque nook in Bulgaria, which has preserved the memories from the past. The traditional houses, the scattered souvenir shops, the popular taverns and the original shekerdjiynitsa shops (candy shops) will shift You back in the Revival period era.  
The town of Gabrovo is a district town best-known as “the town of the humor and satire”. Gabrovo was an important center during the Revival period and here was founded the first secular school. The favourite attraction of the visitors of the town is the monument of the founder of Gabrovo Racho Kovacha, which is built in the middle of the river – another example of the frugality of the citizens of the town.
The Etar architectural-ethnographic complex is unique as it is the only open-air museum in Bulgaria. It illustrates the Bulgarian customs, culture and most of all the craftsmanship. Every visitor can witness the distinctive talent of the Revival period builders and their astonishing architecture-style.
You will be transported back to “Aleksandar Nevski” Square, Sofia at night.
