    Stop At: Veliko Tarnovo, Veliko Tarnovo, Veliko Tarnovo Province

    Your private day trip from Bucharest will begin in the morning when your tour guide will pick you up from your hotel in Bucharest, or from any other requested location inside the city.

    You will head south towards Bulgaria, crossing the Danube River, the second largest river in Europe. At approximately 100 km from the Romanian border, you will find the charismatic city of Veliko Tarnovo, a UNESCO heritage site with a tremendous cultural and historic value.

    Once you step through the gates of the medieval town, you will feel like you traveled back in time. You will find palaces, a fortress, houses with unique architectural style, museums, monasteries - all part of the region's history.

    Walking on the cobbled streets, the guide will tell you more about the history of the town which used to be the Capital of the Second Bulgarian Empire.

    Duration: 1 hour

    Stop At: Tsarevets, Tsar Asen Square, Veliko Tarnovo 5000 Bulgaria

    Your Bulgaria day trip will continue with the Tsarevets Fortress, surrounded by thick walls, up on the hill. The market consists of two streets bordered by shops, craftsmen's workshops, and inns. You can buy souvenirs from this center which recreates the atmosphere of the first decades of the 20th century.

    Duration: 1 hour
