It's a bridge that is covered

Not bad, but nothing that interesting to see. A bridge with a roof and a bunch of souvenir shops. Give it a go

You get a beautiful view of the old Baroque houses the river and the fortress. Have a coffee at the coffee shop with white jam. There are many little souvenir shops.

Probably one of the most interesting architectural piece of art built in those years in Bulgaria. 👍

Although the bridge looks pretty in photographs it is really just a covered souvenir shopping arcade. Nice to wander through but not really a tourist attraction.

People used to see and know the covered bridge in Venice as the one and only, well- not. This one is also covered and it is lovely. Inside there are few small shops some of them offering hand-made crafts. It is great and i appreciate these guys work they are so talented.

It is nice place with shops along the path. You can buy souvenirs and other objects made in a traditional way. There is also a tourist information center where you can find out more about the places to visit in Lovech.

Lovely history, with tourist information on the city and the history. The small shops on the bridge range from traditional leather works to pancakes and hand made models and picture framing. All people were very friendly and the bridge itself is fascinating.

Outside is rustic and interesting. Rather long. Main info. is the time it was built; apx. the early 1900s. many shops inside but most all open in August. there was a leather craftsman making a woman's purse.
