Destination in brief

Population (in 2020): 68,400

The settlement was built on several hills surrounded by the Yantra River. The river not only crosses the city but also has eight significant meanders in the city center. Several bends are nearly 180 degrees, so there is a place where we can see the river in both directions, while it bypasses an entire quarter of the city.

History

In the 12th-14th century, Veliko Tarnovo was the capital of the Second Bulgarian Empire.

In 1908, after the independence, the Constitutional Assembly met here, and Veliko Tarnovo missed to become the capital just by one vote in favor of Sofia.
