Roughly opposite the Hotel Bolyarski, ul Rakovski veers upwards from the main road, ul Stambolov. On and behind it is the Samovodska Charshiya Complex, the town's historic centre of craftsmanship; blacksmiths, potters and gunsmiths, among other artisans, still practice their trades here. The numerous bookshops and purveyors of antiques, jewellery and art are also housed in appealing Bulgarian National Revival houses.

It's a great place for shopping, or just a stroll, as is the equally appealing old residential quarter of Varosha just above it.At the beginning of ul Rakovski, a prominent map signposts the name and location of each shop in the charshiya, in both Bulgarian and English.
