The focal point of the day-tour is a UNESCO World Heritage Site with unique 14th century frescoes revealing the exceptional artistry and the remarkable artistic sensitivity of the Bulgarian medieval art. The murals are accommodated by the chapels and cells of the 12th century rock-hewn churches and monasteries.
The duration of the tour is 6 hours and departs from Poborcheski square, Veliko Tarnovo. Your guide will lead you to visit at first the biggest monastery in Veiko Tarnovo region - the Transfiguration Monastery, where you can talk to the abbot. Roman city Nicopolis ad Istrum had an exceptional 3 km long aqueduct. Just imagine the scale of work needed from the ancient people to build the city. Other sights during the trip include the Eagle's Stony Heights Cave, Cherven - one of the best preserved medieval fortresses in Bulgaria and of course the Rock-Hewn Churches of Ivanovo and the Rock-Hewn Monastery of Besarbovo. You'll be travelling with a minivan and there'd be total flexibility for photo brakes and food breaks. There is always a tavern or a restaurant on the way at where you can taste the local wines. If you are a wine lover that would be a must, because the region is known for its wine-grape varieties. After the trip is finished, you'll be transferred to your hotel or at a desired location.
