On your full-day tour from Bucharest to Northern Bulgaria you will drive two hours from Bucharest to cross the border to Bulgaria over Danube river, the second largest river in Europe and then stop at Ivanovo to visit Ivanovo Churches (UNESCO heritage since 1979). Located in the Valley of the Rusenski Lom River, the rock-hewn churches are famous for their impressive XIII-XIVth century frescos.
Your second stop will be in Veliko Tarnovo, one of the most beautiful cities in Bulgaria, located on the banks of Yantra River. Also known as the City of Tsars, Veliko boasts an impressive fortress with the ruins of the former Tsarevets Palace and the patriarchal church, nowdays with modern and intriguing paintings.
The medieval atmosphere is well kept in the city thanks to the old architecture and the narrow streets where you can admire local craftsmen and their work. During your time in Veliko Tarnovo your tour guide will take you to a local restaurant to enjoy the tasty Bulgarian food paired with one of their fine wines.
The Village of Arbanassi will be your final stop, before returing to Bucharest. Arbanassi is a quiet and picturesque village which even today keeps the medieval touch through the old architecture.
