Cross the border into Bulgaria today as we travel to the fascinating town of Veliko Tarnovo. Settled continuously since 4500BC, Veliko Tarnovo is one of the most ancient and historic places you will ever visit - no wonder it was capital of the Kingdom of Bulgaria in medieval times. The town still retains a medieval feel, with buildings huddled above an S-shaped gorge in the river Yantra. it is a fantastic place to explore, visit the museums, and sample your first Bulgarian food, which is lighter than Romanian and has some similarities to Greek and Turkish cuisine. The Tsarevets fortress just 1km outside central Veliko Tarnovo is a must-see. This huge complex has been an important stronghold for thousands of years, and you can wander at will around the remains of homes, churches and watch towers, dating from the fifth to the twelfth century. On Day 20 we enjoy a hike uphill to Arbanasi (5km, approx 90 minutes). This hilltop village was the residence of choice for the wealthy Roman elite and is still a country haven for the high-flyers of modern Bulgaria.
