Veliko Tarnovo and Arbanasi are lovely old cities, it is a little far from Sofia, but it is well worth the trip. My guide was fantastic, a man with lot of knowledge, and he was very keen and showed that there he really loved his job.

Le site est passionnant pour quiconque s'intéresse à l'archéologie et/ou à l'histoire. Arbanassi est petit, propose une rénovation du village intéressante. L'église est très originale mais il est regrettable que sa petite taille ne soit pas mieux gérée dans l'accès donné aux groupes : les guides de groupes nombreux ayant tendance à croire un peu trop facilement avoir une quelconque priorité sur des visiteurs en private tour
