One Day Tour to BulgariaBucharest – Ivanovo – Veliko Tarnovo – Arbanassi – Bucharest

The tour will start in the morning with a pickup from your hotel.

After one hour of driving, you will cross the border into Bulgaria over the Danube River – the second largest river in Europe. 

The first stop is at Ivanovo to visit the Rock-Hewn Churches (UNESCO heritage since 1979). Located in the Rusenski Lom River Valley, the rock-hewn churches are very famous thanks to their impressive XIII-XIVth century frescoes.

The second stop will be in Veliko Tarnovo, one of the most beautiful cities in Bulgaria, on the Yantra River banks. Also known as the City of Tsars, Veliko boasts an impressive fortress with the ruins of the former Tsarevets Palace and the patriarchal church, nowadays 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 artisans and their work.

The Village of Arbanassi is the next place you will visit, not far from the city. Arbanassi is a quiet and picturesque village that keeps the medieval touch through the old architecture.

Our journey ends in the evening after returning to Bucharest.
