Surrounding Area

Veliko Turnovo enjoys a beautiful setting right in the centre of Bulgaria, surrounded by some of the most picturesque landscape in Bulgaria. It's no wonder that the Veliko Turnovo region has proven immensely popular with expats, particularly Brits, who have bought houses and moved to live here permanently.

Close by are the towns of Troyan, with its impressive monastery, Tryavna with its 140 cultural monuments in the 19th century National Revival style, the museum town of Bozhentsi nestled in the folds of the surrounding hills, and many lovely monasteries in peaceful locations, all worth visiting.
