Veliko Tarnovo

Boris Denev State Art Gallery

  Assenevtsi Park      (+359) 62 638 941     more than a year ago
A visit to this art gallery allows you to combine a brief overview of Bulgarian art over the past century and a half with a delightful walk across the river to enjoy the incomparable view of the houses of Veliko Turnovo stacked up one atop the other on the opposite hill.

Situated next to the impressive Assens' monument, the gallery occupies a lovely building from the early 20th century. Inside, the collection is fairly small, which makes it all the more manageable for those without much of a clue about Bulgarian art. There is an icon room, several corridors with etchings and the main collection features views of Veliko Turnovo or historical events that took place here by various 20th century artists. A wonderful use of colour is apparent, particularly in the renditions of the houses on the hill, which you can see from here simply by looking out of the window.


OpenĀ 10:00-18:00. Closed Mon.
