  1. I love Veliko Turnovo. The combination of Tzarevetz’ sprawling remains of medieval castle and fortifications, the 19th century Museum of the Bulgarian Revival and Constituent Assembly, a quirky and exuberantly bohemian café like the Malkia Inter, the old town – it’s worth spending more than a day if you can. Thanks for sharing the lovely photos.
