Veliko Tarnovo

I’m so happy with this hostel. The common areas are conducive to mingling and conversation. Delighted that breakfast and dinner are included. And it’s just freaking cute.

Over breakfast a group of us decided to check out the main attraction that day, the Tsarevets.

The spiders here are aggressive. They kept dropping from the ceiling onto us, we put up quite the fight but didn’t stay in that room for very long unfortunately.

At the top was the Patriarchal Cathedral, the seat of the ruling Bulgarian patriarch during the second empire, around the 11th and 12th centuries.

Walking up to it, you are prepared for ancient artifacts and an old orthodox church. Such a surprise!!

The modern murals in such an old church were kind of a mind fuck. So awesome.

Then lunch and a walk through town.
