Veliko Turnovo (Велико Търново)

Veliko Turnovo this, Veliko Turnovo that. It seems like all I ever hear about these days is Veliko Turnovo. All the books, websites, blogs and ancient Bulgarian diaries I discovered buried in my back yard say the same thing - this former capital of the glittering Bulgarian empire is THE place for a weekend away from Sofia. Click on the links below to see a video of the city's famous (yes, famous... just because you've never heard of it doesn't mean it isn't famous) sound and light show, and a video story of the city from the tourist board.

I think the word about the Sound and light show should be spread more aggressively, so that more tousrists come to visit Veliko Tarnovo and watch the show. And, yeah, you're right.. there are a lot of people, who haven't even heard neither of the Bulgarian Empire, nor of its capital.
