As I watch this incredible town I can’t stop thinking it must be a dream, an apparition, and an optical illusion

7 000-year-old evidences of human activity have been found by archaeologists on the territory of the present-day town of Veliko Tarnovo.

For more than eight centuries the town has been of fundamental importance for Bulgarian history. In the Middle Ages, Europeans called it the "Third Rome, Second Constantinople". During the Revival period it was renowned as: the „Mother of all Bulgarian cities”.

Being a synthesis of a thousand-year history, our town is also symbol of continuity of the statehood, spirit and culture of our nation and at the same time – an emblem of the latest tendencies in art, science, culture, education and social projects.
