One of the most beautiful and ancient houses in Veliko Tarnovo is being restored. The Bey House, which was built in 1864, is one of the emblems of Veliko Tarnovo. It was where the last bey of the city lived before Bulgaria got freed from Ottoman rule. “Bey” is a Turkish title for chieftain, traditionally applied to the leaders or rulers of various sized areas in the Ottoman Empire.
The first stage of the renovation of the oldest hotel in Veliko Tarnovo – “Tsar Boris” has started. Currently, the building is being cleared of debris, the structures are being strengthened and secured before the actual construction begins. Funding is also provided for the complete restoration and commissioning of the hotel, and the repairs are made to all requirements and rules for cultural monuments. It took several years for Edmund Beck to buy the iconic hotel that had been left to its own accord and to begin its renovation.
The vote is officially over. All of the villages in the Veliko Tarnovo area that didn’t choose their mayor on the first try have now chosen. See the results below.
According to “Borba” newspaper, a high-speed road, and not a highway will connect Veliko Tarnovo to Ruse and it will pass just 3 km west from the old capital. This was made clear by the investment project, which has already been submitted to Veliko Tarnovo Municipality. The documentation shows the project route on the territory of the municipality. However, the difference in status is not significant for the comfort of travellers.
