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.
Ever wanted to run away and join the circus or go to a faraway kingdom as a kid? Still get that urge now that you’re an adult? When you’re just feeling so overwhelmed by work, city life and adult responsibilities in general that you just want to go to a deserted island far away from everyone. Well, it turns out going off-grid is not that impossible after all. Maybe not on a private deserted island but in your very own self-sufficient house.
