Attractive installations will decorate Veliko Tarnovo with the onset of spring. The sculptures depict beautiful dandelions sculpted from chrome-nickel. Their author is the sculptor Denislav Sirakov.
The material is extremely strong, has a mirror effect and does not intrude. Recreating the structure of the dandelion, the impression will be of ethereality and transparency. Tender plants will rise to a height of 5-6 meters. Each dandelion will consist of 1300 parts, with each element first cut and then welded. The beauty and elegance of dandelions will be complemented by artistic lighting with changing colors.
The 56-year-old traveler Forest Mallard has started shooting 19 videos that will promote Veliko Tarnovo around the world. The first five are already available and are dedicated to the Stambolov Bridge, the House with the monkey, the Monument “Assenevtsi”, Mother Bulgaria War Memorial and the Monument of Vasil Levski.
Forest Mallard will stay in Veliko Tarnovo for a month and will be immersed in the history of the city. Videos about a number of other historical landmarks in the old capital are to be shot. Tsarevets, the monument “Velchova Zavera”, the performance “Sound and Light”, the Archaeological Museum, the Patriarchate, the Sarafkin House and many others will be presented.
Forest first came to Veliko Tarnovo in 2016 and immediately fell in love with the city. The landscape, the architecture, the monuments, the medieval ruins and the vast history were unexpected and fascinating. It seems that the whole tourist marketing for Bulgaria directed him to Plovdiv and Sofia, but as a person who loves history, Forest was struck by the fortresses of Veliko Tarnovo and Kardzhali and the natural wonders of Belogradchik.
The team of the Konstantin Kisimov Music and Drama Theatre in Veliko Tarnovo is organizing a special Christmas gala concert, called “Snow Flowers”, which will include masterpieces of world opera and operetta classics. The traditional Christmas gala concert will be held on December 21st at 7 pm in the large hall of the theatre.
An architectural landmark of more than four centuries hides under the ground, overgrown with bushes, in Veliko Tarnovo. These are the old Turkish baths, called hammams, built during the Turkish occupation, which are located by the Yantra River, at the foot of the Humanities High School. The idea to clear the spaces belongs to the enthusiasts from the club “TAM”, who are developing the project “Open City”.
They recently posted pictures of the interior of one of the bathrooms. Few devotees had the opportunity to get acquainted with its authentic beauty. Beautiful arches, lavish oriental ornaments, traces of mosaics and murals are still well preserved in the space, which is hidden from the eyes of passers.
A special space for shooting with a traditional Bulgarian bow is available to visitors of the Tsarevets fortress as the newest tourist attraction in the old capital. The idea came from Angalot Enminas from Tarnovo, who organises various games and tournaments and is the creator of the room of mysteries – Logiscape. The medieval shooting range is located near the palace and it is a part of a joint initiative with the Archaeological Museum to create many attractions on the hill.
The creator’s idea is for people to get inspired and entertained. He wants to give the visitors an opportunity to feel part of the atmosphere of the Second Bulgarian Kingdom, without claiming absolute historical authenticity.
