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.
After two years of delay due to the pandemic, the traditional for Veliko Tarnovo “Trabant Fest” will take place. The date is March 19, and the event, which gathers dozens of friends of the social vehicle, is included in the events celebrating the holiday of Veliko Tarnovo. This will be its eleventh edition.
Usually the Trabant Festival in the old capital opens the calendar for the year of such events. The program is still being finalized, but three of the main points are clear.
Introduction of an electronic system for ticket sales and control of access to museum sites should start working this year. The innovation is a part of the business plan of the municipal tourist association “Tsarevgrad Tarnov”. The actual development and synchronization with the electronic system of the Regional History Museum is forthcoming. The idea is to make it as easy as possible for tourists, thus preventing queues in front of the larger museums.
Initially, three devices will be installed to access the most visited sites. Turnstiles will be installed at the entrance of Tsarevets , the church “St. 40 Martyrs ” and the Multimedia Visitor Center.
The kinetic art installation “Merger – Confluence” by the popular visual artist Hristo Gelov will transform Veliko Tarnovo this spring. The famous artist, who turned the crosswalks in Spain into colorful rugs and decorated a bridge in Sweden as a “Lego” toy, will transform some of the open spaces in his hometown for the first time.
A fun, unusual for the region and very addictive adventure on the hills of Veliko Tarnovo and Arbanasi is offered by Damyan Stefanov. The young man organises off-road safaris on different routes. But rest assured that all of them take tourists to breathtaking views of the old Bulgarian capital and Arbanasi.
