Things to do
Tsarevets and Trapezitsa are included in the competition for favourite cultural and historical destinations “Wonders of the Decade”. The ranking started on the eve of the 10th anniversary of the largest national campaign for the preservation of cultural heritage and the promotion of historical tourism – Wonders of Bulgaria. It presents 20 sites that have become favourite destinations of tourists. After the vote, the winners in the Top 10 will be determined.
The team of the Konstantin Kisimov Music and Drama Theatre in Veliko Tarnovo will present masterpieces of world opera and operetta classics. The traditional Christmas gala concert will be on December 22nd at 7 pm in the large hall of the theatre. The performance will be held with up to 30% of the total capacity of the hall, observance of physical distance and all other anti-epidemic measures issued by the Ministry of Health.
The Christmas bazaar in Veliko Tarnovo opened on Friday, November 27th, but there was no official opening due to the current situation. The initial idea this year was for the bazaar to have two locations – Marno Pole Park and the Samovodska Charshia, but due to the dissatisfaction of the residents of the Varusha neighbourhood, it was decided to be in Marno Pole Park only. The bazaar will remain until the end of December and will be open every day from 10:00 to 20:00.
