Preparations for the traditional Christmas bazaar in Veliko Tarnovo have started. The bazaar will be held from 29th November till 31st December in Marno Pole Park just like any year. On the main alley, there will be 25 wooden houses offering a variety of Christmas themed treats and gifts.
Another 20 streets in the historical part of Veliko Tarnovo will be renovated, which means that after that the infrastructure of the Varusha neighbourhood will be entirely upgraded. Gasification and new transport schemes are to be expected as well.
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.
