If you ever find yourself bored on a weekend with no particular plans or you have just moved to Veliko Tarnovo area, then you should definitely try geocaching.
Geocaching is a game, a treasure hunt of sorts, where participants use a GPS or other navigational techniques to hide and find different sized containers called geocaches or simply caches practically everywhere.
A typical geocache is a small waterproof container containing a logbook (logbook) and “treasure” – usually toys or any small items of little monetary value. There are hidden geocaches in over 100 countries around the world and all seven continents, including Antarctica.
We have recently joined the geocahing community only to find out that the game is actually popular among outdoors-y Bulgarians and Tarnovians, too.
There are some interesting georoutes and caches in Veliko Tarnovo and the area – e.g. On the Streets of Tarnovo, Walking with the Bolyars, Rulers of Mediaval Bulgaria and Tsarevets Cache – that will help you learn more about the town and its history and walk you through its most scenic parts, while you’re looking for your geocache.
So next time you need a small adventure or want to spice up your walk, try geocaching. And don’t forget to TFTC!
