Archery, crossbow and spear throwing will be the new attractions for tourists visiting Tsarevets in Veliko Tarnovo. Now, tourists from all over the country and the world will be able to test their skills with medieval weapons starting 19 July, which coincides with the start of the “Stage of the Ages” Summer Opera Festival.
Target shooting will be located in the palace of Tsarevets towards Skull Rock. Weapons – bows, short spears and crossbows are replicas of the original weaponry from the Bulgarian Middle Ages. If you hit the target a few times you will receive a special certificate with wax seal. The price of the attraction will be 5 lev and it will be available until October from 8am to 7pm.
Next year shooting events will be even more interesting, informs the local TIC. Visitors will be able to dress up in costumes and use a 3D background for photos. Shooting tournaments are also planned.
