Samovodska charshiya is a picturesque street in Veliko Tarnovo with Revival architecture
It was created in the middle of the 19th century. Farmers sell their produce on the new street. These are mostly farmers from the surrounding villages – Samovodene, Dichin and others. Craft shops, workshops and inns have sprung up over the years. The inn of Hadji Nikoli still stands on the street today.
