Trivago, the largest travel search engine, put Veliko Tarnovo in the prestigious third place among the Best Value Destinations in the world. The ranking criterion is the most affordable tourist destination according to quality/price relation and quality of services. The Old Bulgarian capital is the only place in Bulgaria to make it in the top 100 ranking. Veliko Tarnovo is preceded only by the Chinese town of Fenghuang and Mostar in Bosnia-Herzegovina. The platform compares hotels prices, prices of services they provide and quality based on customers reviews.
The ranking itself is based on an algorithm encompassing the Hotel Price Index of Trivago and the hotel ratings on the website. The data show the best combined results for an average hotel price for a night in a standard double room and the average users’ rating for all available hotels in a destination
This is the second time Veliko Tarnovo receives such honours by Trivago – last year the hoteliers in the old Bulgarian capital were ranked first for hospitality.
