Feel the spirit of the old capitals of Bulgaria
Since its establishment in 681 Bulgaria had different capitals. We suggest you the opportunity to visit all of them - Pliska, Preslav, Veliko Tarnovo and today’s capital Sofia. These capitals have been the face of the country since its creation. They witnessed both times of greatness and periods of obscurity during the different historical periods. Rich in archaeological, historical and cultural monuments, the old capitals are a bridge between Bulgaria and the European cultural heritage.
Pliska is the first capital of their new Bulgarian state, established in 681.Remains of its most impressive buildings have survived until present. Pliska is now a national archeological reserve.
Veliki Preslav became a capital of Bulgaria during the period of Tsar Simeon in 893. 28 years were needed to build-up the second Bulgarian capital, so that it could correspond to the prosperity of the Bulgarian state and the conversion to Christianity.
Veliko Tarnovo was the capital of the Second Bulgarian Kingdom (1185 - 1393). Here you can still see Tsarevets Hill - the place of the patriarchal church and royal palaces, the medieval fortress, as well as architecture from the Bulgarian National Revival period.
