Really a paradise!

You can't imagine-the time stopped there hundreds of years ago. This was my first thought when I first visited this place. Narrow and paved streets, old houses and museums, houses of interesting and famous people from the past. You can walk there without needing a car never in your life. People are very good and polite, they'll always help you to find the right destination and answer all your questions. This is a town of a history-each building you see is connected with the past. There are 140 cultural monuments, museums, expositions.
It is so quiet and calm place with such nice people! The small hotels give you opportunity to feel them like your home and wish to stay there to the end of your life.

The Crafts Street

When I said the time stopped there, I was not joking with you. People there have different crafts and they work it for years. Maybe their grandparents did the same and earned money the same way they do it now. The street of the crafts proves it-you can see different goods and things, souvenirs, wooden things and sweets.
Museums and historical houses are very beautiful and interesting, you can learn some facts from the history.

Quiet and clear place

I was informed that the town is rich-this is not common for most of Bulgarian towns and cities because each town has its' unsolved problems. It seems that the municipality earns enough money from tourists and keeps the town clean and beautiful. The old houses are restored and streets are clean.
Tryavna is one of the one hundred tourist destinations of Bulgaria. It is famous with the Renaissance architecture and the Tryavna icon-painting school. It is also famous with the clock tower, built in 1814.
You can always find a cheap and nice hotel there. The food is very good and you can taste some traditional meals.
