"Arbanasi" Arbanasi by JessieLang

Arbanasi Travel Guide: 41 reviews and 76 photos

Arbanassi was founded in the 1500s. The first settlers were Greek, but the town’s name is Albanian. The Ottoman sultan gave the town to his vizier, Rustem Pasha, and exempted it from taxes. It was rich then, but eventually fell on hard times. It is now a small residential community outside Veliko Turnovo.
