Coming Soon, infomation and pictures from my trip to the ancient village of Arbanassi.

The original settlement of Arbanassi is situated four kilometers from the town of Veliko Turnovo, The Medieval Bulgarian capital on a high plateau, having a splendid view over the castles of Trapezitsa and Tzarevets. Arbanassi boasts impressive houses and churches with rich interior decoration, wood-carving, and mural paintings created in XVI - XVII century.

Arbanassi is a picturesque open-air museum of cultural heritage, which includes 80 houses; the most impressive of them are the Konstanzalieva, Hadji-ilieva, Hadji-kostova, Chamurova, Kandilarova and Lecheva, as well as 5 churches "Rozhdestvo Hristovo" (Nativity) "St. George", "St. Dimitar", "St. Atanas", "Archangels St.Mihail and St. Gavrail".
