  St. Dmitar Church in Veliko Turnovo
by terrycowan

St. Dmitar is Turnovo's oldest, and one of its most beautiful, churches. Its consecration in 1185 launched the successful war for Bulgarian independence from Constantinople. The church and grounds were closed when we stopped, so we only were able to view the outside.

Directions: Asenova District
