Arbanasi Village

Veliko Tarnovo, Bulgaria


Arbanasi, located 4 km northeast of Veliko Tarnovo, is among the most visited architectural reserves in this part of the country. The houses with their fortress-like stone walls and barred windows and their fabulous interior decorations are the reason why so many people are attracted to this village. Thanks to its churches and monasteries, the place has become an important stop in the spiritual journey of all those who wish to discover the soul of Bulgaria. The people who love food won’t be disappointed either. Arbanasi boasts some of the best traditional taverns on the territory of the country where strange words like kebabche, kyufte, Shopska salad and lyutenitsa find real meaning and transform into delicious national dishes that everyone should try. Oh, important notice: if you happen to be on a diet or you are a vegetarian, steer clear of the kebabche and kyufte! They are 100% meat!
