My Trip to Lovech
One of my best friends is originally from Lovech and she always invites me to visit her hometown. Last week I finally did this short trip. Lovech is a small and quiet city in north-central Bulgaria, so two days was enough to see everything I needed to. To be honest, the new part of the town didn’t impress me much. In contrast, the old part of Lovech has a rich cultural heritage and in my opinion, it’s is really a must-see!Lovech is one of the oldest towns in Bulgaria and it is best known for its medieval fortress. For more details go to bulgariancastles.com.The monument of Vasil Levski. He was a Bulgarian revolutionary and a national hero of Bulgaria.The Ethnographic museum is a must-see in Lovech!
“Between 1872 and 1874, the Bulgarian master-builder Nikola Fichev, known also as Kolyu Ficheto, built the famous Covered Bridge over the river Osam, the only one of its kind in the Balkans. The bridge was burned out in 1925, but rebuilt in 1931. Now it connects the new and the old part of the town and it’s full of cafes, small restaurants and many souvenir shops.” via wikipedia.orgIf you like this post then you might also like one of these:
