Itinerary
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Hisarya Fortress, Lovech Bulgaria

The tour starts at 8.30am with a pick up from your hotel in Sofia, followed by two and a half hours journey. Situated on the both sides of Osam river, during the Ottoman period the town was known with the name “Altin Lovech” meaning the Golden Lovech. Upon arrival we will park our car very close to the old quarter, called Varosha.
Our first site for the day will be the Hissar fortress, build on top of one of the many plateaus, created by the river flowing. Here we will speak about the history of this important settlement, its influence during the Second Bulgarian empire and about the personality of Ivan Alexander, who prior of becoming an emperor of the Bulgarian country in 14th century, had ruled the city of Lovech.

Duration: 4 hours

Stop At: Lovech, Lovech, Lovech Province

Our second stop for the day will be the museum of Vasil Levski. Considered and named “The Apostle of Freedom” by his contemporaries, without a doubt the personality of this revolutionary hero has a huge impact in the liberation of the Bulgarians from the Ottoman rule. One of the most important committees, established by him was in the town of Lovech, where Levski used to hide from the Ottomans and to prepare the nation for the Uprising.

Our last stop before lunch will be the Ethnographic museum. Situated in two small Revival houses from 19th century, it represents the life of the citizens of Lovech during the last century before the liberation. You will see authentic furniture and hear stories from these lovely times, when the town was considered to be one of the most important Bulgarian settlements.

At 1.00pm we will head towards one lovely authentic Bulgarian restaurant for a nice lunch (at own expense), before having a free time in the town center for some souvenirs shopping from the old covered bridge above Osam river.

Duration: 2 hours

Stop At: Devetashka Cave, Devetaki 5500 Bulgaria

At 3.00pm we will depart towards Devetaki cave. After half an hour journey we will stop in front of the huge entrance of one of the most spectacular caves in the country. Here many artefacts from the neolithic period were discovered, prooving the ancient history of these lands. Depending which time of the year you will visit the cave, you will be able to see one of the two galleries after the main entrance.

At 4.30pm we will depart back to Sofia and arrive at your hotel somewhere at 7.00pm.
