“Great area for shopping ...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2013

A lovely area to wonder around and browse in all the little shops. Prices compared to the rest of Bulgaria seemed pretty good.

“Nice area to wander down”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 23, 2013

This was the second time we have been to this complex, it was very nice to walk through, although it did feel a bit touristy, with touristy prices! Nice area to sit and have a drink as well

“Great walk in history!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2013

This is a great opportunity to learn how people worked and lived back in the old days. You walk from shop to shop and see on the spot how the goods were made. You can buy and support local business. Very interesting walk in history, I would highly recomend to visit if you are planing to go to Veliko Turnovo!

“Crafts typical for Tarnovo”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2013

My personal favourite is the pottery store where one can buy contemporaty copies of the famous Tarnovo sgrafitto ceramics - the type of ceramics used only by the nobility in the old days during the old Bulgarian kingdoms. Notable colours - blue, green and yellow, types - cups and plates. Plates have an option for hanging on the wall. :-)
You can also check the jewellery shops with reasonable prices. I bought for myself earrings and a medallion, inspired by archeological findings of jewellery of the aristocratic women of the old kingdoms. :-)

“Must visit”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

A very nice street full of small old stores where you can find handmade products. If you visit it early in the morning before all the tourist rush, you really feel the history that this place has been through.
