The "Sound and Light" Show is a must-see if you are in Tarnovo when it takes place, usually on major national holidays. Awesome light show and perfect synchro between light and sound with the Tsarevets Fortress as background. In general it is designed to be watched from a special panoramic terrace but when the show is free of charge, the sound is also audible in the small square at the entrance to the fortress and the adjacent streets. We watched it from the roof balcony of the Studio Hotel nearby. Really impressive!

Watched this twice for free during our stay at Hotel Studio where we had the BEST view possible from our room overlooking the castle. You can pay to see this and it is worth it if you are only here for the one night, but as it was repeated so we were lucky. It was awesome each time and I completely recommend you catch it if you go there.

I was lucky enough to be in Bulgaria when a free light show would take place so I connected it with a visit to Veliko Tarnovo. I saw the city for about 3-4 hours and then went to the fortress square to watch the light show. It began at 19.10 and ended punctually at 19.30. I could easily go back to the bus station (a shot 5 minute taxi ride, walking it would be around 30 minutes) to catch my bus back to Sofia at 20.00. It is impressive and I find it lovely that such cool thing happens in a rather not so big city. I liked especially when rays were coming out of the fortress. The music is a bit creepy but it is cool. I liked the atmosphere, everyone was enjoying, many families with children despite the cold weather. Perhaps next time I get seats for the panoramic terrace. Would like to see some photos from there to see how different the view from the square is.

What an amazing experience! We were by chance in town for the Feast of St George so were fortunate enough to see the show. It depicts the history of the city, the former capital of Bulgaria using dramatic lighting and music around the fortress. If you have the opportunity, don't miss it!
