we would like to clear a couple of things:
- There is a reason why the spectacle is called Sound and light - if you thought that the lights are magnificient by themselves you have no idea what it is to experience the show...More
I had never been to such a Sound and Light show before, but I absolutely LOVED this one! Apart from being a lovely sight, it also reflected the country's history, so if you get yourself acquainted, the theme will make much more sense. Maybe a...More
We went to see the show with lots of expecations - several families with kids under 10, that must be fun! The light and sound coordination were good, but I would have expected at least some historical narrative to accompany it (especially when most of...More

It was one of a kind experience! I was truly mesmerized by the performance! The Sound and Light Show is a must see if you are visiting Veliko Tarnovo. I would most definately recommend it to all my friends. What`s more, I am deeply grateful...More
Definitely worth seeing. The choreography between the light and sound is stunning and extremely clever. This tops light shows in Hong Kong! A fantastic and truly memorable way to finish our trip to Bulgaria 😀

I saw the first show of the season and think it was mainly to test the lights as there was no sound and it wasn't really advertised. Watched from the restaurant at the edge of town which was a good choice and the show was...More
This light show offers the visitor a view of Tsarevgrad Turnov that is completely different from the daytime archaeological tour of the site. It is worth watching the coloured effect of lighting as it brings to life the breadth and atmosphere of this historically significant...More

Dear customer, thank you for these kind words! It was a pleasure to help you discover in a different way our old and very beautiful Veliko Tarnovo. I don`t think the tickets are that expensive and as you said it yourself , the show
Light was great but no sound was on.

Dear Violeta, Tsarevgrad Turnov - Sound and Light Show is a paid attraction. The only reason you haven`t heard the sound is you did not buy a ticket. The dates are published on our Facebook page and of course on the web site of soundandlight...More
