Overnight in Sofia.

 

Day 2:

Breakfast: Hotel dining room.

All day in Sofia, Bulgaria’s capital.

Founded more than 7 000 years ago, it has long been an important crossroads between Asia Minor and Europe. Situated in the foot of Mt Vitosha by curing mineral springs, the city is one of the oldest in Europe. Called Serdica in the age of the Thracians, Triaditsa under the Byzantines and Sredets under the Slavs, Sofia attracted ancient and later civilizations.

 

“Serdica is my Rome!” By the early 4th century, chroniclers already described the settlement of the Thracian tribe Serdi as ‘a splendid and noble city’. This was in the days of Emperor Constantine the Great. Strongly attached to Serdica, the Emperor often called the city his Rome and even intended to proclaim it capital of the Eastern Roman Empire. Ultimately, he did not – but he nevertheless built magnificent edifices for the grand ceremonies during his visits.

Sofia was proclaimed capital of Bulgaria in 1879, just a year after the Russian-Turkish War of Liberation of 1877-1878. It is the fourth Bulgarian capital after Pliska, Preslav and Veliko Tarnovo.

 

In the morning we’ll drive to the outskirts of the city to visit the National Museum of History, where the magnificent Thracian treasures of ancient gold are on display. We’ll also visit the famed Boyana Church, a remarkable UNESCO World Heritage Site with fascinating frescoes from the 13th century, reflecting both Byzantine and local Christian art traditions. They impress with the humanistic trends, which were unusual for the medieval period. The frescoes were painted by an unknown Bulgarian painter in the style of the Tarnovo School of Painting and are considered the finest examples of Bulgarian medieval art.

In the afternoon we’ll continue our exploration through the downtown area to see some of the most characteristic historical, architectural and cultural landmarks of Bulgaria’s capital. We will see the Roman Serdica Fortifications (3rd-5th centuries) and St. George’s Rotunda (4th century), which is the only building to survive completely, famous for its original architecture and unique frescoes. Painted several times in different ages (4th, 10th – 12th and 14th centuries), the majestic figures illustrate the development of monumental painting over several centuries, making the Rotunda one of the gems of Bulgarian and East European culture.

Other highlights this afternoon will be St. Sofia Basilica (6th century), which is one of the most valuable pieces of early Christian architecture in the Balkans, and the magnificent St. Alexander Nevski Memorial Church, built to the designs of the Russian architect Pomerantsev from 1904 to 1912. The church is a masterpiece of 20th-century architecture, splendidly decorated. The underground crypt is a renowned Orthodox icon museum, which houses an impressive collection of icons from the 9th to 18th centuries. Some of these icons match the best works of Constantinople studios.

Overnight in Sofia.

 

Day 3:

In the morning we’ll take a sightseeing walk through downtown area to view some more emblematic architectural and historical buildings that illustrate Bulgaria’s long-lasting traditional ethnic and religious acceptance.

We will see the impressive Sephardic Synagogue, which is the third largest in Europe (next to the synagogues in Budapest and Amsterdam). The building was completed in 1912 and was designed by the Austrian architect Friedrich Gruenanger in a Spanish-Moresque and Byzantine style, preserving precisely the rules of Jewish monotheistic religion, while the temple resembles the Vienna synagogue, destroyed by the Nazis. Adjacent to the Synagogue is the unique Jewish Museum telling about the truly amazing story about the saving of the entire Jewish population in Bulgaria, amounting to 50 000 people, during the World War II. The Bulgarian people, led by their Orthodox Church Metropolitans Kiril and Stefan, stood in the way of the Nazi machine and ultimately not a single Bulgarian Jew was deported to Nazi death camps. Anti-Semitism never had roots in Bulgaria and Jews have always been an integral part of the Bulgarian society.

Close to the Synagogue is situated the beautiful Banya Bashi mosque which is one of the oldest in Europe. It was designed by the great Ottoman architect Mimar Sinan and was completed in 1576. The name ‘banya bashi’ comes from the neighboring natural thermal spas, as in the Turkish language it means “a lot of baths”.

In the afternoon we will continue with  a ‘socialist tour’ of Sofia. We’ll see the monument of the Soviet Army in Borisova Garden to learn about the influence and relations with the Soviet Union and the spreading of Soviet Propaganda into every aspect of Bulgarian life. Then visit the newly opened museum of Socialist Art. Walking sightseeing tour of downtown area along Vitosha Blvd: we’ll see NDK (National Palace of Culture) a genuine ‘product of communist architecture’ - the largest congress hall on the Balkans, which today still holds the annual congress events of the Socialist Party; continue on foot to St. Nedelya Church  to learn about its bombing by the communist party in 1925 that caused over 100 casualties; in the area we’ll see also the huge building of the former Communist Party, where all important decisions for the society had been taken.

Instead of Socialist tour of Sofia  we can have optional  an excursion in the Mt Vitosha to see the ‘stone rivers’ natural phenomenon and enjoy scenic beauties.

Overnight Sofia.

Day 4:

Breakfast: Hotel dining room.

Transfer Day: Travel from Sofia to Plovdiv.

 

In the morning, en route, we’ll stop to see the Rila Monastery, which is the most impressive of all Bulgarian monasteries. Located 90 miles south of Sofia in the Rila Mountains, the monastery is an original national museum with a century-old history.

The monastery dates back to the 10th century, but has been plundered and burned down several times. The present building was built in mid-19th century (1816–1848). Located in the gorgeous mountain scenery of the mountains, it is considered the highest achievement of Bulgarian monumental architecture of the National Revival period (18th-19th centuries). It is also a monument of international significance, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.

In the afternoon we’ll continue our scenic drive through the Rila Mountains, passing via the famous Borovets mountain resort. Late afternoon arrival in Plovdiv and settle in at your hotel (4* category), located in downtown area.

 

Overnight in Plovdiv.

 

Day 5:

Breakfast: Hotel dining room.

All day in Plovdiv, Bulgaria’s second largest city.

 

Plovdiv is majestic! If you love art and Roman archaeology- this is a fantastic place!

The ancient and picturesque city of Plovdiv has a history that dates back thousands of years, traces of which have survived to the present day. Recently, British archaeologists proclaimed Plovdiv to be the sixth oldest city in the world.

It was founded by the Thracians in the 2nd millennium BCE and called Eumolpia, and has had several names since then, like Philipopolis after Philip II of Macedon (342 BCE); Trimontium, i.e. ‘the City on Three Hills’ during the Roman times when it was the major city of the Roman province of Thrace (1st century CE).

The Old Town was built in the 18th-19th centuries as the center of the Bulgarian National Revival architecture. Along steep cobblestone lanes, behind stone walls and iron-studded heavy oak gates, one could glimpse at verdure and flowers, surrounding the typical Plovdiv symmetrical houses with their painted facades, oriels and jetties and grid windows. Every house here has its own style and atmosphere, its intimate world with carved ceilings and bright murals, window seats and fine furniture from Venice, Vienna and London.

During the day we’ll explore the historical, architectural and cultural landmarks of ancient Plovdiv.

In the morning we’ll see the 2nd century Roman forum and stadium, the fabulous Roman amphitheater, which was built during the time of Emperor Trajan (98-117), and the fortress walls of ancient Trimontium. We’ll also see Dzhumaya mosque which was built as an imperial mosque by Sultan Murad II in about year 1423. It is said to be one of the three examples of the oldest type of the Ottoman worship buildings still preserved on the Balkan Peninsula.

In the afternoon our walking sightseeing tour continues in the fascinating Old Town. We’ll see the charming Ethnographical museum and some of the museum-houses of prominent 19th-century Plovdiv citizens; the art gallery-museum of one of the most famous modern Bulgarian painters of the 20th century, and the beautiful St Constantine and St Helena church, completed in 1832, which contains murals painted by Zakhari Zograph, who was the best known Bulgarian artist during the period of the National Revival. After the tour, we’ll have plenty of opportunities to stroll in the Old Town or in the High Street on our own, and to enjoy the artistic manner of life, which is so typical for this charming city.

Overnight Plovdiv.

 

Day 6:

Breakfast: Hotel dining room.

 

Transfer Day: Travel from Plovdiv to Veliko Tarnovo.

In the morning we’ll take a scenic drive through the famous Valley of Roses. This is the home of Bulgarian Rosa Damascena, which is the source for the production of the exquisite and rare Bulgarian rose oil, also known as “attar of roses”, used as a key source for many of world’s finest perfumes. May and June are the most majestic months for visiting the Valley of Roses, as then the rose fields are blossoming and the whole valley is absorbed with rose fragrance. We’ll visit a rose oil distillery and plantation en route to learn about rose-growing and rose oil production in Bulgaria.

Rose picking lasts for about a month, from around May 20 to June 20, however this depends on the actual weather conditions. Rose picking is done early in the morning, from 5 a.m. till not later than 9-10 a.m. The process is very labor-consuming, for example a kilogram of rose oil requires about 300 kilograms of rose blossoms. A kilogram of rose oil costs about 5500 euros on the international markets.

Every first Saturday and Sunday of June the traditional Rose Festival takes place, which is unforgettable experience of Bulgarian beauty, merriment and hospitality.

Later in the morning we’ll stop in the town of Kazanlak to visit the world-famous Thracian tomb (4th century BCE), a renowned UNESCO World Heritage Site. The area around Kazanlak became particularly popular in the last two decades, as many new Thracian tombs were unearthed there, presenting the evolution of the Thracian culture in the 5th-4th century BCE. Bulgaria and the world started to speak about the Valley of the Thracian kings. The Kazanlak Thracian Tomb was the first cultural site in Bulgaria which was included in the UNESCO World Heritage List. This mausoleum of 4th century BCE was discovered in 1944. The style is typical for Thracian tombs from the 5th to 4th century BCE, with a vaulted entrance corridor and a chamber topped by a beehive dome. The dome frescoes paintings are the greatest treasure of the tomb. They are a masterpiece of Hellenistic art and depict the civil and military life of a Thracian noble who was buried there. The original site is located inside a protected building, and the replica is right next to it and is open to visitors.

In the afternoon we’ll continue our scenic drive through the historical Shipka Pass in the Balkan Mountains, which is one of the most important roads connecting the South and the North part of Bulgaria. It is a famous historical site, due to the dramatic events during the War of Liberation (1877-1878). A bloody battle was fought here in August 1877 when 7500 Russian soldiers and Bulgarian volunteers, held the position against 30,000 Turks. On top of the peak is the Monument of Freedom (over 30 m high), which was built in the period of 1926-1934 honoring to the soldiers who fell in the fierce battle to defend the peak. 894 steps lead up to the monument.

Later, we’ll stop to see the Etara Museum of Architecture and Ethnography. This is an open-air village museum with numerous artisan workshops, the only one of its kind in Southeastern Europe. It displays the authentic atmosphere of a typical Bulgarian town from the period of the National Revival in the 18th – 19th centuries. In the authentic workshops of the museum more than 20 traditional Bulgarian crafts are being practiced in their traditional technological cycle.

Late afternoon arrival in Veliko Tarnovo and settle in at your hotel (4* category), located in downtown area. Overnight in Veliko Tarnovo.

 

Day 7:

Breakfast: Hotel dining room.

 

All day in Veliko Tarnovo, Bulgaria’s medieval capital city.

The regal city of Veliko Tarnovo with its famed archeological sites was the capital of the Second Bulgarian Kingdom (1185 – 1396), when Bulgaria was one of the largest states in Europe, until the Ottoman Empire captured it. The city has been at the center of many important historical events and was the birthplace of the first Bulgarian constitution. Perched on steep hills overlooking the Yantra River, the Old Town’s narrow, lantern-lit streets wind past ancient ruins and unique architecture. The Tsarevets Hill is a natural inaccessible fortress perched on a steep hill where the Royal Palace and the Patriarch Church once stood. There are also remarkable 12th–14th century medieval churches and monasteries, and also many historical buildings like the Town Hall (1872), where in 1879 the First Constitution of Bulgaria was proclaimed.

 

 The Samovodene Market Street has been revived with its small workshops where master goldsmiths, potters, carvers, weavers and pastry cooks keep busy with their crafts. The nearby historical village of Arbanassi was known as the Royal residence of the Second Bulgarian Empire. It holds fast to the traditions of the Old Bulgarian architecture and its oldest stone buildings resemble inaccessible fortresses with their tiny windows like embrasures, but with richly decorated interiors of carvings and wrought iron, recalling the wealthy life of their former inhabitants. Of the 80 preserved houses, 36 have been declared national monuments of culture.

 

In the morning we’ll take a sightseeing walk in the Fortress at Tsarevets Hill. Afterwards we’ll take a short drive to the village-museum of Arbanassi, famous for its traditional architecture and the beautifully decorated Nativity church, dating from the 16th – 17th centuries. Dug into the ground with austere exterior, hidden domes and without a belfry, it is a genuine art gallery containing 3,500 figures painted by unknown masters of different periods. Our sightseeing tour continues in the afternoon viewing the architectural landmarks of the Old Town and in the Samovodene Market Street, a traditional 19th century artisan and shopping area.

Overnight in Veliko Tarnovo.

Picturesquely situated in the valley of the Rusenski Lom River Nature Park, this is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, famous for its valuable murals from various ages. They are all full of life and light, showing many figures in expressive and dramatic poses against the architectural background.

Day 9 : Bucharest – Snagov – Sinaia – Azuga - Brasov

An interesting place to visit is Snagov monastery raised by Vlad Ţepes - the Wallachian prince who inspired Bram Stoker’s novel and numerous legend. This will be our first stop. Afterwards we continue to Sinaia with a visit to the Orthodox Monastery and continue with the stunning Peles Castle.

Peles Palace is one of the best-preserved royal palaces in Europe and one of the most beautiful castles in all Europe. It was the final resting place for several Romanian monarchs including King Carol I, who died here in 1914.

The building of the castle began in 1873 under the direct order of the Viennese architect Wilhem Doderer and was continued in 1876 by his assistant. During 1877-1879, because of the war, the work was abandoned. The location for the castle was chosen by the German Prince Carol I Hohenzollern, who was to become a king and it draws its name from the neighboring brooks which pass through the courtyard.

The castle was built in wood, stone, bricks and marble and comprises more than 160 rooms. The representative style used is German Renaissance, but one can easily discover elements belonging to the Italian Renaissance, Gothic, German Baroque and French Rococo style.

Peles is surrounded by seven terraces decorated with statues, stone-made-wells, ornamental vases and Carrara marble. The architects used an abundance of wooden decoration, both for the exterior and for the interior of the castle, which confers a very special quality to the building.

Quite outstanding are the Big Armory Room, the Small Armory Room, the Florentine Room, the Reception Room (where paintings and wooden sculptures depicting 16 castles of the Hohenzollerns are exhibited), the Moorish Room, the French Room, the Turkish Room, the Council Room, the Concert Room as well as the Imperial Suite.

Other exquisite attractions such as the statues, the ceramics, the gold and silver plates, the Meissen and Sevres porcelain, the Murano crystal chandeliers, German stained-glass windows, walls covered with Cordoba leather, ebony and ivory sculptures, as well as the extensive weapons collections are worth mentioning. It is also important to know that Peles Castle shelters one of the most important and most valuable painting collections in Europe, almost 2,000 pieces.


We will drive to Azuga for a wine tasting session during which you will learn about the traditional technique that they use in order to produce sparkling wine. Sparkling wine has been produced in Azuga since 1892, when a German merchant established Rhein & Cie. This location was chosen for its climactic conditions and proximity to the vineyards.The foaming wines ferment by a special process of sitting on racks deep inside the old Rhein wine cellars, which still exist today as they did when the company was established.

Our trip continues with Brasov, a popular destination in Romania among the tourists. The city was founded by the Teutonic Knights in 1211 and it exudes a distinct medieval ambiance. Walking through the Council Square, we will reach the Old Town Hall situated right in the center, and afterwards we will visit the Black Church, the biggest religious building of its kind between Vienna and Istanbul.

Overnight in Brasov.

Day 10 : Brasov – Bran Castle – Prejmer - Sighisoara

Breakfast

Today we will continue our discovery of Brasov city with visits to Brasov’s Fortress, Schei Gate, Ecaterina Gate of 1540 and The Rope Street, the narrowest street in Europe. Next on our itinerary is the Bran Castle, one of the most famous castles in the world, also known as Dracula’s Castle.

We arrive at the famous Bran Castle situated in an old village of the same name.

Bran Castle is considered as the home of Dracula, in so far as Vlad Tepes the original Romanian Prince who inspired the legend, once lived there. Bram Stoker, the author of the book, was also inspired by this castle and the Transylvanian lands and villages surrounding it.

The first document regarding Bran Castle is a paper issued on November 19, 1377 by Ludwig I d’Anjou, by which Brasov inhabitants received the privilege of building the Fortress “at their own work and expense”.

Between 1920-1927 Bran Castle was restored under the leadership of Karel Liman, the Architect of the Royal Court, who transformed it into a beautiful Summer Residence surrounded by a park with promenade alleys, lake, fountains, arbors, and a tea house. In 1938 Queen Maria bequeathed Bran Castle with all its domains, to her daughter, Princess Ileana, who owned it until 1948.

Dracula’s Legend– The famous legend of Dracula is largely due to the book written by Bram Stoker, which, has since inspired countless films and stage productions. Stoker, himself, for inspiration, relied on the historical image of the Romanian prince Vlad Tepes, who ruled between 1456 and 1462. Perhaps more than anything else, the mythological character Dracula is known for his deeply evil nature. His favored weapons were his sharp fangs, and it is no coincidence that impalement, one of the most terrifying manners of dying, was always the torture method the original Prince Dracula preferred; that is where his name, (Vlad Tepes = Vlad the Impaler) emanates.

The cruelty of his punishment for the lack of loyalty and honesty coincides with his name. In Romanian it means “the devil”. In 1431 the Saint Roman Emperor Sigismund of Luxemburg granted Dracula’s father, Vlad II, the Dragon order, a chivalrous order, for fights against the Turks. The emblem of the order was a dragon, symbol of the devil. The legend and the true story of Dracula meet and are kept alive by other Romanian tourist destinations; Snagov Monastery close to Bucharest or Bran Castle, close to Brasov.

We’ll head off to the Prejmer fortress, included in the UNESCO World Heritage Fund and an important highlight of the tour. Its defense walls have been transformed into shelter homes in wartime, so that thefortress has the appearance of a honeycomb. Fascinated by life in the countryside and the peaceful atmosphere of this Transylvanian village, His Royal Highness restored one of the traditional houses, making it the place where he returns every year in May. Besides admiring the specific architecture of Viscri houses, we’ll visit the small church surrounded by thick walls and the tower where the locals traditionally keep their pickles and preserves.

We will reach Sighisoara considered the only medieval fortress within UNESCO that’s currently inhabited.

Overnight in Sighisoara.

Sighisoara is the only medieval citadel whose old buildings are still in a functional state and well kept. The town dates from around 1190. From the very beginning, the inhabitants of the town were artisans, organized in guilds (the oldest guild in Sighisoara dates from 1376).

The Sighisoara citadel has a very rich story, written in stone by its celebrated guild towers – the Leather Dresser’s Tower, the Tinker’s Tower, the Goldsmith’s Tower, the Rope Maker’s Tower, the Butcher’s Tower, the Furrier’s Tower, the Tailor’s Tower and the Locksmith’s Tower.
Alongside these are the vast Church on the Hill (from 1345), the Monastery Church (built in 13th century), the Venetian House and the House of the Stag, named after the stag head affixed to the corner of the building, which dates from the 17th century, as a living embodiment of the renaissance, Transylvanian Style.
