Veliko Turnovo is one of the most ancient cities in Bulgaria with over 5000 years of history. The first evidence of that date from the 3rd century B.C. and were found on Trapezitsa hill. According to historians, during the Middle ages Veliko Turnovo has been the new Constantinople, Jerusalem and Rome all together.

In 1185 the brothers Asen and Peter declared in “St. Demetrius” church the end of Byzantine slavery, which lasted 167 years and proclaimed Turnovo for a capital of the new Bulgarian Kingdom. The medieval town grew quickly and developed as the most impregnable fortress in Bulgaria in between 12th-14th century. It becomes the most significant political, economic, cultural and religious centre of Bulgaria.

Tsarevets Hill is surrounded on 3 sides by the Yantra river. During the Second Bulgarian Kingdom it was inhabited by the royal court, the boyars and the patriarch. It is surrounded by a bulwark and is built on natural cliffs. In the middle of Tsarevets rises the palace, which consisted of a solemn hall, “St. Petka” church, residential and commercial buildings, reservoirs and facilities for the guard.

After the liberation of Bulgaria and the Berlin agreement Veliko Turnovo becomes a temporary capital city - there is convened the Constituent Assembly in 1879, which is considered current until 1947 Tarnovo Constitution, the First Grand National Assembly, and many ordinary folk meetings.
