In the heart of Veliko Tarnovo is one of the biggest attractions of the city that brings the spirit and tradition of our past. Samovodska bazaar occurred in the second half of XIX century, when Tarnovo started to grow both narrow cobblestone streets become the economic center of the city. In Fridays peasants from nearby villages gather to sell their products. So gradually the vegetable market about masters and craftsmen began to open stores, shops and inns.

Today ethnographic complex Samovodska bazaar attracts guests of the city with its unique authentic atmosphere that will transport you in the past. High stone walls, old houses with overhanging balconies above the main street and small shops and workshops form the architectural appearance of the complex.

If you are visiting Samovodska bazaar, you should definitely try simidcheta fresh, taste the colorful sugar cockerels or watch how you prepare “kadaif”. Masters, who work in their small workshops, we'll show you the old techniques that work today.

You can enjoy the beautiful handmade shirts to buy a bottle of rose water or ceramic souvenirs, replicas of ancient jewelry and carvings.

On Samovodska bazaar are many antique shops, and several small art galleries. Here is the Hadji Nikoli Inn, which was built in 1858 by Kolyo Ficheto. Unfortunately in 1991 the building was privatized and you can enjoy it only outside.

Near Samovodska bazaar are wonderful little restaurants that offer delicious dishes from the Bulgarian cuisine.

The complex is open year round from Tuesday to Saturday. Opening hours of shops and workshops are from 9:00 to 18:00
