Tsarevets Fortress

I stopped in my hotel for the hottest part of the day, then headed up to the fortress after four.

Tsarevets Fortress is the grand sight I'd spotted from the taxi on my arrival in town the previous night. It's the most dramatic historic spot in Veliko Tarnovo, this town of three hills.

The fortress itself was imposing, its giant walls rising dramatically above the ridge, and I wandered for almost two hours. But even more incredible was the view of the lush, green valley, the hills rising and falling above it.

I'm not saying I'm ready to drop everything and move to Bulgaria, but what a view.
