BULGARIAN ARCHAEOLOGY 7 - 14 AUGUST 2018 7 NIGHTS FROM £1,495.00

Alexander Nevski Memorial Cathedral, Sofia, Bulgaria

For decades after the Second World War Bulgaria lay firmly behind the Iron Curtain but now this fascinating and hospitable country has opened up once again and we are delighted to be able to visit a wide range of well-preserved archaeological sites, three of which are UNESCO World Heritage Sites. These are the famous Rila Monastery, set high in the mountains; Boyana Church with its outstanding frescoes; the historic town of Plovdiv, which can trace its roots to a Neolithic settlement of around 4000BC. Further highlights include the Kazanluk Thracian Tomb, and Veliko Tarnovo, the mediaeval capital of Bulgaria with a stunning location above the Yantra River.
