Getting to Know Veliko Tarnovo: The City of Stairs

I’m very happy to share with you my article about Veliko Tarnovo, a.k.a the city where I live, which recently got published on Travelista Club. This is an article that I have been longing to see on the web because it shows my love for this gorgeous city in Bulgaria which is worth visiting, exploring and talking about. Once you have been there, you can never forget it. It just gets stuck in your heart, forever refusing to leave its side.

How I ended up living in Veliko Tarnovo

Now, I’m not going to copy-paste the article here, though. Instead, you should follow this link to get the chance to read it through. But I would like to tell you how I fell in love with it. I moved to VT in the second half of 2008 and have been living here ever since. Long story short, I came here to study after I graduated from high school. Overall, I’ve had some good days and some bad days, I’ve created many memories and made friends. This is my life now.

If you want to know the truth, I didn’t exactly plan to study in Veliko Tarnovo. I’d say it was my plan B. But when I came here to do some admission tests assigned by the university, I don’t know, something about that city made my heart skip a beat. Was it the many houses that are perched on the hills, or the tucked-away cobbled streets? Is it the atmosphere? Or the beautiful monuments? Maybe all of it. I can’t really tell.

One thing is for sure: I wasn’t thrilled with the countless stairs that it came packed with. One person called VT “the city of hanging gardens” in the past, and I’d say it is “the city of stairs” in the first place. They are everywhere! It’s either stairs or hills. There is no escape. But it’s good for your physical health, you know.

So, I decided to take a chance on Veliko Tarnovo in 2008 and here I am, nine years later, still head over heels in love with it and still not regretting my choice.

And despite the “stair-icious” challenges that I have to face on the daily, I can’t imagine spending my days anywhere else.

I think the article will give you an idea of what I’m talking about. Of course, the best way to experience these emotions that I occasionally go through is to plan a trip to this amazing city. I suggest you follow that link and read my article for more details.

Happy reading, fellows! And don’t forget to leave a comment and share it with your friends.
