Samovodska charshia

The Samovodska charshia is the old market in the old capital of Bulgaria – Veliko Turnovo. In the early 19 th century, when the town was rapidly developing, there emerged a shopping center with lots of retail outlets and artisan workshops, bakeries and cafes. The nowadays existing workshops recreate the Renaissance atmosphere. There are cutlery, tannery, pottery, a carpenter’s shops and a weaving workshop, where the artisans follow authentic technologies of work.
During the 19 th century the important Tarnovian inns were located there. The most popular among them was the Hadji Nikoli Inn, which hosts nowadays the Ethnographic museum.

Today the architectural heritage site Somovodska charshia includes the monument and the museum house of the eminent Bulgarian writer Emilian Stanev and the monument of Stefan Stambolov – an active figure from the time of the Bulgarian Liberation, who afterwards became Prime-minister of Bulgaria (1887-1894).
