Fodor's Expert Review Samovodska Charshiya

Veliko Tarnovo Crafts

What was once the big city market is now a series of quaint cobblestone streets lined in beautifully restored pre- and post-Liberation houses-turned-workshops, bakeries, souvenir stands, and cafés. The artisans here specialize in wood carving, icon painting, weaving, pottery, and copper- and silversmithing. Alongside magnets and postcards, visitors will find handcrafted souvenirs like copper plates, wooden spoons, and ceramic cups.
