Travel to Pleven in Bulgaria

Bulgaria is one of the European countries that earns the most tourism every year, something that it achieves not only thanks to the beauty of its cities and landscapes but also because it is a cheaper destination than others such as France, the United Kingdom or Germany. Throughout its entire geography you can find cities and towns with a lot of charm and with a great story to tell.

Although the best known in the whole country is Sofia, its capital, there are many others that are worth visiting. One of them is Pleven , which is the seventh most populated and is in the north.

Whether for a one-day visit or a week-long stay, Pleven has a lot to offer.

Spring and summer are the best times to visit this city since it has a warm climate , but the truth is that in autumn and winter it is also very beautiful, so the cold should not be an impediment to enjoy it. Numerous archaeological finds were made there many years ago, being even one of the most important that were discovered throughout the country.

Many of the monuments in the city are related to the Russian-Turkish war that took place in ancient times, reaching more than 200 of all kinds. One of the most interesting places that is a must-see is the St. George Chapel , which houses the Conqueror Mausoleum that was built in honor of the Romanian and Russian soldiers who died at that time. The Pleven Panorama is another of the most important attractions, a place from which you can see the city from a very special point of view.

If you like museums, you cannot miss the Pleven Regional Historical Museum , which has several exhibitions by Bulgarian artists and also others with the most important European artists, such as Goya, Picasso, Chagall, Maurice, Daumier, Rodin, Degas , Dalí or Renoir.
