The old town of Lovech is famous for its beautiful architecture, typical of the Bulgarian Renaissance in the 19th century. The district was declared an architectural and historical reserve almost 50 years ago. Next to it is reached the covered bridge, made by master Kolyu Ficheto.
In Varosha lived mainly merchants. Their houses are specifically built facing the courtyard because the shops were on the covered bridge and the hosts didn’t want strange eyes to peek into the houses. Nowadays, like cuddly guards in these houses, they are proudly strolling well-watched and mating cats that lead you from landmark landmarks and gently rub your feet.
In Varosha today you can still see the famous wooden verandahs. They resemble modern terraces, but are mostly covered on top and side, and in winter they close it as they are today dressed in the balconies of some of the blocks. The kiosks gathered the family and the guests, who watched who was walking down the street and commented on it. Just like in modern cafes on the main streets of the city.
Above the quarter stands the Medieval Lovech Fortress, from which the Second Bulgarian Kingdom begins. The lower church is the Virgin Mary, where the Apostle of Freedom, Vasil Levski, served as a deacon. In the immediate vicinity of it is the museum of the revolutionary, which holds documents and objects related to his life and the personal weapon of Levski. Among the attractions of Varosha is the old city bath Delhi hamam, which is nowadays turned into an interactive water museum. Even the kindergarten “Maria Sirkova” is housed in an old Han building. In Varosha you can also see the gallery of Dimitar Kazakov.
