The village of Arbanassi is settled in close proximity with the medieval capital Veliko Turnovo. Established at the end of the 15th century by orthodox Greeks, Albanians and Makedonian Bulgarians the village gets to its glory in the 17th century.

Because of its unique fascination, architectural monuments and idiosyncrasy of the climate in 1921 by means of a royal decree the village of Arbanassi is proclaimed a resort and in 2000 for a “historical village” of national significance.

All the buildings with over 300-years history are preserved in their authentic style and boast with their unique architecture, woodcarving and art plaster ornaments.

5 churches and 2 monasteries, buit and decorated with murals and icons at the end of the 16th and the beginning of the 17th century, have been preserved in Arbanassi.

In the Uspenie Bogorodichno Monastery (The Assumption of the Holy Virgin) the visitors can see one of the miraculous icons of Christ’s Mother.

The village of Arbanassi offers an unique chance for an immediate touch to real masterpieces in the architecture, interior design and church painting from the 16 – 17 centuries.
