VRC Bulgaria: Veliko Tarnovo & Arbanasi

Veliko Tarnovo is dominated by the citadel but some of the town buildings sport a kind of siding I had never seen.

I was much more fascinated by nearby Arbanasi.  The Ottoman influence was clear in the home of the Turkish merchant Konstantsaliyata.
The simple exterior of Nativity Church of Christ provided no clue as to the frescoes and other treasures inside.  And the enthusiasm and knowledge of our guide was unsurpassed.
