How to watch the programme

First you need to check the dates and starting hours of the upcoming shows at the SHOWS section of this site.

There you will find two types of shows – paid and free.

The free shows can be watched from Tsar Asen I Square in front of the main gate of Tsarevets Fortress. In such case the traffic through the square is stopped, the street lights are turned off and the soundtrack of the show is on.

If the announced shows are paid, you have to buy tickets using the online shopping system in this site.

Free admission for children under the age of 7 (not occupying a seat). Children aged 7-18 will pay a discounted rate.

The tickets are valid for the special panoramic viewing terrace (also called VIP Hall Tsarevgrad), located on 6 Nikola Pikolo St in Veliko Tarnovo, with entrance just behind the Nativity of Virgin Mary Cathedral. The hall has the best possible view of Tsarevets Hill, panoramic windows and air conditioning, so you can enjoy the show in all seasons and weather conditions.

When the show is paid, its soundtrack is not available at the square, only at the panoramic viewing terrace.

In some cases there are available tickets for shows, which are announced as free. This means that you can watch the show for free from the square in front of Tsarevets Fortress, but you can also buy tickets and watch it from the comfortable VIP Hall.

If the announced dates of the upcoming shows are not convenient and do not match with your visit to Veliko Tarnovo, groups can place an order for the show in advance on tel. +359 885 08 08 65 or email: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..
