Bulgaria is dotted with small towns. Many of them have ‘old towns’ – entire neighbourhoods preserved from modern development. Lovech is a charming town which boasts a wooden covered bridge, which is one of only three of its kind in Europe! Once you cross the Osam river over the Covered Bridge you can immerse yourself in the charming hilly old quarter. There you can get lost exploring. There are a few museums, most unique is the newly renovated Ottoman bath. Take the steps leading to the medieval fortress on top of the hill and you will be rewarded with spectacular views of the city and the area around it, which is very green. At the end you can reward yourself with a tasty meal at one of the several old-style taverns in the old town.
