Veliko Turnovo (Велико Търново. also transliterated as Veliko Tarnovo ) is a mountain city located in the north of Bulgaria.

Although Veliko Turnovo's "Airport Gorna Oryahovitsa" located 4 km away is currently not open to passenger air traffic (it is possible to arrange private aircraft landings there by arrangement), it is possible to fly to Bulgaria's capital city Sofia, or the coastal city of Varna and then by rail or modern coach to Veliko Turnovo.

There is a small railway station in the town and it is possible to get a taxi to the centre of town from there for a cheap price. It usually serves trains that travel North-South and connect to the main lines : northern line (Bucharest, Rousse, Varna) and sothern line ( Plovdiv, Bourgas and Istanbul. There are also local buses going just by the station, go to the bus stop next to a small restaurant building. There are buses at least every 20 minutes, and it costs 0,70 levs (

0,35 €). You should have small money with you. A bus ride to the city center takes about 10-15 minutes.

An alternative is to get a train at the larger railway station at the nearby town of Gorna Oryahovitsa. You could then take a bus/minibus/taxi from Gorna Oryahovitsa station to Veliko Turnovo. Taxi from/to Gorna Oryahovitsa to/from Veliko Tarnovo should cost 8-10 levs - you can ask for fixed price if you want to be sure.

If you are planning to take the train to another country, tickets can't be bought at the train terminal. This is a place just behind the tourist information center where you can buy international tickets. The train station is at considerable distance from this place.

One of the main roads in Bulgaria runs through the city, so car transport is not a problem to and from the city. Since the town is located relatively in the centre of Bulgaria, it is quite comfortable to stop there for an hour to rest and get a glimpse of the sights.

Busses run approximately hourly from Sofia and Varna. Several buses daily run from Plovdiv, Rousse and other major Bulgarian cities. The small bus station is

1km far from the centre of town so arrange pickup during winter. The ticket for the busses, departuring from Sofia to Turnovo, costs about 20-22 leva (10-11 euro).
