   Surviving for many centuries, Veliki Preslav will tell you not only about past greatness, but will also offer interesting aspects of his modern life. Here are some of them:


   Home-folklore houses:

   Preslav has a rural, peaceful lifestyle that is attractive in his own unique way. This is evident in the Ethnographic “Kartol’s house” of V. Preslav, the ethnographic house in the village of Dragoevo and the quiet rural life of the nearby village of Osmar. If you decide to come to the city in a group, you can request a visit to the Ethnographic House to attend the re-creation of the Preslav customs of the folklore group and to taste local dishes and wines.

   There are three churches in the town that you would like to be interested in as a tourist - "St. Peter and Paul", which dates from the 18th century, the church "St. Archangel Michael "in the center of the town and" St. Cyril and Methodius "- in the century old pine forest in the Archaeological reserve. They give an interesting idea of church architecture and art, developed over many years.

   Kamchia River: Kamchia River is the main river in eastern Bulgaria. The area around the river, from the Ticha dam to the two bridges near the archaeological reserve, is particularly attractive for tourists - campsites, fishing and mountain climbers.
