Bulgaria

The National Assembly


Even the dour Prussian Field-Marshal Von Moltke was moved to remark that he had never seen a town of more romantic location than Veliko Tarnovo, which seems poised to leap into the chasms that divide the city. Medieval fortifications add melodrama to the scene, and the huddles of antique houses seem bound to the rocks by wild lilac and vines. But for Bulgarians the city has a deeper significance.

When the National Assembly met here to draft Bulgarias first constitution in 1879, it did so in the former capital of the Second Kingdom (11851396), whose civilization was snuffed out by the Turks.
