Walk to Garga Bair and the Cradle of Love

The Garga Bair locality offers a picturesque panoramic view of Veliko Tarnovo and has gained popularity in recent years for the Cradle of Love. We at HillView have a specially prepared tour for you to enjoy the breathtaking views of the river. Yantra, Veliko Tarnovo and the Balkan Mountains.

Garga bair

Garga Bair is located less than a kilometer north of Trapezitsa Hill near Veliko Tarnovo and about 1.5 km southwest of the center of the village of Arbanassi. There used to be a slaughterhouse west of the hill, which is why flocks of garga used to hover over it, hence its name. In the 19th century, a Turkish fortification existed in the southwestern part of Garga Bair. From there you have a great view - Veliko Tarnovo, Tsarevets and Trapezitsa. The purpose of the fortification was to protect Tarnovo from the advancing Russian troops of General Gurko. The place is quite picturesque, you pass through a forest, then you get great views of Tsarevets, one of the meanders of the Yantra River, a panoramic view of the old capital, Vladika Bridge, the Balkan Mountains and Trapezitsa.

The Cradle of Love

The cradle, with a romantic name, is located on the rocky crown of Garga Bair. About 1.5 km from the centre of the old capital. The cradle is a wooden seat attached by metal chains and ropes to two tall trees. It faces southeast over the city. The place is quite picturesque, you pass through a forest, after it you can see great views of Tsarevets, one of the meanders of the Yantra River, panoramic views of the old capital, Vladika Bridge, the Balkan Mountains and Trapezitsa.

We at HillView suggest you enjoy the fascinating view by getting there by off-road walk. The off-road adventure is a 2 hour walk with a medium level of difficulty and visits to 2 to 3 beautiful areas. More information can be found at the link above.
