Arbanasi : Michelin's recommendations
Formerly the summer residence of the Tsars, this village-museum is a Unesco World Heritage site. Despite losing some of its authenticity on account of excessive restoration, it remains one of the most beautiful sites in Bulgaria, with numerous richly frescoed 16C and 17C churches and fortified dwellings, such as Kostancaliev House with its stone-built ground floor supporting a wooden upper storey.
