Hi there! I'm Svetoslav from Traventuria. I'm passionate about showing the best that Bulgaria has to offer in various 1-day trips to cultural and historical locations. On this tour, either I, Lubo or Martin will be your guides for the day. The three of us have vast knowledge, experience and you'll see for yourself one of the oldest cities in the world.
