Camping Veliko Tarnovo

Location and atmosphere

The camping is situated in North Central Bulgaria, near the ancient capital of Bulgaria – Veliko Tarnovo, in the village of Dragizhevo. The family, Nick and Nicky Kinson are from the UK. Their love affair with Bulgaria started on their honeymoon in 2005 when they toured in Bulgaria traveling with their motorhome. After traveling through most of Europe and experiencing a wide range of campsites they were a little disappointed with the lack of quality campsite facilities in Bulgaria, especially for caravans and motorhomes. As they were both looking for a new challenge they searched extensively to find an ideal location to build their dream campsite and so their adventure began.
