Bey House

History of the Building

The Bey House was built in 1864 and is one of the landmark historic buildings of Bulgaria's Old Capital, Veliko Tarnovo. When the Ottomans ruled Bulgaria, a "Bey" was an appointed member of the elite Turkish class, similar to a count. The last "Bey" of the city and region was Konchashooglu (pronounced: khan-cha-shoe-glue), who commissioned the building and lived within its walls until Bulgaria's liberation.

The Town

Tarnovo, now Veliko Tarnovo, which means "Great," signifies its status as the medieval capital of the Second Bulgarian Tsardom. Known as the "City of the Tsars" and “Third Rome” this fairytale place is unlike any other in the world. Built along the meandering Yantra River, the city's hills and valleys create a picturesque landscape from every vantage point. Veliko Tarnovo sits on four hills that reach high from the banks of the Yantra, with endless stairs weaving up and down throughout the town.

The Chambers

Each chamber represents what the Tsarina's royal quarters might have looked like, with unique details and photographs from her life. Original 19th and early 20th-century antique furniture and artwork make you believe that you are staying at the Tsarinas' palace, with oak hardwood floors, plush oriental rugs, ornate crown mounding, grand mirrors, and highly detailed hand-painted walls.

The structure was erected by Kolyu Ficheto's student, Ivan Penchev, and is one of the most beautifully constructed buildings within the old town. The building has been completely renovated, except for the original foundation and surrounding walls, which feature the signature red-brick façade, and now includes entirely modern installations. The renovations have preserved the building’s historic integrity for the time.

The original property had several rooms, which have been reduced to four chambers, making for more spacious and glamorous bedrooms and bathrooms. They are all named after the Tsarinas of the Third Bulgarian Tsardom.

The Town

Tarnovo, now Veliko Tarnovo, which means "Great," signifies its status as the medieval capital of the Second Bulgarian Tsardom. Known as the "City of the Tsars" and “Third Rome” this fairytale place is unlike any other in the world. Built along the meandering Yantra River, the city's hills and valleys create a picturesque landscape from every vantage point. Veliko Tarnovo sits on four hills that reach high from the banks of the Yantra, with endless stairs weaving up and down throughout the town. A local saying is that there are two directions in VT, "Up or Down,” because of the rare geography on which the town is built. Walking around the original medieval cobblestone streets, one gets transported in time to a town of a thousand years ago. As you ascend or descend amongst the nooks and crannies of the ancient town, you will discover something new at every turn.

The oldest part of town is where the mighty fortress Tsarevets is located. Tsarevets dominates the landscape and history of the city. The castle includes the Tsar's royal palace and living quarters of the royal court. It was also the city's main form of defence and the cultural and religious centre of the entire Bulgarian Tsardom. Travellers can walk along the vast walls of the fortress, climb up to the cathedral, which overlooks the whole city; or even visit "execution rock," a tip at the farthest end of the fortress where punished people in the medieval ages met their fate. Walking past Tsarevets, one can descend closer to the Yantra River to find "Bishop's Bridge," a wide wooden footbridge that crosses the narrows which has been around since medieval times. From Bishop's Bridge, one gets a sense of the majesty of Tsarevets and the old town, which could be explored for days.

The Blue Hour in the Old Capital is one of the best times to explore the city, as the lights come on, drinks flow, and the streets become lively. There are many places throughout the hilly town to take in the beautiful sunsets, and when it is completely dark, that's when the magic happens with the sound and light show atop Tsarevets Fortress. The new part of town is where more modern relics can be discovered from the past three centuries. Massive murals from soviet times can be found on many buildings, telling stories of a bygone time. Monuments commemorating Bulgaria's long and tumultuous history, from their liberation from the Ottomans to the fall of The Iron Curtain, can be found throughout. Quaint shops with local crafters dot the sides of the streets, which sell precious objects unique to the region. Modern bars and restaurants provide a new-world vibe, offering traditional Bulgarian meals or some of the best pizza in Europe, challenging even Italy's pies.

You will leave your heart in this place. After you come, you will fall in love with the people, the culture, the history, and the food. You will fall in love with this ancient, beautiful city.

The Chambers

Each chamber represents what the Tsarina's royal quarters might have looked like, with unique details and photographs from her life. Original 19th and early 20th-century antique furniture and artwork make you believe that you are staying at the Tsarinas' palace, with oak hardwood floors, plush oriental rugs, ornate crown mounding, grand mirrors, and highly detailed hand-painted walls.  

All of the chambers have plenty of natural light, but if you'd like to enjoy your slumber a bit longer, each of them is equipped with a digital tablet that controls the full black-out curtains, central air-conditioning, and even LED lights behind the crown moulding. Just press a button on the digital tablet, and instantly, your chamber will be in complete darkness. The overhead lighting inset within the crown moulding can be dimmed as desired, creating the perfect nighttime atmosphere for a playful or restful night.

All bathrooms in Bey House have premium Grohe fixtures and the famous Italian Carrara marble. All toilets feature the most advanced remote-controlled bidet systems, which are deodorizing and self-cleaning. The toilet seat, which features a soft LED nightlight, opens and closes automatically when you enter the bathroom, and you can also lift it with the press of a button, never having to touch the seat.  

Every bathroom has a tropical rainfall shower on the ceiling at the height of 2.3-meters (7.5 feet) for ultimate relaxation. Showers also include an extendable shower hose from the wall and Malin+Goetz designer toiletries. Step out of the shower or bath with your plush Turkish bathrobe and soft slippers.The doors to each chamber are built from solid oak and are 8-centimeters thick for complete privacy. The windows are also triple-paned, which makes the chambers completely silent from outside noise.
