Medieval Fortress once used for trading and observation purposes. At its premises there were town hall, church, observation towers, barracks, fire range for the army and stables. At the entrance there is a small museum with ancient artifacts and weapons from that time.

Totally worth a visit if you are in Sliven. I would recommend to book a guide so you can get most of the visit. It was very educational and the stuff was very friendly.
