This nice but pretty short cobblestone street is in central Tarnovo. Old houses dating back to the Ottoman era dominate it, renovated in Bulgarian revival style. Many souvenir shops, artisans establishments and cafes. Nice place to stroll around for an hour.

Absolutely all of them were open. There were more tourist on Sunday than on Friday. The street is full of life on Sunday.But my advise is first to look and compare prices as well some shops give discounts if asked.
