Itinerary

Join us for a walking tour around the bright, colourful neighbourhood of Balat. The area is undergoing a rejuvenation and the old houses have been renovated and painted bright colours, making the area very instagram-worthy! There's a lot of history to be found here and many sites are UNESCO heritage protected. During the Ottoman Empire, Jewish people were resettled in Balat and there were once seven synagogues here, but today only two are in good condition, Ahrida and Yambol Synagogues, which we will visit. We'll also see Armenian churches including the Church of Surp Hreşdagabet and the famous cast-iron Church of St Stephen, a Bulgarian Orthodox Church. Finally, we'll walk by the city walls and the ruins of the Byzantine palace, Tekfur Saray. We hope your tour will be a memorable one and we look forward to see you in the future on another TravelShop Booking Tour. Have a safe trip back home and thanks for choosing TravelShop Booking.
