The municipal administration announced that the first part of the project for restoration and conservation of “Shishman’s Bath” in Veliko Tarnovo has been completed.
Over the installed protection structure there will be built a roof against adverse weather conditions.
The historic site was declared a standalone cultural treasure of national significance. The funds for its restoration and exposure amount to BGN 725 000 obtained by Veliko Tarnovo Municipality pursuant to the measures of the European Economic Area.
According to evidence from the archaeologists, the bath functioned between the 15th and 16th century. The first data of its existence are found in the records of Karel Škorpil dated 1893.
The site is located in the “Asenov” neighbourhood near the churches “St. Peter and St. Paul” and “St. Ivan Rilski”.
It is envisaged after the conservation and renovation, the site to become part of the tourist route associated with the medieval history of Veliko Tarnovo.Източник: БТА
