The walls of “Shishman’s Bath” in Veliko Tarnovo have been covered.


Protection structure was mounted on which there will be built a roof over the walls of “Shishman’s Bath” in Veliko Tarnovo. This was announced by the press centre of Veliko Tarnovo Municipality. The activity is part of the project for conservation, restoration and exposure of the cultural treasure, which is located in the “Asenov” neighbourhood near the churches “St. Peter and St. Paul” and “St. Ivan Rilski”.

The deadline for implementation of all activities is up to 30 April 2017 and funding to the amount of BGN 725 000 was provided to Veliko Tarnovo pursuant to the measures of the European Economic Area.

The project “Cultural heritage of the town of Veliko Tarnovo as a focal point of European cultural diversity” started with fortification of the western walls of “Shishman’s Bath”. The conservation intervention consists of modelled building on the other walls, restoration of the pillars of the hypocaust system to their actual height and restoration of the vaulted roof of the northern room and the actual floor. As a basis, there will be used the preserved remains and the observations during the archaeological excavations. It is envisaged the installation of a fence between the cultural monument and the street as well as building of a robust shielding structure guaranteeing protection of the original. The terrain around “Shishman’s Bath” will also be improved.

In order the requirement for improving the situation of Roma to be achieved, there is envisaged the inclusion of long-term unemployed persons with continuous registration with the Employment Office. The revitalisation of the site will be enhanced by organising a Festival of Roma culture and “open” history lessons.

The project implementation will result in the restoration of a cultural heritage site and its subsequent socialisation.
