Samovodska Charshiya Ethnographic Compound in Veliko Turnovo is a characteristic street of the 19th century handicrafts. Very impressive are the small craftsmen's workshops, located in restored houses of Revival Period and post-Liberation architecture. Alive to this day here are the traditions of the Bulgarian potters and master-makers of arms, of wood-carvers and icon-pain-
ters, of confectionery and bread makers. The contemporary masters, having acquired the fine details of the craft, joyfully and willingly show their skills, offering their output to the visitors of the compound. Having preserved the cheerful atmosphere of the Bulgarian National Revival, Samovodska Charshiya is among the most frequented places in the old capital city.
