We were on our way to Devetashka cave. We didn't really know what what was Lovech famous for, so we just stopped for lunch. It was such a nice surprise to see such a beautiful town. Will have to come back at some point.

Many of the shops on the covered bridge are no more than tourist shops, however there are 2 or 3 true craft shops that are worth stopping at. At the exit/entrance you walk down into a square with plenty of cafes/bars.

Stopped off in Lovech on drive from Sofia to Veliko Tărnovo. Not much to do at bridge, but nice enough for a stroll through.

A beautiful covered bridge, with small shops inside. Definitely it worths a visit. I was a bit disappointed by the winter ornaments hanging at the entrance on the bridge and altering its beauty.

Not bad, but nothing that interesting to see. A bridge with a roof and a bunch of souvenir shops. Give it a go

You get a beautiful view of the old Baroque houses the river and the fortress. Have a coffee at the coffee shop with white jam. There are many little souvenir shops. Most don't offer anything different from your average souvenir, but there are a few...More
