The hillside lift

Over the past few years over 7 million leva were invested into socialization, strengthening and partial restoration of the fortress. Two projects were implemented by the Ministry of Culture with expert assistance from the municipal administration.

The first project was Building a retaining wall, artistic lighting and tourism infrastructure for access to the historical reserve Trapezitsa in Veliko Tarnovo, worth 4.6 million leva. It included the installation of the inclined lift which departs from the historic railway station of Trapezitsa and reaches the south tower of the fortress. Also a Museum Centre was set up; it will host an exhibition with the archaeological findings from the medieval fortress. The second project was for socialization and partial restoration of the fortress (invested in the restoration of part of the northern wall, three medieval churches and the construction of the main tourist promenade); it was funded with a donation of 3  million leva by the Heydar Aliyev Foundation presided by Mehriban Alieva.
