    If you walk uphill from Varosha for about 10 minutes you'll reach the ruins of the Hisarya Fortress. The foundations of the fortress date back to Roman times and in the 12th century the peace treaty between Bulgaria and Byzantium was signed here, leading to the creation of the second Bulgarian Empire. It was destroyed in the 15th century when Bulgaria fell under Turkish rule.
    The view from the fortress towards Lovech is excellent.

    I takes just a few minutes of climbing to get there. From the fortress you can enjoy nice views of the town, the river and the hills around it.
