    Don't buy anything to eat or drink in the vicinity of the entrance to the Tsaravets Fortress, they charge 3X the usual rates for everything.

    Unique Suggestions: Ask the price in advance and then decide if you *really* need to buy it...

    Fun Alternatives: There is no shade on the hill and it can get quite warm.
    Bring water and snacks with - it can get quite warm and water is recommended.

    I absolutely recommend when jumping in a taxi to try to communicate with the taxi driver. Having heard reports that all the taxi drivers are very fair (you can't say this in Eastern Europe) I tried it myself. Therefore:)

    One way from my hotel to Tsarevets fortress - 1.07 LEVA
    The return - 5 LEVA (after trying to go for 5 EURO)

    Unique Suggestions: Negotiate the fare first if he won't have a running meter. It's a must.
