There are 27 district cities in Bulgaria which are not only administrative but also cultural centres. The district of Shumen is located in the north-eastern part of the country, while the city is the tenth biggest one in Bulgaria. It is easily accessible because of the Hemus Highway and the railway line from Sofia to Varna. Shumen is just at the foot of the Shumen Plateau which is one of the favourite places for local people and guests. Namely, on the plateau, you can find the area called Kyoshkovete. However, the fortress is the most known and visited. It had played an important role during the Second Bulgarian Kingdom. The plateau itself is a nature park today and people visit it for sport and tourism. Archeological work has shown that the region around Shumen had been inhabited since XII BC. Unquestionably, the most beautiful view to the city is from the Monument “The Creators of Bulgaria” which rises on the top of the hills above Shumen. One should not forget the closeness of Shumen to the popular historic monument “The Madara Rider”, as well as to two of the ancient capitals of Bulgaria – Pliska and Preslav. The cultural heritage, beautiful nature of the region and the short distance to the Black sea make Shumen visited throughout the year. Like in every other city, hotels predominate and you will hardly find a traditional guest house. Hotels are usually 3-star and are suitable for family breaks, business traveling or a conference tourism. Every hotel is distinguishable in style and facilities. It is easier to find a room or an apartment in the city centre than in the suburbs. If you would like to stay away from the urban noise, choose a hotel in the park area Kyoshkovete. Most of the hotels offer own restaurant or a tavern but there are also enough of them in the centre of Shumen. All hotels and accommodations work in every season but Shumen is most charming in the spring and summer months.
