Arbanassi is situated on a high rocky plateau only 5 km northeast from Veliko Tarnovo, which is connected to it by a well-marked and attractive eco-trail. There are beautiful views of the old town and the hills of Tsarevets and Trapezitsa, revealing from it. The village is an architectural museum-reserve, included in the 100 National Tourist Sites in Bulgaria and in the UNESCO list of world cultural heritage. It emerged as a settlement of Bulgarians, migrated from other parts of the country in the 15-16th century and it reached an economic boom and prosperity in the late 17th to the late 18th century as it became a centre of trade and crafts. At that time there were more than a thousand houses in the village and the main livelihood of the population was dzhelepchiystvoto (growing large flocks for trading with meat, dairy products and wool) and surovatchiistvoto (breeding livestock). Locals traded with the whole Ottoman Empire and other parts of Europe and even India and Persia. Crafts were thriving, such as goldsmith, copper production, and production of barrels, blacksmith and sericulture. In the late 18th century the village was attacked several times by the Kardzhalii who robbed and burnt it. Moreover, there was a plague and cholera which led to the degradation of the rich by this time Arbanassi. 144 houses have been preserved since the boom period - architectural monuments with richly decorated and carved ceilings and doors, carved shutters and decorative grilles, restored in an authentic form. They have the architecture of the Bulgarian fortified house, typical only for Arbanassi. Outside they looked firm, with small windows like loopholes and heavy gates with wrought iron, but inside everyone marveled at the rich carving and regulations of the house. Some of the most impressive house-monuments in Arbanasi are the Hadzhihristovata House, Konstantsalievata, Hadjiilievata, Kondilarovata, Hadzhipanayotovata and so on. The old fountains in the village are among the attractions - Kokonskata and Pazarskata. The five churches and two monasteries are a part of the unique cultural and historical wealth of Arbanassi as well. All of them have interesting murals and rich history. The oldest Church of the Nativity of Christ is the most richly decorated one in Arbanassi, built in the late 16th and early 17th century. It has unique and precisous murals, the Circle of Life being one of the rares and most impressive among them. The Assumption Monastery and St. Nicholas Monastery in Arbanassi were churches, but when the population number declined they remained at the end of the village and formed as monasteries. In 1794 the national leader Sophronius of Vratsa was ordained a monk in one of the Arbanassi's monasteries. The book "Life and Suffering of the Sinner Sofronii" was written in the village.
