Pavlikeni is located in the center of North Bulgaria, about 70 km from Pleven and 36 km from Veliko Tarnovo. There are traces of the prehistoric man found in the region, but the town hardly emerged in 1943 at the place of the village of Pavlikyan whose population professed the Paulician religion. An ancient ceramics centre is discovered near it where there are furnaces for construction and domestic pottery, as well as a Roman villa. It dated to the late first century. The over 50 furnaces found prove that here ceramic products were made not only for the needs of the population, but also with commercial purpose. The researcher of the centre Bogdan Sultov turned it into an open air museum and restored the entire process of production. Other antiquity artifacts may be seen in the Historical Museum of Pavlikeni. There are columns, tombstones, inscriptions exposed in the yard, as well as other objects found in this region. There is a unique exhibit in the Revival Section - a Perpetual calendar, created upon the idea of Father Matthew Preobrazhenski - Mitkaloto. There are also natural attractions in the area of Pavlikeni that attract lovers of hiking and ecotourism. The Troana Cave is attractive. It is situated in a highly wooded area, and it is interesting for its wealth of non-flowable cave formations. So far only 1500 metres are mapped.
