Most tourists come to Targovishte City to visit its beautifully preserved old quarter, or Varosha. Old homes still stand here, as do the old, gold-spired Assumption Church and the town’s Historical Museum, charming visitors with their traditional mid-19th century National Revival architecture.
There are also healing mineral springs at the natural forest park (known simply as The Park) in the southern part of town.
