The “Veliki Preslav” Historical-Archaeological Reserve, including the mediaeval capital of Bulgaria Preslav, as well as the Archaeological Museum are located 20 km from the town of Shumen. Preslav was the capital of the Bulgarian state from 893 to 971.
Historical-archaeological reserve “Shumenska Fortress”, also known as “Old Town”, rises 3 km west of the modern city of Shumen. In the V-II centuries BC the Thracians built the first fortified settlements. In the II-IV century period, it functioned as a dominant fortress guarding important Roman roads. In the 5th–6th centuries, it was a Byzantine stronghold, guarding the approaches to Stara planina. In the late Middle Ages (XII–XIV centuries), the Shumen fortress became one of the most important urban centres of the Second Bulgarian Kingdom.
This is the prototype of the town of Targovishte. It dates from the period of early Byzantine and mediaeval Bulgarian history (IV-VI, IX-X, XII-XIV c). It is located in the town of Parka, 7 km southwest of the town of Targovishte. The findings from the studies of the town of Misionis are shown in the permanent Archaeological Exhibition of the Regional History Museum – Targovishte.
