remarkable achievements

of the Tarnovo Artistic School Painting of the Tarnovo Artistic School In the 13th and 14th centuries Bulgaria became a thriving cultural centre. The flowering of the Tarnovo school of art was related to the construction of palaces and churches, to literary activity in the royal court and the monasteries, and to the development of handicrafts. Remarkable achievements of this school have been preserved down to this day: the murals of the Boyars' houses in Trapezitsa and Saint Forty Martyrs Church (Holy Forty Martyrs Church, Veliko Tarnovo) in Veliko Tarnovo, the Boyana Church (1259) and the Rock-hewn Churches of Ivanovo. Book illuminations also developed, examples include the ''Manasses Chronicle'', the ''Tetraevangelia of Ivan Alexander'' and the ''Tomich Psalter''. Many relics of Orthodox (Eastern Orthodox Church) martyrs and saints were kept in the numerous churches in the capital Turnovo, which earned the capital the byname "second Constantinople". Most of the architectural monuments from that period include churches, monasteries and fortresses. The Bulgarians usually built small churches with short doors to show humbleness and homage to God. They were often richly decorated with blind niches, various geometrical patterns from bricks, stone cubes, ceramics; while from the inside they were painted with marvelous frescoes which from the 13th century began to draw away from the canon and became realistic. dateofbirth , ''Balduinova kula'') is a defensive tower located in the Bulgarian town of Veliko Tarnovo, in the southeast of the Tsarevets Fortress. terminus_b Varna (not constructed from Yablanitsa to Shumen, certain objects are under construction) cities Sofia, next to Botevgrad; Shumen, next to Varna (future: Pleven, Lovech, Veliko Tarnovo and Targovishte) established

monumental history

on his monumental ''History of the Bulgarian State in the Middle ages'' - a comprehensive study of the political history of the medieval Bulgarian state with long discussions of cultural and religious problems and meticulous analysis of broad source evidence. Zlatarski popularised historical research in the country and established contacts with major Russian and Western medievalists and Byzantinists like A. A. Vasiliev or Henri Grégoire. He was the chairman of the Fourth International Congress of Byzantine Studies in Sofia, 1934. The cult of the Forty Martyrs is widespread all over the East. The Churches of St. Sophia in Ohrid (modern-day Republic of Macedonia) and Kiev (Ukraine) contain their depictions, datable to the 11th and 12th centuries, respectively. A number of auxiliary chapels were dedicated to the Forty, and there are several instances when an entire temple (church building) is dedicated to them: for example Xiropotamou Monastery on Mount Athos and the 13th-century Holy Forty Martyrs Church (SS. Forty Martyrs Church), in Veliko Tarnovo, Bulgaria. * Valjevo, a town in Serbia * Veliko Tarnovo, a town in Bulgaria * Gabrovo, a town in Bulgaria thumb 200px Realistic fresco of St. Sava (Image:Der Heilige Sava von Serbien.jpg), painted during his lifetime. The Mileševa monastery was founded between 1234 and 1236 by Serbian King Vladislav. The monastery is situated in a valley of the Mileševa river, near Prijepolje. Mileševa is one of the most important Serbian sanctuaries and spiritual centers. In 1236, Vladislav moved the relics of his uncle Saint Sava from Trnovo (Veliko Tarnovo) in Bulgaria, where he died, to Mileševa. Some historians believe that the coronation of King Tvrtko I of Bosnia took place in Mileševa. In the fifteenth century, the monastery was the seat of the Metropolitanate of Dabar-Bosnia. In 1459, the Turks (Ottoman Empire) set the monastery on fire, but it was soon restored. In the first half of the sixteenth century, the first service books were illuminated in Mileševa. One of the oldest schools also existed in the monastery. In the middle of the century, during the time of Patriarch Makarije (Makarije Sokolović) (the Serbian Patriarchate (Serbian Orthodox Church) was restored in 1557), the monastery was thoroughly renovated. Its external narthex was built and painted, and probably cut through the wall between the narthex and the nave. In later times, after several Turkish demolitions, a new restoration was undertaken in 1863, when the church considerably changed in appearance. Mitso Asen became emperor of Bulgaria after the murder of his wife's cousin, Kaliman Asen II (Kaliman II of Bulgaria) in 1256. Although he acquired some support in the capital Tărnovo (Veliko Tarnovo) and in Preslav (Veliki Preslav), he was faced by the hostility of much of the provincial nobility. Following an obscure unsuccessful campaign against Theodore II Lascaris of the Empire of Nicaea, Mitso lost control even over the commoners. right 170px (Image:Elisaveta Bagriana.jpg) '''Elisaveta Bagryana''' ( , ''Balduinova kula'') is a defensive tower located in the Bulgarian town of Veliko Tarnovo, in the southeast of the Tsarevets Fortress. terminus_b Varna (not constructed from Yablanitsa to Shumen, certain objects are under construction) cities Sofia, next to Botevgrad; Shumen, next to Varna (future: Pleven, Lovech, Veliko Tarnovo and Targovishte) established
