St Peter And Paul Church gives a good insight into the history and culture of the old Bulgarian kingdoms. It remained the only big church in Tarnovo unharmed after the conquest of the Ottomans and served as the main church of the Tarnovo eparchy so it was very special and it remained undamaged right up to the big earthquake in the beginning of the 20th century. The façade is very much a result of restoration work, but the inner preserved frescoes are original from 14th century and later.
