Lined by craft shops, and information areas. The bridge offers good selection of stores including art and leather works. Interesting place to visit.

It's a covered bridge with shops. There are two shops that create some beautiful hand-carved pieces. You can watch them work. The inside does not feel like a bridge.

If you are already in Lovech, stroll trough the Covered Bridge, but there is not much to do. There are many souvenirs shops, few cafes and tourist information center with a friendly staff. It is more interesting from outside.

We were on our way to Devetashka cave. We didn't really know what what was Lovech famous for, so we just stopped for lunch. It was such a nice surprise to see such a beautiful town. Will have to come back at some point.

Many of the shops on the covered bridge are no more than tourist shops, however there are 2 or 3 true craft shops that are worth stopping at. At the exit/entrance you walk down into a square with plenty of cafes/bars.

Stopped off in Lovech on drive from Sofia to Veliko Tărnovo. Not much to do at bridge, but nice enough for a stroll through.

The covered bridge is unique and worth a visit. There are too many stalls and little shops selling tourist gifts and silly paraphernalia. You can stop in the middle of the bridge, get a coffee and an ice cream and enjoy the view over the...More
