Terrain descriptionVeliko Tarnovo is rich of orienteering maps, especially for Sprint distance. Urban part - fast orienteering with very similar flats and areas, many passages and schools. Old part - Interesting old part of the city with many narrow streets, stairs and paths. Steep terrain makes the orienteering very interesting.
