A view of the impressive Tsarevets fortress and the Yantra River. To the far left of the complex stands the "Execution rock" where traitors were pushed to their death.

Famously, Patriarch Joachim was executed by the Tsar Theodore Svetoslav in the year 1300. The body was then left for the river to carry away.
