Sightseeing: Petrova Niva
Several kilometres north of the village of Stoilovo (the village is some 10 km away from the town of Malko Turnovo) near one of the curves of the Veleka River, is Petrova Niva - a sacred place for every Bulgarian; it is also known as Strandzha Oborishte. This is the place where the delegates of the Odrin Revolutionary District with leaders Georgi Kondolov, Mihail Gerdzhikov, Penyo Shivarov, etc. gathered and from 28th to 30th June, 1903 worked out the plan for the uprising. It broke on the Christian holiday of Preobrazhenie (Transfiguration) (19th August in the old calendar); so people know it as the Preobrazhenie Uprising. At Petrova Niva there is a big monument-channel house of Georgi Kondolov and a museum collection. Each year on 19th August national celebrations are held in memory of all that participated in the Preobrazhenie Uprising. There is a regular bus line to the village of Stoilovo only.
