Getting There: Koprivshtitsa

Source: Sofia News Agency (
Published Date: 28 Feb 2005

Koprivshtitsa, one of the most charming small Bulgarian towns, is huddled in the mountain 111 km east of Sofia.

No other Bulgarian museum town boasts such a large number of houses and monuments - 383 in all, most of which have been restored to their original appearance. A unique collection of ethnographical treasures, old weapons, National Revival works of art, fine fretwork, house- hold weaves and embroidery, national costumes and typical Bulgarian jewelry have also been pre- served.

Specialists say that every house in Koprivshtitsa is a work of art.

The scenic landscape of Sredna Gora mountain range, with its vast forest regions and the up to 1600 meter-high peaks, offers a great variety of superb walking and hiking opportunities.
