Charming historic town famous for the authentic architecture from the Bulgarian National Revival period of the 19-th century
This picturesque little town is one of the important centers of the heroic April Uprising against the Ottoman Empire in 1876 and is known for its authentic Bulgarian architecture and for its folk music festivals, making it a very popular tourist destination. Koprivshtitsa is one of the traditional Bulgarian towns, still preserving the authentic atmosphere of the Bulgarian National Revival period of the 19-th century. The town boasts a large number of architectural monuments from this period, 383 in all, most of which have been restored to their original appearance. Collections of ethnographic treasures, old weapons, National Revival works of art, fine fretwork, household weaves and embroidery, national costumes and typical Bulgarian jewelry are kept in several impressive house-museums that we visit on that tour.
