Visit a Bulgarian town museum
One of my favorite towns in Bulgaria is Koprivshtitsa. Let me show it to you in a one day tour from Sofia.
Koprivshtitsa is famous for its beautiful old houses and cobblestone streets.
In this quiet Bulgarian town you will experience the atmosphere of the Bulgarian Revival. Koprivshtitsa has kept the Bulgarian culture, crafts and traditions in an authentic way. Furthermore, this is the birthplace of many Bulgarian writers and revolutionaries.
Some of the beautiful houses today are museums. While visiting the local museums, you will learn more about life in the past. Also we will see the local Bulgarian crafts and traditions. Some of them we still keep today.
In addition we could have an optional lunch at a local restaurant. I recommend that you taste some of the traditional Bulgarian meals with a local beer or a glass of wine.
The time is flexible if you want to have a longer time at some museum or at lunch.

We had a wonderful experience with Albena! We started our tour right on time. We traveled through a beautiful countryside to the traditional village hotel f Kopitareva vshtitsa. We learned a lot about the history and the importance of this area. We enjoyed every minute of it. Albena is very knowledgeable.
