The town of Koprivshtitsa is located some 110 km south-east of Sofia. It is a 2-hour transfer along a road, which passes via small valleys and traces the southern foothills of the Balkan Mountains. Probably, the best way to understand the roots of the Bulgarian Renaissance Period is to learn more about Koprivshitsa's 19th houses with their colorful courtyards, surrounded by high stone walls and gates. The disorderly built curved and narrow cobblestone little streets and plots and the numerous stone fountains contribute to the attractiveness of the little town. Many of these houses are turned into museums, but each one has its own identity, which corresponds to the main business and the size of the family of its owner. Another place of interest is the church "The Assumption of the Virgin" and the "Mausoleum - Ossuary - 20th April" devoted to those who died during the April Uprising. On the way back to Sofia, you will travel through a different route, which will go through the valley of Strelcha, famous for its rose oil-yielding rose bushes, exceptionally picturesque during May and June.
