Apriltsi is a picturesque resort town in Stara planina, located close to Troyan in the Lovech region. It is settled in the so called Novo Selo valley between the Ostreshka and Vidima rivers, at the foothills of peak Botev - the highest in Stara planina. Together with the nearby peak Maragidik, they form one of the most memorable landscapes of Apriltsi, which is by far the most photographed place around the town. These lands have been inhabited by Thracians and Romans, therefore there are several mounds and tombs nearby. One of the remains of the Roman times is the ancient road that used to connect Misia and Thrace. Today this path is a splendid route for walking and trekking. The present town is established from refugees from the region of Tarnovo after Bulgaria fell under Ottoman rule. Soon after the village was ransacked by robbers, most of its inhabitants were killed and the houses were burnt down. Some managed to flee and hide in the mountain. When all things settle down, they came back and re-established the village again calling it Enikyoy - New Village (Novo Selo). During the Bulgarian Revival period Apriltsi became a major crafts center. The economic burst of the town and the free-spirit of the local people predestined Novo Selo as one of the centers of the April Uprising in 1876. A 100 years later, in 1976, the village is at the core of the formation of the present town by merging four villages: Novo Selo, Zla Reka, Vidima and Ostrets. The new town was named after the April Uprising and the local people who took part in it. The splendid location of the town and its rich history make it an ideal place for mountain, eco, rural and cultural-historic tourism in Stara planina. One of the most interesting places to visit in Apriltsi is the museum exhibition in the House-monument of the Novo Selo Uprising. Because of the 130th anniversary of the uprising on one of the hills around Apriltsi was risen a 34-meter tall cross, impressive in its size and symbolic meaning. Some of the religious attractions in the town include the St George and St Paraskeva churches as well as the St Holy Trinity Monastery for girls.
