One of the prettiest villages in the Balkan Mountains - Ichera is located about 23 km from Sliven, in the Sliven part of the mountain and the river of Luda Kamchia runs through it. The name of the village comes from the medieval fortress of Sikera that was located here. According to old legends king Simeon I donated the village to his best boyar and often visited it for hunting. Therefore, at that time, Ichera was also called the 'royal chamber'. Today the village has preserved the memory of the past. It is a peaceful place, with picturesque scenery and good conditions for vacation. The houses from the Revival period in Ichera are remarkable. Like the houses in the nearby Zheravna, these are built of wood, with large verandahs and spacious rooms, located so as to be sunny all day. The Ichera houses are characterized by a spacious and well-ordered garden, hidden behind a large wall with heavy gates. In recent years, some houses have been restored and function as guest houses and family hotels in Ichera. The pride of the village is the Church of Saint Demetrius, built in 1842, where one may see priceless icons, frescoes and carvings, as well as the Monument in honor of the volunteers and soldiers who took part in the Russo-Turkish war, the national unification and the World War II. Ichera is surrounded by forests and sunny meadows with flowers, herbs and mushrooms. The air is crisp and clean, allowing pleasant walks and picnics in the countryside and the roads are suitable for biking. Beside the river of Luda Kamchia, its three tributaries are flowing around the village. They are much visited by fishermen and crabs hunters. From Ichera one may make trips to Elena, Gabrovo, Dryanovo or Bozhentsi. The charming Zheravna, which is an architectural reserve, is also nearby. In Kotel tourists may visit the Museum of the Kotel Revolutionaries. In the area of Karandila part of the Sinite Kamani area near Sliven, there are conditions for skiing, sports, hikes, and those who like extreme adventures may benefit from the paragliding track.
