The beautiful village of Karash is situated 40 km away from Vratsa, at the foothills of the Balkan Mountains, below the heights of Koylovitsa and Chuklata, on the right bank of the Malak Iskar River. During the time of the National Liberation struggles in the village there was a revolutionary committee and it was often visited by Vasil Levski. The house, where he used to stay, is gone now, but there is a commemorating sign. Near Karash one may see the remains of the medieval fortress of Krivgrad, where there were discovered Roman and Byzantine coins, carved stones, monuments, nave basilica with small objects and altars dedicated to Hera and the Olympic gods and so on. The fortress used to guard the road running past it. The picturesque location in the mountain, the valley of the Malak Iskar and the cultural heritage make Karash an interesting tourist site. A part of the heritage of the village is the church of St. Nicholas, whose white steeple is visible from afar. It was built after a decree of Sultan Abdul Azis and it was consecrated in 1863, and its bell was cast in the village. The icons, fine stairs and curtains paid in gold are of great artistic value. In recent years eco and rural tourism has been developed in the village and several guest houses in Karash and chalets offer accommodation to visitors not only the country, but also from abroad. Here one may enjoy the authentic rural life, pick fruits and vegetables directly from the garden of a house, learn to cook local dishes, learn the beekeeping trade and try honey just removed from the comb, oversee the production process of cheese, milk a goat or cow, etc. There is an opportunity for the tourists to have walks along the eco-trail that runs along the river and reaches the hut of Gorskata Feya where there is a beautiful view and then continues to the Chekotinski Monastery of St. Archangel Michael.
