Koprivshtitsa is a very beautiful and pleasant town in Sredna Gora. It is crossed by the river of Topolnitsa and is located 110 km from Sofia and 90 km from Plovdiv. It is just 12 km from the Sub-Balkan road. During the Bulgarian National Revival Koprivshitsa was a center of education and culture not only in the region but for all Bulgarians. Lyuben Karavelov, Nayden Gerov and other national leaders were born here. There are many architectural monuments from that time in the face of remarkable churches and houses. In April 20, 1876 the April Uprising was announced in the town with the first shot of George Tihanek at "Kalachev Bridge" and Todor Kableshkov wrote his Bloody letter. In 1952 Koprivshtitsa was declared a town-museum and in the 70s of the 20th century a large-scale conservation of the cultural monuments was made, after which the town was declared an ethnographic and cultural reserve. Here, almost every house, street fountain and bridge carries the memory of the great personalities of the time. Architectural landmarks are the Cathedral Church of the Assumption of St. Mary, St. Nicholas Church, and the community centre of Hadzhi Nencho Palaveev, the School of St. Cyril and Methodius, the ossuary with the remains of the Koprivshtitsa people who died in the April Uprising, the bridge of Parva Pushka (First Shot), and the craft bazaar. Some of the most richly decorated houses are preserved - the Stariradeva House, the Pavlikyanska, Doganova, Mlachkova, Markova, Chalakova Houses and the visitors may see the museum houses Lyuben Karavelov, Dimcho Debelyanov, Todor Kableshkov, George Benkovski, Nencho Oslekov and Petko Liutov in the revival town. Besides the architectural and historical landmarks, the region around the Koprivshtitsa has a unique nature, too. There are 11 marked hiking trails following the footsteps of history, varying by difficulty. Tourists may enjoy the beautiful scenery along with exploration of the historic places. Some of the routes are: "Along the Road of the Blood Letter", "You are Beautiful, My Forest", "Along the Rebel Paths", "The Awaiting Mother", etc. One of the trails leads to the Bogdan Natural Reserve where the peak of Bogdan is situated. It is the highest peak in Sredna Gora towering at 1604 meters altitude. There are many hotels in Koprivshtitsa for the guests, as well as many guest houses that recreate the charming atmosphere of the Revival Koprivshtitsa house. They combine old-times interiors with modern amenities, and their lovely gardens are a real joy for the eye.
