The town of Botev - Kalofer - is located in the southern part of Stara Planina, 56 km away from Plovdiv and 164 km from Sofia. According to the legend Kalofer emerged when a chieftain named Kalifer and his group settled at these places. They attacked a passing Turkish caravans and the Sultan, after failing to deal with him, was forced to allow the rebels to settle down if they'd stop attacking caravans. Later with the years the town enlarged and enriched and because of that it was called Altin Kalofer which means Golden Kalofer. There are museums in the town that tell not only regional but also national history. The National Museum of Hristo Botev includes a memorial house-museum, an exhibition hall, a monument of Hristo Botev and a monument of Ivanka Boteva - the mother of the poet. The atmosphere, in which the family lived, may be seen in the house, and there are personal belongings in the showroom, as well as documents and others. Another landmark is the School of Daskal Botev, one of the first in Bulgaria from the Revival period. Here reproductions are made and visitors can feel the atmosphere of that time. The third museum is the Kalofer House of History which is an ethnographic centre and presents local and traditional weaving rugs, clothing and festival costumes. There are several Eastern Orthodox churches in Kalofer, but the male and female monasteries of Kalofer are the most important. The town is located in the Central Balkan National Park and the highest peak in the Balkan Mountains - Botev Peak is in its territory, as well as the Raiskoto Praskalo Waterfall, which is the highest one in Bulgaria. There are beech forests growing in the park, as well as deep canyons, waterfalls and spacious pastures. One of the largest reserves in Bulgaria is situated here - the Dzhendema Biosphere Reserve. Kalofer is one of the most picturesque places in Bulgaria and its surroundings provide opportunities for recreation and there is a possibility for picnics in the summer on the banks of the two rivers - Tundzjaa and Byala Reka. The fresh air and the climate here attract people with respiratory problems, and for hikers there is the Byala Reka Eco-Trail which is a part of the same name complex, including a children's centre and a camp for survival in nature. There are routes to the Rai Hut and Botev Peak. Equestrian tourism is also developed in Kalofer and it is organized by different routes. The town and surrounding area provide a good choice of accommodation. A big plus is that there are no big hotel complexes and so the charm of the town and the beauty of nature are unaffected. The Kalofer hotels are mainly family ones. Many guest houses are also available to tourists that recreate the original atmosphere of the revival city. There are a lot of huts near Kalofer for the lovers of trekking.
