Your Day in Koprivshtitsa and Topolnitsa Neolithic Village

We start this relaxed tour with a 2-hour scenic drive along the Balkan range - pastures, meadows, forests and small towns. Before noon we will visit 3 house-museums, where you will be let through the 19th century late Ottoman period and the Bulgarian Revival, preparation of the Revolution against the Turks and life of Bulgarian ordinary people. We will also see the beautiful church before we have lunch in some local tavern, if the weather permits we will sit outside. Some other museums we will see in the afternoon and then we start our journey back to Sofia. On the way back you will enrich your knowledge with a quick visit of Topolnitsa neolithic archaeological park near the scenic village of Chavdar. This remarkable park includes several houses rebuilt in the pre-historic style (7th millennium BC) and shows the life of people from this era. There is also a small archaeological museum with exhibition from the village of Chavdar. The view from the complex is astonishing with the surrounding mountains.

Koprivshtitsa overview

Koprivshtitsa (from the Bulgarian word kopriva, meaning "nettle") is a historic town in Sofia Province, central Bulgaria, lying on the Topolnitsa River among the Sredna Gora mountains. It was the heart of the April Uprising in 1876 and is known for its authentic Bulgarian architecture and for its folk music festivals. Koprivshtitsa is one of the charming historic Bulgarian towns, still preserving the atmosphere of the Bulgarian National Revival period of the 19th century. The town is huddled in the mountain folds 120 km east of Sofia. The town boasts 383 architectural monuments from the period, most of them restored to their original appearance. Collections of ethnographic treasures, old weapons, National Revival works of art, fine fretwork, household weaves and embroidery, national costumes and typical Bulgarian jewelry have also been preserved. It was here that the first shot of the April Uprising against the Ottoman Occupation was fired in 1876.
