Koprivshtitsa One Day Tour from Sofia

Culture and History tour in Sofia

Tour Price : 80 euro Duration : 7 hours Languages: English, French

If you love exploring the culture and traditions of the countries you visit, Koprivshtitsa is simply the optimal place to do so while in Sofia. This small town is located in about 100km from the capital, and is considered as the most altitudinal settlement in Bulgaria, since it sits at 1150m above sea level. It’s not a big town, but surely a remarkable one, because it houses a lot of buildings featuring the traditional decorative and architectural styles.

You will be surprised by the vibrancy of colors each house is painted with, as there are bright red, blue and green houses decorated with figured windows and eaves. Surrounded with picturesque mountainous landscapes, the town of Koprivshtitsa may seem like a settlement from a fairytale. However, in the past it was quite far from being a calm town that it is now. 

Koprivshtitsa was one of the centers of National Revival during the Ottoman rule, and also the spot for a violent uprising that was brutally oppressed by the Turkish army. The people of this town were very devoted to the national spirit and made everything possible to preserve the culture and traditions of their people. Today, Koprivshtitsa also serves as a rich cultural centre but with a less rebellious character.

You will be able to enjoy the traditional foods and drinks, and experience the hospitality of the locals who will tell you stories about this beautiful town. Each time I visit this place as a private guide in Sofia I’m very pleased to see how excited my clients are when we explore the town. So don’t miss your opportunity to get in close with traditional Bulgarian culture with this tour!
