Commentary in English
Spend a day visiting this famed Bulgarian town deep in the Sredna Gora mountain range. The town's authentic Bulgarian architecture and folk music festivals make it a very popular tourist destination. Amble down its charming cobbled streets and visit stunning churches and homes.
Perhaps the best way to learn about Bulgaria's Renaissance period is by exploring some of the 250 types of Revival-period architecture, with colorful courtyards and higgledy-piggledy cobbled streets making up the town center. Your guide provides the historic context of the town, which has become a museum in itself.
Explore the mausoleum, located in the town's central square. Learn about the significance of this memoriam to those killed during the 1876 April Uprising. Continue on to see the charming home of local merchant Nencho Oslekov—its ornate façade giving a glimpse into the daily lives of well-off Bulgarian families during the 1850s–1900s. Finally, pay a visit to the homes of poet Dimcho Debelyanov, the Karavelov family, and revolutionary leaders that called this town their home.
