KOPRIVSHTITZA AND STAROSEL

The historical town of Koprivshtitza is amongst the 100 National Tourist Sights in Bulgaria. It is the only Architectural Historical Reserve in the country, which never closes doors during the entire year.

The town offers an authentic experience of the 18th and 19th century with its very well preserved buildings, roads and crafts from that epoch. Almost every house is turned into a museum, as it has been used to be the living quarters of great Bulgarian revolutionaries and poets.

It is exactly here where on the 20th of April 1876 the gunshot, that started the famous April Uprising was fired, thus sparking the Great Russian – Turkish war .

Starosel on the other hand brings us much further back in time, some 8 thousand years to be exact. Archeological discoveries point to active settlements in these lands some 6 thousand years B.C.

Many discoveries have been made in the region dating to different ages, but without any doubt the most recent and significant one is the Chetinyova Mogila – the largest ever found Thracian Tumulus and underground Mausoleum. It was discovered in the year 2000 by Bulgarian Archeologist Georgi Kitov.

A Thracian Cult Complex was built and today it makes up for a rare glimpse into the life and culture of the ancient Thracians. Around the village of Starosel there have been found 9 Thracian tumulus, all of them containing unique architectural features and frescos.

Experience the world of ancient Thracians and the live in pre-liberated Bulgaria an enriching cultural one day journey back in time.
