    This is a typical itinerary for this product

    Stop At: Oslekov's House, H. Nencho Palaveev 39, Koprivshtitsa, Bulgaria, Koprivshtitsa 2077 Bulgaria

    With its triple-arched entrance and interior restored in shades from scarlet to sapphire blue, Oslekov House is arguably the most beautifully restored example of Bulgarian National Revival–period architecture in Koprivshtitsa. It was built between 1853 and 1856 by a rich merchant who was executed after his arrest during the 1876 April Uprising. Now a house-museum, it features informative, multilingual displays (Bulgarian, English and French) about 19th-century Bulgaria.

    Duration: 45 minutes

    Stop At: Todor Kableshkov House Museum, Todor Kableshkov Street 8, Koprivshtitsa 2077 Bulgaria

    The house where the author of the “blood letter” was born in 1851 is a model of the Bulgarian architecture in the period of the National Revival. It was build in 1845 by Koprivshtiza master-builder Gencho Mladenov. The beauty of the house comes from its symmetrical design, elegant shape and spacious second-floor saloon with tall glazed windows. Its ceilings, doors, and cupboards are covered in skilful wood-carvings.

    Duration: 40 minutes

    Stop At: Lyutov House Museum, Belovezhdov Street 2, Koprivshtitsa 2077 Bulgaria

    Ljutov’s House is an impressive example of the architecture of the period at its best. It was build in 1854 for the wealthy citizen of Korprivshtiza Stefan Topalov by Plovdiv master-buildings. It has richly painted walls and beautiful wood-curved ceilings. In 1906 the house was sold to the local merchant Petko Lyutov from where its name derives. The ground floor holds a display of “plasti” – handmade colorful covers made from wool used as floor covers and comfortable thick bedcovers. The plasti were made by special rolling and pressing methods and were colored with natural dyes.

    Duration: 45 minutes

    Stop At: Georgi Benkovski House Museum, Georgi Benkovski Street 5, Koprivshtitsa 2077 Bulgaria

    In 1843, a pretty wooden house perched on one of Koprivshtiza’s hills and surrounded by green trees and motley flowers witnessed the birth of one Gavril Hlatev. In Bulgarian history he will always be remembered as Gerogi Benkovski – a pseudonym he adopted as an organizer and leader of the April Uprising.

    A majestic monument of Georgi Benkovski has been erected near his house, impressive in terms of size and architecture. The design and construction of the monument are work of the architect P. Tatatov and the sculptor H. Tanev.

    The sculpture represents Georgi Benkovski mounted on a horse, galloping towards his dream. The monument is situated on a beautiful glade framed by a dense pine forest – a location which affords an excellent view of the whole town in its unique, out of this world beauty
