Panagyurishte is a town situated in a little valley in the Stara Planina mountains. It is located 90 km from Sofia. The name comes from Greek and means 'fair' or 'festival'. Panagyurishte is primarily known for its active participation in the April Uprising against the Ottoman domination in 1876. The town was then burnt down and almost totally destroyed. Panagyurishte has revived from the ashes and is nowadays a delightful provincial town, a popular tourism destination famous for its historical, cultural and ethnographic sights, mineral springs and rose-picking traditions.
Djudjevata Kushta is a restored old 19th c. house which features 6 well equipped double rooms and 2 apartments. They are all lavishly decorated with traditional colors and textiles.

A stone tiled yard, a beautiful lawn, a cool outside sitting area, an interesting BBQ oven, unique carved wood verandas and many more colourful accents and details attract the visitors and they fall in love with the place to come back again.
