Directions to Kovachevitsa
Kovachevitsa is an architectural reserve located in the southwest of Bulgaria, some 220 km from Sofia and 22 km from Gotse Delchev. There is no direct public transport to Kovachevitsa - you can travel to Ognyanovo or Gotse Delchev and then hire or share a taxi. The reserve of Kovachevitsa represents a typical old Rhodope village architecture and includes the Sveti Nikola church, 2 schools, 112 houses and 5 outdoor constructions (such as barns and storage rooms). 56 of the buildings have been restored and renovated and the rest are preserved to a certain degree.
The general look is from the period of the National Revival, with stone laid narrow streets and beautiful 2 to 4 floors tall houses with high stone walls and quaint tiny courtyards. The Dishlyanova, Shumareva, Pilareva, Gyuzleva, Sarafova and Koyuvi houses are only few of the Kovachevitsa houses with unique architectural and artistic qualities which have attracted many tourists and film projects to the small Rhodope village.
The village of Kovachevitsa is a perfect destination for lovers of country and cultural tourism, a place where they can step back from the intense urban lifestyle, explore nature and old traditions, taste genuine local food and beverages. The area offers excellent options for hiking, trekking and sightseeing - the picturesque village of Leshten is only 8 km away, Ribnovo is nearby, and so are attractions such as Kozi Kamak.
