Description

As we leave the bustling city behind, the landscape gradually transforms into rolling hills and verdant valleys, a prelude to the timeless charm awaiting us in Koprivshtica. Stepping into this well-preserved Bulgarian town feels like stepping back into the 19th century, as cobblestone streets wind their way past colorful Revival-era houses adorned with intricate wooden carvings. Our knowledgeable host/greater will lead us through Koprivshtica's cobblestone alleys, regaling us with tales of its revolutionary past and the pivotal role it played in Bulgaria's fight for independence. We'll visit iconic landmarks such as the Church of the Assumption, with its striking architecture and richly decorated interior, and the Oslekov House, a testament to the town's affluent merchant heritage. After immersing ourselves in Koprivshtica's history and charm, we'll continue our journey to the Starosel Thracian Cult Center, nestled amidst the picturesque landscapes of the Sredna Gora mountain range. This ancient sanctuary, dating back over 2,500 years, was once a focal point of Thracian religious rituals and ceremonies. Upon arrival, we'll be greeted by the awe-inspiring sight of the Thracian tomb complex, its massive stone structures standing as silent guardians of a bygone era. Our host/greater will unravel the mysteries of Thracian civilization, sharing insights into their beliefs, customs, and the significance of the elaborate tomb architecture. As we explore the site, we'll marvel at the intricate craftsmanship displayed in the stone carvings and artifacts unearthed from the ancient burial chambers. From the panoramic vantage points, we'll also soak in breathtaking views of the surrounding countryside, a reminder of the timeless bond between nature and human history. After a day filled with discovery and wonder, we'll conclude our tour with a leisurely drive back to Plovdiv, enriched by memories of Koprivshtica's romantic allure and the ancient mystique of the Starosel Thracian Cult Center. Join us on this unforgettable journey through Bulgaria's past, where every step unveils a new chapter in the story of civilization.
