Architectural-Historical Reserve Koprivshtitsa
In our Bulgaria there are places overflowing with miracles!
We have immeasurable natural riches – impregnable, propped up the sky, rocky peaks, clear silver rivers flowing through vast green plains, blue lakes reflecting the fluffy white clouds above them, dense forests covering the majestic mountain slopes, stormy waves crashing into golden fin soft sand created by a million colorful seashells, ancient golden treasures sculpted with grace by unknown hands, and all this makes my heart beat wildly and my eyes fill with tears of joy.
However, there is one place, one piece of our Bulgaria, which, like my handfuls is small, has gathered all its beauty in itself!
It is overflowing with history and this land has given birth to glorious Bulgarians!
The forests here are the most beautiful in the world, and the curved river has formed an incomparable picturesque valley. Like a silver string, it sings songs and tells legends with a cheerful voice.
This town keeps a turbulent history in its bosom, and at every step I find monuments of culture here.
