LOCATION
Koprivshtitsa is located 1060 meters above sea level, on both sides of the Topolka river. The two highest peaks of the Sredna gora mountain soar not far from the town: Bogdan /1604 m/ and Bunaya /1594 m/. Koprivshtitsa is most conveniently accessed by car: if you travel from Sofia, it is 110 km along the scenic road, passing under the Balkan mountains; if you’re coming from Bourgas, the distance is 300 km; if your journey starts somewhere in the South of Bulgaria, via Plovdiv or Pazardzhik, the best route is through Panagyurishte and Strelcha. It is a longer journey if you’re coming from somewhere in the North of Bulgaria – in this case you’ll have to go through one of the Balkan mountains passes, or to go to Koprivshtitsa via Sofia.
