Join a full-day private combo tour to two of the most beautiful towns in Bulgaria - Plovdiv and Koprivshitsa. The European Capital of Culture of 2019 is a must-see destination and the revival town of Koprivshitsa in not to be missed while in Bulgaria.

A 1.5-hour drive from Sofia will take you to the city of Plovdiv (the European Capital of Culture for 2019), Bulgaria’s second-largest city and one of its oldest towns. During a 3 hour walk of the city you will discover history and culture behind a 7000-year old settlement, written by the Roman, Byzantine, Ottoman, and Bulgarian civilizations.

You can enjoy sightseeing in the Old Town with its museums, historical monuments, revival period houses, lined with souvenir shops cobbled streets or be inspired by the rich Ethnographic Museum and the ancient Roman Theater. Feel the atmosphere of this artistic and trade center and enjoy a lunch at the local restaurants. The amusing mixture of traditions, culture, and architectural masterpieces are a must-see for every culture-hungry traveler.

Next, on your return journey stop at the charming town of Koprivshtitsa with its fascinating history and authentic 19th-century architecture. Spend the rest of the day leisurely exploring this small and picturesque city situated in central Bulgaria, spread amongst the slopes of Stara Planina Mountains.

Once the scene of battles for the liberation of Bulgaria, now the city is turned into a museum of the Revival Period of Bulgaria. Here you can visit the homes of some of the most eminent Bulgarians, writers and rebels, admire the vast collections of ethnographical treasures, including ancient weapons, intricate national costumes, and stunning jewelry.
