According to the Japanese Association of Travel Agents (JATA), the Bulgarian town of Koprvishtitsa ranks among the thirty most beautiful towns in Europe.
The list of the Japanese association aims to promote tourism to attractive little places in Europe.
Koprvishtitsa is located near the Sredna Gora mountains, with the river Topolnitsa flowing through the town.
The town has an important place in Bulgarian history as it was the site of the outbreak of the 1876 April Uprising against the Ottoman Empire.
Although the revolt was unsuccessful and was suppressed by Ottoman authorities, it was succeeded by the Russo-Turkish war of 1877-1878 that led to the liberation of Bulgaria.
Nowadays Koprivshtitsa is known for its folklore music festivals and the fine examples of typical Bulgarian architecture featuring half-timbered buildings.
