The spring is the best season in Bulgaria (at least for me) and there are many public holidays at this period of the year. That why, me and my husband, we decided to visit the region where he grew up and to see his former house, the woods he played with his friends back at the days and to immerse ourselves in his childhood for a weekend. We combined the trip with a stay in the mountains at a country house with relatives of ours.
Koprivshtitsa is an emblematic place for the Bulgarian people because the town was the center of the Bulgarian Revival and the Liberation of the country from the Ottoman empire started there. The town is located in 1.5 hours drive from Sofia and as locals say ''The summer lasts only 3 days there; if you get drunk you might miss it''.
