"Bulgaria's Treasure Chest" Koprivshtitsa by Joya

Koprivshtitsa Travel Guide: 99 reviews and 292 photos

Not the oldest town in Bulgaria, Koprivshtitsa's documented history is limited to the late 1700's, although the town was probably founded in the 1300's by boylars and other refugees running from the invading Turks. By the end of the 18th century, Koprivshtitsa had grown to a populous and wealthy town with large herds of livestock. Considerable revenue was produced by the associated trade of animals and their products. A prosperous trading center with close ties to Venice, in Plovdiv it was referred to as "little Istanbul".
