  April uprisal: karavelov
by ger4444

Favorite thing: Koprivshitsa is an important example of the national Revival in Bulgaria. This period ? sometimes called the Bulgaria renaissance ? was a period of socio-economic development and national integration of the country under the Turks. The period started in 1762 and ended in 1878 as Bulgaria was liberated from the Turks. The period can be caracterized by three things, namely the typical ninetheenth century architecture, the literature ? amongst which Botev and Vazov stand out ? and the April Uprisal. Changes in society, freedom in economic traffic and religious freedom led to the formation of the nation and the creation of its common territorium. (For charerectics of the architecture see my Bulgaria page: general tips)
