This traditional tavern or mehana in Bulgarian is situated in the very centre of Koprivshtitsa - at the 20th April Square. The name of the mehana and the main square are taken from the sacred date of 20th April 1976 when started the so called April uprising of the Bulgarians against the Ottoman yoke. The tavern has 50 seats inside and 50 seats in its summer garden and offers not a very long list of traditional and very tasty dishes and alcohol/non-alcoholic drinks. The atmosphere is nice - they tried to make it authentic, but it's a little bit of touristic though. The waitress was more than kind and fast. The prices are average - for a lunch of 4 adult people and 2 kids we paid around 50 BGN or 25 EUR. You can pay there by cash or by the major credit/debit cards. If you sit in the summer garden right in front of the mehana you will have a nice view at the town centre. There is something like a parking nearby where you could park your car, but I guess that it could be an issue if there are more people willing to visit the central square of the town where there are also shops, other small taverns and the tourist office from where you could get a ticket for 6 museums with a discount.

Favorite Dish: Their soups, but my favourite is the beans soup with home-made nadenitsa (grilled sausage)
