Lonely Planet review

You can see Karlovo’s main sights by walking up ul Vasil Levski to pl 20 Yuli. Stop first at pl Vasil Levski, where the great man is immortalised in a grand statue depicting him with a lion (a reference to the adopted nickname of ‘lion’ given to him by his peers). Turn right, and right again, to the marvellous Sveta Bogoroditsa Church , a pink structure that contains intricate wooden iconostases.
