Revolutionary history and a picturesque old town make Karlovo, nestled in the foothills of the Stara Planina, an edifying stop. Roughly equidistant from Koprivshtitsa and Kazanlâk, Karlovo's National Revival–era architecture and churches are sumptuous and well preserved. Significantly for the many Bulgarian visitors filing through, the town is venerated as the birthplace of Vasil Levski, leader of the revolution against the Turks in the early 1870s.
