The town of Klisura is surrounded by the Balkan range and Sredna Gora

The town of Klisura is situated in a valley, surrounded by the Balkan range and Sredna Gora. Its population is about 1700 people and it is located 105 km to the east of Sofia, 35 km west of Karlovo and 25 km northeast of Koprivshtitsa.
The name of Klisura has always been associated with the heroism of its habitants during the April Rebellion. The village was a center of the revolution and Borimechkata (the Man who struggles a bear) who lived in the village was one of its leaders.

The spirit of the rebels could be felt up to the present day. Places of main interest are the church "St. Nikolai", the Town`s Historical Museum, Chervenakovs house, Pavurdzievs house, Kozinarovs house, etc.

Klisura is the birth place of Hristo Danov- the founder of the first Bulgarian printing house in Plovdiv.

1,5 km away from Klisura is located a historical place called Zli dol (Evil glen) where tourists can find the Auto-tourist complex of the Union of the Bulgarian drivers. The complex includes 15 small houses with total of about 60 beds, a restaurant, a bar, a playground, tennis, volleyball and basketball courts, an equestrian place with superb horses and a guarded car park.

Klisura is a starting point for many itineraries to the National park "Central Balkan Mountain" and to two peaks- Vezhen in the Balkan Mountains and Bogdan in Sredna Gora. The town is easily accessible because of its location: it is only 1 km distant from the Fore- Balkan principal highway thoroughfare Sofia- Bourgas and it has two railway stations.
