Unique architecture

The district of Lovech lies in the central part of Bulgaria. Two thirds of its territory are hills and mountains. Nature has been extremely generous to this region which is a cross point of the Balkan range and the Danube plain. In the region there are 8 preservation areas and protected territories. There lies the bigger part of the enormous national park "Tsentralen Balkan" (Central Balkan Range). The preserves "Steneto", "Boatin" and "Tsarichina" are UNESCO monuments.

The Lovech district is one of the territories most ardently keeping the national traditions. Of interest for the Bulgarian and foreign tourists are the one and only in Bulgaria Museum of Traditional Arts, as well as the unique national Fair of Arts and Crafts in the village Oreshak, the Lovech Historical Museum and the Levski Museum. Among the 684 monuments of culture are the Troyan and the Glozhene Monasteries, the architectural preservation area "Varosha" in Lovech ( one of the biggest and most carefully preserved in Bulgaria ), the magnificent "Pokritia most " ( the Covered Bridge ), over the river Ossam, the unique in Balkans, designed by the mason master Kolyo Ficheto. The rivers and the dam lakes are wonderful resting spots.
