Much of the architecture of Koprivshtitsa belongs to the 19th century and it is of few
remaining towns with characteristic Bulgarian architecture. The city
took its place in history since this was the place where first shots
of the April Uprising of 1876 were fired.
Oslekov House (1853–1856), today an ethnographical museum
Monument in memory of those
who fought and died for Bulgarian liberation a mausoleum was erected to
house the bones of Bulgarian heroes. Large statue on the hill is visible
from some part of Koprivshtitsa. Another statue is barely visible, but
unique in many ways. A memorial to mothers and wives of those who left
and never returned from a battle with Turkish rule is one of its kind.
