Kotel Town

Kotel Town

The town of Kotel is located in the foothills of The Eastern Balkans. Its population is about 5300 people. Archaeological finds in the Chobrata and Talim Tash sites reveal remains of Thracian cult complexes and rock tombs. The Thracians built many fortresses, which were later finished by the Bulgarian kings. Khan Krum destroyed the Byzantine army in 811 in the area of ​​Dimir kapia. Today's town was populated during the Turkish rule in the 15th century. Crafts such as weaving, carpet making, and tailoring were developed there. Sheep farming is now widely included. One of the pleasant places for a walk is the "Old Town" with its houses in Revival style and "Izvorite" park.
