Panagyurishte Town

Panagyurishte Town

The town of Panagyurishte is located in central Bulgaria, Sredna Gora, at an altitude of 540 meters. The population of the town is about 17,500 people. There are many Thracian mounds in the surroundings. The Panagyurishte treasure dating back from IV-III century BC was discovered in the Merul area. The treasure was found by the Deykovs brothers - Pavel, Petko and Mihail. In the nineteenth century crafts such as livestock trading, homespun tailoring, making of articles from animal fur, leather processing, shoemaking and goldsmithing developed in the town. Panagyurishte is one of the revolutionary centers of Bulgaria. In 1870 Vasil Levski founded here a revolutionary committee. The town is one of the most important contributors to the April Uprising. Panagyurishte was burnt down and completely destroyed after the suppression of the uprising.
