Gabrovo bets on creative tourism

Gabrovo (Bulgaria), bet on creative tourism to maintain its tourism activity throughout the summer season, by offering a wide choice of basketwork, sculpting, craft and gastronomy workshops, held in its 33 villages, perched on the slopes of the Balkans. The ideal place for relaxation, art residences for artists, and cultural encounters.  Handicrafts, traditions, humor, and satire, as well as modern art, are fundamental to the cultural life of Gabrovo and form an informed audience with a keen sensitivity.

Also rewarded Creative City of Crafts and Folk Art by UNESCO, Gabrovo is committed to developing and exchanging innovative practices to promote creative industries, strengthen participation in cultural life and integrate culture in sustainable urban development policies, which is how it relies on creative tourism.
