Chiprovtsi is set at the foot of the Western Stara Planina mountain, at 30 km from the town of Montana. The town was a goldsmith center in the 16th and 17th centuries and later became famous with its carpet industry.
The unique Chiprovtsi carpets are made on hand from pure wool and are still very popular.
