gabrovo (Etara)

Near the town of Gabrovo are the gates of Etara, a living museum featuring a traditional craft marketplace. Step back in time as waterwheels power machinery used for woodcarving, pottery, weaving, and silversmithing, among others. Try a traditional apple pastry from the bakery or Turkish coffee brewed over hot sand while you watch the artisans at work and shop for unique handcrafted items.
