Koprinka Dam is located very close to Kazanlak in the Valley of the Roses. The dam is built on the Tundzha river and is a great place for both fishing and water sports!
Koprinka Dam is another one of these hidden gems that we find in Bulgaria all the time! You see this incredible view from the road and go to investigate and then you find a beach (manmade of course) in the middle of the rose valley!
If you’re in central Bulgaria and looking for water sports this is perfect. I saw many people windsurfing on the dam and plenty of people just relaxing next to the water. I recommend combining the visit with a trip to the Rose Festival in Kazanlak.
If you want the great views that you can see in the photos then you will need to climb quite a lot of steps to reach the top of the dam but it’s definitely worth it! You can also see The Buzludzha Monument in the distance, another place that we have to visit soon!
