Kalofer has a very good location and interesting history. It is situated in Stara Planina mountains, and there are many hiking trails to choose from. Kalofer is very close to the Central Balkan National Park - one of the most beautiful nature parks in Bulgaria.
My best tips is DON'T TRUST the bus timetable located in the main square, or you'll have to wait hours. The town is small, quiet and pleasant and is a starting point for hikes to Rai Hut (Хижа Рай), Botev Peak (Ботев връх, 2376m) and a nice eco-trail along the White River. The four restaurants I tried were all excellent and cheap. As in every place I have seen in Bulgaria so far, all the roads just outside the town, as well as the river bed, are an endless sea of plastic trash. The railway station is 2km out of town, they say there are buses connecting the town center and the train station but I have never seen any, especially at the times written on the timetable.
Kalofer is a cozy small town, really close to the mountain! Perfect for mountain walks, picnics and nature exploring. There are two Bulgarian history museums in the centre for those who like history and museum exploring. Kalofer is really close to two of the most famous mountain trails in Bulgaria - the path to mountain hut Rai and Botev peak. From here with a car you can reach the beginnings of every mountain trails in Central Balkan national park. During the walks we’ve saw many mountain moto bikers, so probably the route was good for that as well.
Kalofer is a small town with few attractions (a museum, a statue at the top of a series of steps), but has a number of really good restaurants, hiking trails into the nearby hills and is a good stopover for someone who wants to for awhile get off the main cities everyone else goes to.
It's a small village with a few restaurants around the square, dominated by the massive monument to Hristo Botev. While there is not a lot to do in the village itself, it is a good base from which to explore the surrounding park, especially Botev Peak.There is also a monastery and some old churches to see. We stayed for 2 nights which was enough to see all there is to see and exhaust the dining options.
If you are into history - the Botev house and museum are a must. Unfortunately, there is not much beyond that worth mentioning. The mayor needs to do a better job reviving the place with EU money, instead the square feels frozen in time from former communist times, not much landscaping to speak of, the central area seems almost barren. On the positive side the Women's monastery is definitely worth the trip and the Kalofer house ( a small and unassuming tavern) surprised us with the freshness of the home cooked meals and the friendly staff.
