Bojentsi is a village situated on the north flanks in the central parts
of the Stara Planina mountain range at the altitude of 750 meters. Its architecture
is typical for the Bulgarian Renaissance.
The small number of houses lie on both banks of the Bojanka river, which takes
its source not far away from the village. According to the legend, the village
was founded by a noble-woman, whose name was Bojana, who found shelter in the
mountains after Veliko Tarnovo was conquered by the Ottoman Turks in 1393.
Stock-breeding, different handicrafts and trade were the basic means of livelihood
in the village. During the Bulgarian Renaissance it changed its architectural
appearance. The hilly relief let the constructors of the settlement create a
picturesque architectural exterior, dating back to the National Revival period.
High stone walls, oak doors, tiny cobblestone-paved lanes, stone fountains and
bridges create the incredible atmosphere of the place.
