The town of Apriltsi is a municipal economic, cultural and administrative centre. It
stretches out for 12 km along the Vidima and the Ostreshka rivers.
The climate is moderate continental, with typical mild winter and cool
summer. The combination of crisp air, sweeping woods and absence of
industrial plants makes possible a year-round recreation and tourism in this
attractive town tucked away in a sunny valley in the mountain. Apriltsi has an ancient history. Several
mounds testify to the past existence of a Thracian settlement. Still
discernable are the remains of an ancient sanctuary on the top of Ostrets.
An old road linking the lands along the Danube to those south of the
mountain used to cut through the Balkan Range mountain here.
