The town of Pravets is located at the foot of the Balkan Mountains approximately 60 km from the capital Sofia. In the outskirts there is a small lake used for fishing and recreation. Most Bulgarians associate the town with its (now closed) computer manufacturing plant and with the birthplace of Bulgaria's last communist president, Todor Zhivkov.
Today, the town is famous for its City University campus and two prestigious high schools. The town is surrounded by the beautiful hills and forests of the picturesque Stara Planina Mountain. Close to the town there is a large artificial lake. It has always been the emblem of the town and provides ample opportunities for water sports and fishing.
