The Geographic centre of Bulgaria is located in the Uzana area, situated about 22 km south of Gabrovo. The measurements defining the centre were made in 1993through 6 different mathematic methods, because the surface of Bulgaria is not an ideal geometric figure to find the intersection. In 1991 there was put a sign which marks the centre of the country`s territory. The sign represents a pyramid with plumb, decorated in the colours of the national flag. The sign is piece of work of Peter Hadzhiginev a sculptor born in Gabrovo.
The Geographic centre was inaugurated inDecember 1991 by the president of Republic Bulgaria by that time – Dr.ZhelioZhelev. Since 2008 the centre is included into the National Tourist Movement “100 Tourist Sites of Bulgaria” by number 19, along with Architectural-ethnographic complex “Etar”, National Museum of Education and Museum “House of humour and satire”.
