Bratya Daskalovi (Bulgarian: Братя Даскалови, pronounced [ˈbratjə dəskəˈlɔvi]; also transliterated Bratja Daskalovi or Bratia Daskalovi) is a village in southern Bulgaria, part of Stara Zagora Province with a population of 750 inhabitants as of December 2009.[1] It is the administrative centre of the homonymous Bratya Daskalovi Municipality, which lies in the western part of Stara Zagora Province. It is located in the Upper Thracian Plain, the historical region of Thrace.

The village was administratively formed in 1956 through the merger of the villages of Grozdovo (until 1906 Burnusus, 1906-1947 Malko Borisovo) and Voynitsite (until 1906 Voynik Mahle), on the opposite banks of the Omurovo River. Its name means "Daskalovi Brothers" and it was named after the brothers Dimitar, Ivan and Nikola, participants in the September Uprising who were executed by firing squad by the authorities on 4 October 1923.


As of December 2017, the village of Bratya Daskalovi has a dwindling population of 579 people. Nearly all inhabitants are ethnic Bulgarians (97%), with a few Romani people. Most inhabitants belong to the Bulgarian Orthodox Church.
