Kosovo is a village in Plovdiv Province, Bulgaria.


Kosovo is located in Rhodope Mountains, in their central part, five kilometers away from a spa. It is surrounded with untouched nature, with four rivers flowing through it. It could be easily reached from cities of Asenovgrad (30 km), Pamporovo (36 km), Plovdiv (50 km) and Sofia (197 km).


Kosovo was settled in the 17th century by settlers from Staro selo[disambiguation needed] near the White Church monastery. Its pinnacle was in the late 19th century, and houses from this age still remain today. In the 20th century the village enters a decline.


Kosovo has typical Rhodope architecture. It has 63 cultural monuments, of which five have national significance. Most known is the Church of Ascension from 1851. The village has its own ethnographic museum.
