Gabrovo is famous with the artisan citizens. The city is a member of the UNESCO creative cities network since 2017 - City of crafts and folk art. The presence of the Technical University - Gabrovo, in parallel with the future creation of one of the largest areas in Bulgaria for the development of computer technology and IT sector, made us focus on developing processes, events and networks for detention of the youth in Gabrovo.
