The Uzana (Bulgarian: Узана) is a winter resort in Bulgaria. It is located at the foot of Ispolin peak at 1,420 m above sea level, near the Bulgarka Nature Park in the Stara Planina.[1] It consists of large meadows surrounded by forest. The altitude varies from 1,220 to 1,350 m. The longest run is 4,265 ft /1,300 m. The nearest big city is Gabrovo, some 22 km away. Uzana is also the geographic center of Bulgaria.[2] The resort with its 15 hotels provides tourism opportunities throughout the year.

The surrounding sites of Uzana are suitable for spaleology, skiing,[1] and rock climbing. There are possibilities for cultural tourism in the region. In the nearby open-air ethnographic museum Etara people can learn more about Bulgarian crafts. The Sokolski Monastery is situated a few kilometers away from Uzana.[1]

Tourism in the Uzana region started in 1937 when the first chalet also named Uzana was built on the southern side of the meadow.

Uzana is a home of rare floral species included in the Red Book of Endangered Species.[1]

It is the starting position of many mountain routes as well as the summits Shipka and Buzludja.[1]
