Batak is a town in Southern Bulgaria. It is located in Pazardzhik Province and is close to the town of Peshtera.

This town relates to one of the most epic events in the history of Bulgaria. Practically the whole population of Batak took part in the April Uprising of 1876. The will of the Bulgarian people, the heroism and self-sacrifice in the name of freedom are most strongly expressed here. The people of Batak rebelled on 22 April under the leadership of the revolutionary committee with main voivoda Petar Goranov. On 30 April the settlement was surrounded by an Ottoman army of many thousands. The unequal and heroic battles were carried on for five days.

The last stronghold of the rebels was the Sveta Nedelia Church. Five thousand people were killed and the settlement was burned down to ashes. The world was horrified by the atrocities of the Ottoman oppressors and a powerful wave of protest in defense of Bulgarians arose. The Russian people were at the head of this movement of protest. On 20 January 1878 the people of Batak who had survived the uprising enthusiastically met the liberating Russian armies.

Today Batak is a renovated modern town famous for its historical monuments and a resort and tourist centre.
