Day 1: Around Bulgaria in 14 days


The first place we went to was Perperikon. For those of you who are unfamiliar, Perperikon is an early historical, ancient and medieval Bulgarian stone complex in the Eastern Rhodopes, consisting of a large megalithic sanctuary from the 6th – 5th millennium BC, monuments of antiquity and a medieval fortress. By the Thracians, Perperek is a sacred rock city, capital and fortress with a royal palace. You can read about our trip to Perperikon at the following link:

If you want to see some pictures from the destination, here are some of them:

Shiroka Polyana

After touring the sanctuary, we decided to try to reach the rope bridge to the village of Lisitsite. We hit the beam there, as did the bottom crust of the car, but that’s another story. In general, the road there was not very good. However, we passed through Shiroka Polyana Dam and stopped for some pictures:


In the late afternoon, we headed to where we were going to spend the night, namely the Carby House. We met the owner of the house, who turned out to be a very cool woman and directed us where to go and gave us a tour around the city. The weather wasn’t very good for photos, but I tried it anyway. I’ll have to go back to town to shoot it again.

By the end of the evening we were already tired of the long walk and after drinking a beer we quickly fell asleep.
