Memorials Of The Culture In BERKOVITSA

Berkovitsa is a small town which is situated in the northwest flanks of the Balkan, 90 km away from the capital city of Bulgaria Sofia, by the road via the Petrohan passage.

This region was inhabited by men since hoary antiquity. On the historical maps Berkovitsa is marked as an old settlement and an inner town of the Bulgarian state.

In Berkovitsa you could rediscover one of the most beautiful corners of our native land, to have a walk in the century-old Beach and Chestnut forests, skiing or snowboarding on the tracks under peak Kom, prepare for himself jam from raspberries and blueberries, which you had collected by yourself and take away a portion of the fascination of this land incorporated in a small Ocarina or a “Dyavolska kana” (A Devilish jug), the pride of the Berkovitsa’s potters.

In the Mountain nearby the town there are many tourists routs and pathways leading to the peak Kom, peak Sdravchenitsa, the Sinya Vir site (the Blue Pool), Samarite, peak Shturkovitsa. Some of the traditional rest places near the town are the picturesque surroundings of the Haidoushki Vodopadi (The Haidouc Waterfalls). This is also the name of the newest pedestrian footpath.

There are few interesting things to see in Berkovitsa - The Clock Tower, “Ivan Vazov” House-Museum, Sarbinska House, “Birth Of The God Mother” Church, “St. Nikolai Chudotvorets” Church, Antique and Medieval Fortress “Kaleto”, “Krasteva” House.

Thank you very much Alejandro for your visit and nice comments. These cloths are not typical Bulgarian for all the Bulgarian population in the past. They are typical just for a small part of Bulgarian population which is called linguri. Linguri were and maybe still are pastors so they need warm cloths.

Greetings from Italy,
