Fountain with 8 taps, built by Master Kolyu Ficheto in 1868

Fountains in Bulgaria, Save the Earth!

This picture was provoke by the topic in the Bulgarian forum ЧЕШМИТЕ в България /Fountains in Bulgaria/

Probably many of you don't know that in my native country you could find everywhere you travel in Bulgaria fountains with a good often rather cold fresh water that is very good for drinking. These places are also sometimes suitable to have a short rest and to have a lunch like this one.

It is one old tradition from the past times that people build these fountains in memory to somebody or something. Many of these places has his oven story and sometimes even legend.

In the picture here you see a big stone fountain with eight taps, built by Master Kolyu Ficheto in 1868. More about the Sokolsky Monastery behind you could see and read on the other my picture heremy picture here.

So don't hesitate to have a good fresh water everywhere on the street and paths in Bulgaria you stop!
