Golden River, Oborishte, Bulgaria, Save the Earth!

1. The Oborishte Locality

The Oborishte locality is a historical place situated at 7 km to the north-west of the town of Panagyurishte, Bulgaria. It is located in the Sredna Gora mountains. In the spring of 1876 the First Great National Assembly took place there. A monument was erected on that place in 1923.

In the course of the preparation of the April Uprising against the Ottoman Empire the representatives of the Fourth Revolutionary District assembled in the forests around the district's headquarters Panagyurishte. The assembly was held between 14 and 16 April 1876. The number of the deputies is unknown varying according to different sources and studies from 49 to more than 350 from around 50 towns and villages. Headed by Georgi Benkovski the deputies declared the April Uprising.

2. Just down the **Monument of Oborishte is passing a small Golden River (named by me on this way!) that comes from Asarel Medet, which is an enormous copper extracting and processing factory located at 11 km to the northwest of the town of Panagyurishte in the Pazardzhik Province, Bulgaria. This small river lighted by the sun has one unbelievable gold color.

I was impressed by the brilliant color of the river and I spent some more time in one small bridge over the river making many picture of it, you see here. These are things that not happen every day in the life of one and when you got the right moment you should take it and enjoy the moment!

In the nearest city Panagiurishte in the Historical Museum you could see so called * Panagyurishte Treasure*, one very interesting treasure, which visited many countries on the world. A day I will show you something about it.

Look at my 4 pictures of Oborishte to see this place now!
