Belogradchik Rocks


Belogradchik is a small city located in north-west Bulgaria, next to the Serbian border. The place is famous for its unique nature and especially for the Belogradchik rocks that are proclaimed as a Natural Landmark. 

Разположен в северозападна България, близо до сръбската граница. Белоградчик е известен с уникалната си природа и най-вече със скалите, които са обявени за природно богатсво. 



The rocks have interesting shapes and they look like different creatures. The one above is the "The Madonna". A legend says that in the past there used to be a monastery and a nunnery. There was an extremely beautiful young nun living there. She fell in love with Anton, a young shepherd. Their love was impossible, but soon she gave a birth to a child. As a result the nun was cursed and banished. Her lover, Anton wanted to save her on his horse, but that day a thunderstorm transformed her into a rock. The shepherd stayed there to wait her forever. 

Скалите имат интересни форми и приличат на различни създания. Тази горе е на Мадоната. Легендата разказва, че на това място е имало девически и мъжки манастир. В девическия живеело изключително красиво момиче. То се влюбило в Антон, млад овчар, но любовта им била невъзможна. Скоро след това в манастира пропищяло дете, в резултат на което монахинята била анатемосана и изгонена. Нейният любим Антон искал да я спаси на коня си, но в същия момент се разярила буря и монахинята била превърната в скала. Овчарят останал да чака любимата си завинаги.


The rocks are surrounded by a fortress, called "Kaleto'. It dates back from I - III century and it is one of the most preserved fortresses in Bulgaria, as well as a cultural monument of national importance.  

Скалите са заобиколени от крепостта Калето, датираща още от 1 - 3в. Това е най-запазената крепост в България от национално значение.

  1. This is the first time I've heard of the Belogradchik rocks and how they all so uniquely formed gives them such a presence and personality. I enjoyed the story about the rock called The Madonna as it gives you something to think about. It's a shame that the weather was a little gloomy but it doesn't take anything away from the spectacular sights. Thanks for sharing this with us Stanislava! Happy weekend to you!

  10. Ох, от доста време се каним да отидем там и все не успяваме. Ние с моя приятел сме родом от североизточна България и ни е сравнително близко да отидем, обаче така се получава, че там където ти е най-близко, най-трудно може да отидеш :)) Много хубави снимки, ноо да жалко за мрачното време. Ако беше слънчево определено щяха да са много по-свежи. Пожелавам ти хубава седмица.
