This very small village (it is not even a town in Bulgaria) is amazing. Just walking around the alleyways you will feel the magnetic energy from this place. The best part is that, if you are choosing to go on winter ski holiday in Bulgaria it is very close to Sofia. It is like only 2-3 hours with car… So go there and see this village before dive in the great Ski holiday.

This place is very cool because it kind transferring you into 1876, when all Bulgarian population is fighting the Ottoman (Turkey) rulers… In this small very authentic house the patriots and the rebels were plaing the rebellion against the Ottoman Empire. Unfortunately this rebel was a disaster and a lot of people die trying to free the Bulgarian country.

This village has a lot of history – the houses, the people, the story, the artwork and so on… see it.
