Dear visitors, the landmarks and the tourist sites in this place are found in the area around it. Some of them are a bit outlying, others - closer, but if you are interested - they can be visited for a day time maximum. Each one of these destinations deserve our attention. To each one of the objects we have linked the possibilities for tourism.
Unique Ethnographic Area Complex - ZLATOGRAD (EAC)
e biggest modern landmark Zlatograd municipality.
The idea of creation was carried out by the owner of the company BULTEX Ltd. - Prof. Alexander Mitushev which provides the necessary material resources and organization.
It was Bulgaria's first (and so far - only!) Areal private ethnographic complex.
The complex is opened with the cooperation of the Municipality of Zlatograd May 24, 2001 - the festive day dedicated to Bulgarian culture, education and the Slavonic alphabet.
Numerous sites, some of which have been reconstructed with the help of PHARE and SAPARD programs reveal and reflect the natural and geographical characteristics and the wealth of the millennial history of Zlatograd ethnocultural area, and above all - of Zlatograd and settlements in the municipality. Its uniqueness is determined by:
· Dynamic presentation of the museum exhibition and demonstration of traditional skill
· Innovation exhibition approach to craftsmanship
· Beautiful objects in buildings - architectural monuments included in the architectural reserve (the largest cities in the Rhodope Mountains!), Which is inhabited year round by its owners.
The main trend in the development of EAC is to increase the number of sites, the enrichment of the content and quality of services. Its structure includes: I. Cultural and historical objects; II. Accommodation; III. Restaurants for food and entertainment, where there are opportunities to apply approaches of tourist attraction and animation. In 2004, the EAC is on the list of the 100 national tourist sites in Bulgaria. In early 2006, was named "best unique ethnographic complex in Bulgaria in 2005. EAC has the ability through its numerous sites to offer its guests both types of tourist services - (accommodation, meals and transportation) and auxiliary / additional combined in a variety of packages (and multi-day).
Ever Zlatograd Belovidovo was called - because of its dazzling white houses. More precisely, the name of the village there is hardly! Whitewashed walls are that surround all the old-fashioned houses have white walls and rooms.
The white houses are perched former Belovidovo Pripetzite around the two rivers - large and small, to be collected and placed early Varbitsa river.
During Ottoman rule Zlatograd called gift-rip - a name of unknown etymological origin. Dar-er "means" just "and" close. "Closely can not be because Zlatograd is built on the only place widely across the valley, and just here is unknown. According to other theories of Dar er rip comes by Der-and-Daare, translated as "door of the water of abundance." A knows that Zlatograd populated along the two rivers. When did you first become this settlement is known. But during excavations made in the areas Choynevi meadows and fields Dzherahovi is revealed medieval necropolis of X - XII century by the early Christian era. On the other hand, an ancient burial found to be against Mount St. Sunday is clearly Thracian. In addition to its skeleton and a horse's head, were found fibulas maroniyski and coins from before 2000 years. Archaeological and historical monuments show that this region was inhabited by Thracians, Slavs and Bulgarians. In the region there are traces of old settlement - the ruins of churches, fortresses, roads, bridges.
After liberation from Ottoman rule, the city received its present name - Zlatograd. Green gold - tobacco, deposits of lead and zinc ore, clear water and clean mountain air are godfathers of this location.
Zlatograd is a village with a rich culture and history. You can visit many churches, monasteries and Christian cemeteries, indicating that these lands lived mainly Bulgarian population.
The first monastery school was the beginning of educational - educational work in the Rhodope Mountains is located in Zlatograd. Here is the open and the oldest written record of the Rhodopes Revival - Zlatograd pismovnik (dating from 1852.), Which has no analogue among its open now Renaissance literature in Bulgaria. Here is the oldest church in the Rhodopes "Assumption - built in 1834, according to legend, for 40 nights.
Characteristic appearance of the town gives the architectural reserve. In it the National Institute of Cultural Monuments are registered over 100 architectural monuments of culture. For Bulgarian ethnographers, historians and linguists Zlatograd is a hub of the oldest traditions of material culture and lifestyle of our people. Buildings in the reserve is distinguished by its white walls around the courtyards, the open bed, soft white chimneys, with wide oak doors. There are elements of Plovdiv and Ksantiiski type. In the yards of most houses have wells, surrounded by oak baskets with "tricks of the trade" to the rope and eaves of ednoulucheni tiles. In the old part of town is the Renaissance Ensemble, which is cooled only picture from that time and now his houses stacks of smoke, and its rooms are filled with noise and Rhodope song. In architectural reserve has built Areal Ethnographic Complex, which is an exposition "live". It is located in one of the neighborhoods of Zlatograd, known as its "Old Town" - streets with few habitable houses in traditional architectural style. Some of them are turned in nice cafes and restaurants. If you get tired, walking on the picturesque streets, you can try some delicious dishes to the sound of melodies played by a guide and to drink a glass or two of aromatic coffee Zlatograd sand. recipe is still a family secret but his taste is unparalleled.
Many interesting workshops, presenting traditional crafts. Year round, in authentic and appropriate interior reproduce live all activities related to primary processing of wool, hair and cotton, the spinning, knitting, weaving - with vertical and horizontal loom (including mutafchiistvo), homespun, braiding and tailoring, cutlery, and the production of Rhodope and drinks Zlatograd.
In the reserve you can see the sewing machine and more than 100 years, and clearly show you how to forge medieval swords. Logging in cutlery workshop master must give you a blue bead - talismanche a souvenir. Zlatograd is the only place to produce goat horn - it is attached to the master specially designed wooden handle
Watermill is one of the most attractive sites, including three facilities - nap, fuller and mill-karadzheyka.
In 1871 a second church built in Zlatograd Sv.vmchk George the Victorious. " In the yard it is conceived and Bulgarian secular school. In his trademark building houses the museum 'education in the Middle Rhodopes. In the building - a monument of culture also lies and Museum of Communications.
Outstanding interest are the church - fortress monastery on Mount Nedelya, located 8 km northwest of Zlatograd where among oak forest is built eponymous chapel and ancillary buildings to it. Chapel of St. Athanasius is situated on a hill near the town. From this it appeared almost all Zlatograd. In 2006 the chapel was restored St. Konstantin and Elena "at the very Bulgarian-Greek border, the restitution and Chapel St. Ilia". All are built on the peaks surrounding Zlatograd in place of destroyed monasteries. Their natural position formed the so-called "Cross-Forest". And to this day believe that they protect the city.
Sacral area "Cross Forest (covering the territory of Zlatograd), probably from a time of pagan shrines, later converted into a Christian cult places. Worship of the Sun comes from antiquity. Later it was transformed into the image of Jesus Christ - Creator of the World and Sun. Faith in the miraculous power of the Christian cross is permanently reflected in Zlatograd - four of the highest peaks surrounding it had pagan temples converted later into a Christian cult places. These are: St. Sunday "(with an existing chapel), Kostadin St., St. Athanasius (an existing chapel) and St. Catherine or Mount St. George. Imaginary line joining the opposite vertices form a kind of cross. That is why the local population as a whole area of the cross "Cross Forest. I still believe that Zlatograd been and will be saved from evil - thanks to its location in the sacral area.
In the heart of the mountains, near the southern border with Greece, has beautiful town nestled Zlatograd. His greatest pride, along with ancient history and majestic scenery, is the ethnographic complex Areal Zlatograd. It is unique and unique because that is the result solely of private initiative.
The idea of creation was carried out with the capital of a private company in 2001 and even today it remains privately owned. Such is the complex Ether to Gabrovo, but Zlatograd is located in the heart of the city and access is easy and quick. And here one can easily lose connection with reality and immerse in past ages, and to stand for hours to observe the skill of craftsmen.
The complex best start by examining the historical and ethnographic exhibition, which will give you a complete picture of the past of the region and the peculiarities of the local lifestyle. Thus prepared, you can continue walking around the shops of local craftsmen.
Each master will be happy to meet you, you will pay special attention and will answer all your questions. Some lucky ones can leave with gift or free. You may be looking closely at all the workshops - the craftsmen will not stop you to see every detail of their workplace.
