A place where you can sit for a moment and enjoy how much pleasure you visit every landmark, be it natural or architectural.

We arrived holding our breath as this was the 5th destination of the day and when we saw how many stairs we had to climb to reach the goal we were a little dumbfounded but still each ladder was worth the effort .. When we climbed the fortress in front of us stretched an incredible panoramic a sight I love and thank every time I witnessed such an inspiring fairytale pleasure to enjoy everything around me
I was also impressed by how huge flags towering over the town of Peshtera where the fortress is located had an even greater effect, but the euphoria overwhelmed me.

The name of the Architectural Landmark, which has been preserved and restored to this day, comes from Greek and means "dove". It is a fortress with three belts of fortress walls and six defensive towers. They are located on the innermost fortress wall, according to archaeologists it dates back to the 5th century and existed at least until the 8th century inclusive. Experts believe that there was probably an ancient Thracian sanctuary in the same place. .. I do not know

These towers were not further rebuilt in the churches when Christianity was adopted, but in addition to their functional purpose, they also provided the spiritual protection of the fortress. In the towers, our soldiers, before going into battle, prayed and thanked God when they defeated the enemy. It strengthened their faith and prepared them for the battles ahead.
The patron saint of one of the two churches was undoubtedly St. Petka. The reason is the very name of the hill which most probably came from the church dedicated to St. Petka. And this is preserved in the people's memory through the centuries in our history and is preserved to this day where you can visit and feel the energy of this place.

Honestly, I was not so impressed by all these historical things that I saw and with which our ancestors wrote history, we have come to this day alive and well with a preserved fortress and nature and yet a country but in fact when I got in the car in which are all these ornaments I was quite amazed by the cage I saw that towered over the whole city of the whole mountain and the whole area was so stunning
