Luvitsa’s Site

Kardjali Kirkovo nr Makaza Greek border pass - BULGARIA HEADING FOR KIRKOVO KARDJALI MAKAZA SOUTHERN BULGARIAN RHODOPE MOUNTAIN REGION a teeny bit of history of the Kardjali (Kardzhali) Region of southern Bulgaria Eastern Rhodopes and a very romantic wedding day! Kardjali is situated to the east of the Rhodope mountain range of southern Bulgaria. The huge and superb Arda River runs throo Kardjali and into the Kardjali town centre reservoirs including Studen Klanedets, a deep cold well of a reservoir! Kardjali artifacts discovered that people lived in Kardjali since the Neolithic period and still plenty of archaeological excavations, including Perperikon, the tomb at Tatul of Orpheus, the stone wedding and more recently finds near Momchilgrad near Kardjali town. There is a local museum of history, well worthy of a visit on your stay in the Kardjali or Haskovo region. Thracians settled here as one of the most advanced of civilisations found so far, building sacturaries for their gods and creating artificial caves too. Many castles of stone and palaces, such as Perperikon, are still awaiting discovery in the dense pine forests, hiding these treasures for all time. The great Byzantine times also appear among many undiscovered artifacts in the Kardjali region and the name Kardjali, which is spelt in many different ways (Kardzhali being one of them) was mentioned in Ottoman documents, after the Ottomans conquered Kardjali in the 14th century. Although Kardjali today is not very well positioned, due to all the roads south still being blocked off, Kardjali once was a prime position for trade being on the northern Greek border with Komotini, Kavala, Alexandropoli and close enough to Thessaloniki. 21st October marks the anniversary of its liberation by the Bulgarians in 1912. Since 1937 the 21st October has been heralded as a day of celebration.

My 1st Visit

MY FIRST VISIT TO BULGARIA! We landed at Sofia airport at 3am local Bulgarian time. I had organised to stay for the remainder of the night at the Brod hotel in central Sofia near the airport hotel view over one of the lakes of the Kardjali region. The Zarazen hotel was warm and welcoming and the Bulgarian food cooked there delicious! All the vegetables grown in the Bulgarian fertile soil, even the carrots tasted very different and extremely tasty. Most nights we ate different variations of chicken, and each chicken meal was full of taste and soft like butter. I highly recommend the hotel Zarazen if you are looking for a holiday in the Kardjali region. From Kardjali it is not far to the Greek border, although there are still Bulgarian border patrols stopping you to ask where you are going and they only speak Bulgarian. Luckily for us we were with a Bulgarian property estate agent the Greek border pass is soon to be fully open making the expats in Kardjali region a lovely place to stay for a very relaxing holiday in a totally unspoilt land. The centre of Kardjali was filled with old high rise blocks of apartments and of the Bulgarians who lived there for the work available. The countryside was full of abandoned derelect houses and forests of pine trees. There are many houses for sale now in Bulgaria. The Bulgarians couldn't do enough for us throughout our stay and I returned to the UK thrilled at how these people treated their animals with such care and devotion
