A competition defined the most beautiful and less popular tourism destinations

The villages Sitovo and Goleshevo and the monastery St. Petka near Tran won the competition for most beautiful but less popular place in Bulgaria.

The competition began in 2008, and an expert commission ranked the destinations by the end of last year. Short video presentations were made for each of the winners.

The village Sitovo is situated in the Rodopi and is famous with it’s ancient writings on the rocks, dating back to over 7000 years. The writings are not yet deciphered.

Goleshevo is near the city Sandanski. There are many natural wonders near the village. Goleshevo also hosts the museum of Yavorov, which desperately needs repair works.

The rock monastery St. Petka is situated inside a cave. According to legends, St. Petka hid there from her pursuers. The monastery preserves the marks from the palm and foot of the saint.
