... from Katerina in Get to know Bulgaria! Visits 149 14 August, 2022

The pretty Bulgarian village of Leshten has located about 15 km from the town of Gotse Delchev and 8 km from the city of Garmen. It is located in a very hilly area, nestled in the foothills of the Western Rhodopes, with a view of the Gotse Delchev Valley and the Pirin Mountains. The village attracts tourists with its restored, but with the preserved authentic look of Renaissance houses, which are suitable for rural tourism.

Saint Paraskeva Church is one of the main attractions in the village. It was built in 1836, with preserved old icons and an iconostasis. There is also a cell school.

Another attraction is the Clay House, which is built of clay, straw and wood. It has an "Ecohouse" certificate, designed for two people and if you are interested, you can stay in it.

Be sure to take a walk at sunset to the end of the village along the main road where there are benches with great views.

Walking along the cobblestone streets, you can also visit the Kavkova house and the gallery of the Bulgarian poet Boris Hristov and his wife - the artist Darina.
