Thracian rock sanctuary near the village of Nebeska

... from Katerina in Get to know Bulgaria! Visits 2017 26 October, 2020

This is not the first time we visit the ancient rock sanctuary near the village of Nebeska and it will certainly not be the last. The place is magical and with an amazing view that will charge you with a lot of positive energy.

Village of Nebeska is located in Chernoochene municipality, Kardzhali district. To get there, on the road Asenovgrad - Kardzhali, from the village of Komuniga you have to stop on the road to the village of Bezvodno. The road is nice and the views are amazing. There are no signposts, but Google Maps can successfully take you to your destination. The first village you will reach is Zhenda, where you have to turn left on the first street to reach the village of Nebeska. There is about a kilometer of dirt road. At the beginning of the village there is a lot of space where you can park. From there you can see the incredible rock formations. The walk to them is light and relatively short. We walked to all the rocks and looked carefully at the rock carvings. Among them you can recognize stone mushrooms, animal figures, faces and the characteristic of the Eastern Rhodopes trapezoidal rock niches, whose purpose remains a mystery. According to one theory, the urns of burnt ordinary people are stored there. Another hypothesis is that they represent the entrance of the human soul to the afterlife.

We spent about two hours there and had a picnic in the pine grove above the rocks.
