My exciting November tour in south-west Bulgaria was really nice and I strongly recommend it! What I actually have visited?
I was traveling from my living city Sofia to Rupite. This is the region where the famous prophetess Baba Vanga has been living. People say the region is magical. It is under an inactive volcano. Baba Vanga’s life has changed here because of the energy around.
Baba Vanga’s home
One day she falls into a storm. Really bad storm! After that storm, Baba Vanga is blind and starts seeing the energy of the people and their fortune.
Many books describe her life and her sayings for the Bulgarian future, for Europe, for the World! Most of the recently happened worldwide events were predicted by her. For example the Muslim wave in Europe!
Baba Vanga is unique and she has helped many people to have better lives.
Being at her home, I expected to feel this strong energy! But I could only feel the sadness of the place. In fact, as a prophetess, Baba Vanga has had a really sad life. Can you imagine if you could know what will happen in your life! Everything! I think this is the worst curse.
In Rupite, the home of Baba Vanga, people are going to pray for health, for a better future, for help. It is a really magical place in fact. The belief of the people is everywhere!
After spending about an hour and a half, the next destination is Melnik. Melnik is the smallest city in Bulgaria, famous for its wines and architecture. It the past, the city was one of the main trading centers. The trade was carried out with camels. Clothes, food, wine, spices and many more have been subjects of the active trade between Melnik and Europe. Today visiting the city can be a moment of pleasure. Wine tasting, good traditional food, and SPA are among the choices what to do in Melnik.

After tasting of wine and a walk around the city, our next destination is Rozhen Monastery.
3. Rozhen Monastery
One of the oldest in Bulgaria, nice green areas, wooden furniture, and calmness.
And the last stop – Sandanski!
4. Sandanski city
We used the chance to visit the city and to spend 2 amazing days inPirin Park Hotel. The SPA during the cold months is my favorite entertainment. It brings health and tonus in your life! Check my review of the hotel.

Barcelona has been amazing from the very first touch. We were landing and it was sunset time. The beautiful panoramic view from my plane window prepared me for one exciting week in Barcelona! Can’t wait to share with you!
The food, the music, the street dance, bikes around me, the breeze, the whole spirit is something I fell in love with! But let’s start from the beginning.
We used Airbnbto reserve our apartment Habitat Apartments. It is suitable for 2 couples/ 4 people. It is close to the city center and close to some of the most popular Gaudi’s houses. The restaurants around are one of the bests.
Smart Tip 1: It is much better to be outside of the city center during your stay. You can walk to the central areas. The reason is the main street is not the best choice to eat and to rest.
Smart Tip 2: If you use Airbnb, check what is the cleaning fee and the fee if you arrive later than the arranged hour – sometimes these fees can be unexpectedly huge.
Smart Tip 3: Plan in advance what you will visit during your stay in Barcelona! The city is so charming, there are plenty of architectural and historical places, some of them are far away from each other. Organizing what you will see during the day, will save your time and energy and you will have an enjoyable experience!
Not to be missed. Sharing my list 🙂
1. Casa Batlló and La Pedrera
Casa Battlló can be seen from the outside, there are benches you can sit on and admire the building just in front of it. Inside, there is no furniture and taking into consideration all the entrances you’ll pay during the next days, you can save money from this entrance. Of course, it is up to you and Gaudi is always charming, no matter which masterpiece you are visiting.

La Pedrera is one of my favorite attractions. They have one of the best audioguides. It’s like you are in a fairy tale. The house is one of a kind and the symbolism is everywhere. You will see the four vital elements as parts of the house and many more… I strongly recommend this house to be visited even the entrance is 20 EUR. I will write my fairy tale in La Pedrera in a separate post soon! The house is so vital and inspiring!

2. The main street Las Ramblas and the most famous market La Boqueria
The main street is full of tourists, emotions, different languages and offers unexpectedly little streets you can take to escape from the crowd. In the past, it has been a flowing river here and that’s why you can notice the waves on the mosaic of Las Ramblas (representing the water element). The market La Boqueria is on Las Ramblas. Only Sunday is not working day for it. There you can find yourself exploding because of the delicious food you have tasted.
Patatas Bravas, Paellas, Gazpacho, Jamon Iberico, Calamari and seafood, Tortilla Espanola, Crema Catalana, Chorizo, and much more typical Spanish delicacy will make your day one of the best! The wines, of course, are the cherry on the cake! Saludos! Cheers!
3. All Squares has their own charm. Gotic Quarter. Columbus Monument.
Columbus monuments have to be observed by all 4 sides as the figures are quite nice. If you decide to go on the top of it, the panoramic view well worth it. The monument is on the first line of the sea. Another option is to enjoy this view from a cable car, which I did.
Smart Tip 4: Las Ramblas, La Boqueria, and The Columbus monument plus some nice squares around (The biggest Square is Plaza Catalunya at the beginning of Las Ramblas) can be good combination on your planning list as they are close to each other and basically you will follow the main street and will reach the seaside where is the Monument at the end.
4. Biking on the seaside + Ciutadella Park and Monument
Actually, this was one of the best choices we’ve been taken. Amazing way to discover the whole seaside, to refresh yourself, to visit the sightseeing around and to do some sport before the next portion of TAPAS and WINES. I truly enjoy this biking tour that we’ve organized for ourselves. I felt like Shakira who actually did her clip of “Loca Loca” song on the main seaside street. In the city center, you can easily rent bikes. It is cheap and saves your time.
The Aquarium is on the seaside as well and it is quite nice!
Smart Tip 5: If you don’t have much time to spend in Barcelona, definitely this is the way how you should explore the city.
5. Sagrada Familia – Gaudi’s masterpiece!
Definitely, a must on your list. It is a symbol of the city, one of the most significant works of Gaudi. La Sagrada Familia has been building for many years and it is expected in 2021 to be finished. It represents an amazing symbolism and an unbelievable architecture. Gaudi has been a genius!
At Nativity Tower
At Nativity Tower – going on the ground floor
Smart Tip 6: Book your ticket in advance to skip the queue. Saving slot for a certain hour of entering the building will give you 15 minutes to walk around and then you will need to follow your second slot on the ticket for one of the 2 Towers. Don’t be late for this second slot! After observing the Tower, you will have time to walk around the whole Basilica.
NB:The hours after lunchtime are better because the sunlight is going inside the Cathedral in a unique way! The photos will be better as well if taken during this time.
Smart Tip 7: When booking your ticket for Sagrada Familia, you will be requested to choose which of the 2 Towers you want to visit – the Passion or Nativity Tower. The choice is yours. The Passion tower is the new one, built after the Gaudi’s dead. It is without much ornamentation. The Nativity Tower is the older tower and the ornaments and symbolism are everywhere. Both towers are quite nice, but you need to choose one of them. There are no tickets that include both.
Sagrada Familia’s ceiling
Smart Tip 8: Take an audio guide for Sagrada Familia. Definitely worth it! Otherwise, you will skip most of the little details which are so interesting and hide history behind.
6. Park Guell
Nice park with lots of opportunities for fun, walks and relax. Nice alleys and you can spend 2 or more hours walking here. There is only one paid part of Park Guell, where you can see the famous mosaic of Gaudi and the famous Gaudi’s lizard.
Smart Tip 9: To be honest, you can save around 17 EUR for this paid part if you plan to visit other Gaudi’s things like houses, Sagrada Familia. Because this paid part is nothing really distinctive from his work done at La Pedrera or Sagrada Familia for example. It is nice of course and totally your choice.
7. Camp Nou
If you are a big football fan, then it totally worths to visit Camp Nou. For all the rest, the entrance is expensive – around 30 EUR and you can save some money for tapas and wines.
8. Olympic Park and Montjuic Castle
The Olympic Park will be more interesting for people who like sports. Montjuic Castle is more related to local history. It is with nice architecture and beautiful view. Olympic Park and Montjuic Castle are close to each and should be considered to be visited together.
The Olympic Fire Place
9. Tibidabo – the translation of the name means
” I am giving to you”,
taken from The Bible. It represents the episode where the evil enchants.
Tibidabo is a hill with a beautiful church and an amusement park. The perfect place if you are with kids. In the church, you can see one of theBlack Madonnas. There are 400-500 Black Madonnas in Europe depending on how they are classified.
What I missed was the Montserrat tour but I heard it is hot! Next time I am there and if you have time, don’t miss it!
This seems like the end of my Barsa experience. For now! I will definitely visit this city again! Maybe next summer!

There are many places in Bulgaria which can make you feel small. Assen’s Fortress is stunning! Vertiginous! The Historical Assen’s Fortress rises on a lonely marble rock above the Asenovgrad – Smolyan road.
Assen’s Fortress is a symbol of Rodopi mountain. It is part of the Golden Bulgarian Period when Bulgaria was on 3 seas – Black Sea; Ionian Sea; Aegean Sea. One of the most powerful Bulgarian kings – Tsar Ivan Asen II left entire historical epoch, to which everyone who decided to take a tour of Assen’s Fortress will inevitably be touched.
Assen’s Fortress will give you a clear idea of the medieval defensive system and the construction peculiarities of the fortification facilities. This Bulgarian proud is a must to see when traveling to Bulgaria and visiting Rodopi mountain!
I had a great extraordinary “visit” there. I was so happy to welcome our friends who were getting married! I am the Maid of Honor and the Best Man is my boyfriend.
The Bulgarian tradition states that the Best Man and the Maid of Honor welcome all guests of the wedding and together with the groom start the great adventure “Bulgarian wedding”. They should go and “steal” the bride.
We arranged to welcome all guests at Assen’s Fortress! It was an amazing experience. We were dressed in traditional Bulgarian clothes as a surprise.
The traditions keep the spirit of each culture alive!
At this very special day. Dressed in this beautiful traditional dress. At this massive Fortress. With so much Bulgarian spirit in the air. I felt so proud! Proud to be Bulgarian!
It’s been a great weekend spent in the nature of Mineralni bani village (region Haskovo, Bulgaria) and I am going to share more about it. With pleasure! The spring shows its beauty on every step, the views are just breathtaking… the green warm of the forest gently touches your senses…
I experienced an amazing ATV adventure with Мото Катерици/ Moto Squirrels(click on the name for Facebook). I got so much adrenaline and these guys from Moto Squirrels showed me so amazing paths in the forest. The start: Горно Брястово/ Gorno Bryastovo (in Minerlni bani village). My very first impression at the start: peak Garvanica, or called by the locals the hill “horn” because of its shape. It is an old Thracian terrain close to Mineralni bani village. The hill keeps secrets from the past and the human touch is stamped in the stones. Can be notices even nowadays.
Before I even realize what is about to happen I am on the whirl of a cool Kawasaki Brute Force 300 (2018) and the route is unbelievable! I feel the off-road passion in my blood and the wind blows my hair about . All the stress is gone with the wind. I feel so relaxed and I truly enjoy the moment! Moto Squirrels gave me professional equipment and I feel comfortable with it and at the same time protected. The equipment protects the upper body, back, arms, shoulders; I have helmet and glasses, and the mud splashes are not a problem at all.
The route starts a little extremely and we cross a mountain river. Then we speed up and I can feel the power of the ATV machine. WoW! The road is wonderful, green, mud splashes, emotions, birds’ songs, incredible views, sun. We pass a green lake with beautiful tree in front. We have stops for relaxing, taking pictures and just enjoying the nature. Then we pass the area called Юртите/ Yurtite. There is а stone fountain with fresh water. Later on the road, I got the courage to switch with my boyfriend and to take the ride. I push the throttle gently and the joy is in my blood. Off-road emotion! Our guide was super cool and the whole experience was really exciting!
We are on the way back, a little tired and with big smiles. These two hours adventure were awesome! Special thanks to Moto Squirrels and our guide. We promised to ourselves to come again for a ride.
We had a delicious dinner in a local restourant in Mineralni bani village and suddenly we fell asleep. Amazing weekend in Mineralni bani ( Haskovo).
If you are passionate about off-road adventures and want to get some adrenaline emotions, to discover new places and enjoy the beauty of the Rodopi mountain – I strongly recommend you ATV adventure with Moto Squirrels.
Special thanks to Мото Катерици and to the spring because it’s so beautiful!
За мен е удоволствие да споделя един невероятен уикенд сред природата на Хасковските Минерални бани! Тук пролетта разлиства красоти на всяка крачка и погледът се спира на безброй места… докато неусетно зелената топлина на гората нежно ме прегръща…
Изживях невероятно двучасово АТВ приключение с Мото Катерици (кликни на името за Facebook), които ми вдигнаха адреналина и ме преведоха през невероятен маршрут. Стартът: Горно Брястово, Минерални бани. Отсреща се намира връх Гарваница, хълмът рогче, който е стара тракийска местност в Минерални бани. Този хълм пази тайни от минали времена и човешката намеса по камъните се е запечатала и до днес.
Докато се усетя съм понесена от страхотно АТВ Kawasaki Brute Force 300 (2018 година) и маршрутът е невероятен! Изпитвам силни офроуд емоции и вятърът разпилява косите ми и отнася натрупания стрес и умора. Чувствам се лека и истински се забавлявам. Да вдигнеш адреналина всъщност е толкова релаксиращо! Мото Катерици ни предоставиха страхотна професионална екипировка, с която се чувствахме сигурни и спокойни! Екипировката изцяло предпазва горната част на тялото, гърба, ръцете, раменете; имаме каски и очила и пръските кал не са никакъв пролем!
Маршрутът ни започва екстремно и преминаваме местност с приятен наклон. След това пресичаме рекичка и се озоваваме на път, където може да увеличим скоростта и да усетим мощта на АТВ-то! WoW! Пътят е прекрасен, зелен, с пръски кал, емоции, песен на птички и невероятни гледки. Минаваме язовирче с красиво дърво отпред, разцъфнало от пролетна прегръдка. Правим паузи и почивки и снимаме, за да запечатаме тези адреналинови емоции. Стигаме до местността “Юртите” и правим освежаваща пауза. Наблизо има каменна чешма и може да се разхладим. Продължаваме разходката с АТВ и пътят е равен. Досега се возех, но вече имам куража и да се разменя и да покарам АТВ-то. Натискам леко газта и удоволствието веднага ме изпълва. Офроуд емоции! Водачът ни беше супер и беше предвидил спирки, където ни предложи да се разменим и да покарам и аз. Толкова е вълнуващо!
Връщаме се приятно изморени от това двучасово изживяване и благодарим на нашия водач за страхотната АТВ разходка. Обещаваме си да повторим скоро!
След като хапнахме и пооспокоихме страстите, се оказа, че сме се изморили доста и заслужено поспахме! Невероятен уикенд в Хасковските Минерални бани!
Ако искате и вие да вдигнете адреналина, да съчетаете разходка до ново място, да се освежите из Родопи планина – горещо препоръчвам АТВ разходката, която ние направихме! Благодарим на екипа Мото Катерици и на пролетта за красотата в гората!
In the Central Rodopi mountain, there is a small village called Levochevo. When entering the village there is a sign “Welcome in a piece of Paradise”. We are driving slowly in a really tiny road between some cows. It smells of the village and the beautiful nature prepares you for gorgeous views.
I am making jokes that this is the “Bulgarian Tivoli” ( Tivoli is an Italian cute city) because it really has these small cobblestone streets and the food is so delicious. Every house keeps the old traditional look and at the same time the modern way of living. The oldest houses dated from 1876. Some of the houses have names – traditional Bulgarian names. It is so nice to see how the Bulgarian spirit has been kept for years here in Levochevo, in the heart of Rodopi mountain.
The biggest Festival in Levochevo is during the traditional Bulgarian celebration of “Илинден”. During this Festival the whole village is on the main square and everyone is dancing the Bulgarian traditional dance horo.
The views are simply fantastic as the village Levochevo is on a high hill and when you look down you see a big part of Rodopi mountain, many different shades of green color! It is so relaxing, there is no rush and you are infected by this calmness immediately.
Chepelare – my favorite choice for skiing resort in Bulgaria, is around 14 km away from Levochevo town. The trip to both destinations Chepelare and Levochevo can be combined. Chepelare is an amazing winter destination in Bulgaria. The ski slopes are long, wide and beautiful. There are slopes for everyone – from amateurs to professionals. The Rodopi mountain loves all her guests and shows its majesty every day.
The traditional food of Rodopi mountain is something you can’t resist. Definitely try “пататник“, “родопски клин“, “марудници“, “качамак“, “агнешко чеверме“, “салата от смилянски фасул“, “телешко“, Bulgarian yogurt (кисело мляко), “сарми“, “къпана баница“. This just the begining of a legendary kitchen!
Enjoy skiing, enjoy Bulgaria, enjoy Rodopi mountain, enjoy the incredible food and yes – the winter is blessing season!
I have been living in Sofia, the capital of Bulgaria, for 7 years and I love the rhythm of this dynamic city. My hometown is Mineralni Bani, Haskovo city region. A small village in the beautiful South Bulgaria where all people are warm and smiley. My home is here, my parents live here, many of my dreams start here. Here everyone and every place give me love and support.
I love being here, in Mineralni Bani, for the weekend. It is so relaxing and the nature is so beautiful. I love the old village houses, the smell of my hometown is amazing! When I am here, I always get 2 kilos because the food is incredibly delicious and I overeat with pleasure. Our house is a big courtyard where my mum takes care of bio vegetables and fruits. We have wooden barbeque and green areas. My favorite is the cherry tree in front of the house!
Village Mineralni bani is an autonomous municipality. The sport and folklore are very well developed here. The men’s football team and the women’s handball team glorify the small resort village. I have been training handball for 12 years in my teenage years here.
The national resort village of Mineralni Bani welcomes you.
You can visit the site of Mineralni Bani here. There are many tourists and many of them use the healing water of the mineral springs. The mineral water is unique with its composition. There are 14 gushing springs in the resort Mineralni Bani.

There are many nice hotels, family houses, and rooms where the tourists of the village can enjoy the relaxing and authentic energy of Mineralni Bani. They can enjoy the delicious homemade food. The hotels have full spa packages, indoor and outdoor pools. The outdoor pools are an amazing experience during the winter when the snow is around the pool but you are sitting in the hot mineral water enjoying the snowflakes on your cheeks.
In the small resort center, there is a public bath with mineral water at really affordable prices. You can check the priceshere.
The nature of my hometown Mineralni bani is typical for the East Rodopi mountain. The highest peak is Aida – a great place for a walk and relax. The forest welcomes you to explore Rodopi mountain.
The Thracians have lived here and stamped the region with their traditions and energy. The local people know the old traditions.
The Romans have lived also here and there is a Roman Fortress “Holy Spirit” as a heritage.

Bulgaria has been established in 681. An old country with history and traditions. Situated on the Balkans and part of Europe. It is an amazing country for a trip because of its beautiful nature. Impressive mountains, The Black Sea beaches, the spirit of the Old Bulgarian traditions, the deliciousfood, the home-made wine and the traditional alcoholic drink rakiya – these are just a few things everyone can really enjoy in Bulgaria. There are really cheap offers for flights to Sofia, the capital of Bulgaria, so no matter of the season it is totally worth it to visit this small but extremely charming country!
Our trip starts at Sofia and we are going to Veliko Turnovo city, situated in Stara Planina mountain region. We drive 2 hours by car. The architecture of the city is unique, all the streets in the Old city are cobblestone and there are many historical places in the city of Veliko Turnovo – churches, old buildings.
Veliko Turnovo was Bulgarian historical capital of the Second Bulgarian Empire. It is called the cities of the Tsars because the Bulgarian emperors had lived there and build city-state fortress. There are 3 hills – Tsarevec, Trapezitsa, and Sveta Gora. The river Yantra crossed the city and forms amazing Canyon in the mountain Stara Planina.
The fortress Tsarevec is very famous because of the audiovisual spectacle “Sound and Light” which is performed every year during national holidays and festivals of the city Veliko Turnovo. It is FREE and it is performed no matter the weather conditions. It is an outdoor spectacle.
The “Sound and Light” is a spectacular thunderous show presenting the dramatic history of the Second Bulgarian State. One of the best dates to be watched are 3 and 22 March and 6 September. This time of the year the weather usually is very nice.
After visiting Veliko Turnovo our last stop is 8 km away – Village Emen. The village is an eco place where you can relax in a quiet and calm place.Complex “Imenieto” (click on teh name to find their facebook page) was my choice to stay and I love it. So much green area around, so cozy place with space for outdoor activities, a nice pool and volleyball playground. There is a spa included and the kitchen is really nice. The food is home-made and extremely delicious! This complex contains 8 wooden houses close to the forest. It smells so fresh and you could sleep so well.
In the village Emen there is a famous Canyon called Emenski Canyon, The cave of Emen and the echo path Emen.
Massive rocks, impressive view and an adventurous path will lead you to the epicenter of the Emen’s fairy tale. It smells on fresh moss, the Waterfall of the Emenski Canyon is calling you from the beginning of the echo path. You are trying to get to this waterfall and the road is intriguing.
The Canyon and the Waterfall of the village Emen are with faerie energy and the beautiful nature around is simply amazing. I feel the Bulgarian mountain is alive and it beats with the rhythm of the rocks, the wind, the water and the sky – perfect harmony between nature and her guests!
Живея в София, столицата на България, от вече почти 7 години и харесвам този забързан и изпълнен с динамика град. Родом съм от село Минерални бани, община Минерални бани, до град Хасково. Това е Южна България и тук хората са топли и усмихнати. Тук са родителите ми и моят дом, тук са детските ми мечти и приключения. Тук всичко и всичкиме ме подкрепят и обичат.
Обичам да се връщам тук за събота и неделя и да си почивам, да се наслаждавам на красивата природа, на старите селски къщи, на миризмата на село. Обичам звуците рано сутрин. Винаги когато се прибирам натежавам с поне 2 килограма, толкова вкусни неща ми приготвят у домa, че преяждам доволно. Имаме градина и от там си късаме био зеленчуци и плодове безплатно. Имаме двор и барбекю и прекрасни зелени градини. И една страхотна череша отпред!
Село Минерални бани е самостоятелна община. Има много добре развита спортна и фолклорна дейност. Мъжкият отбор по футбол и женският отбор по хандбал прославят малкото курортно селце. Самата аз тренирах над 10 години хандбал.
Национален курорт село Минерални бани, община Минерални бани! Добре дошли. Може да посетите сайтът на Минерални бани тук. Разбира се туристи има много и голяма част от тях се възползват от лековитата вода на минералните извори. Минералната вода е уникална по своя състав. В курортното селище има 14 бликащи извора. Повече за химичния състав на водата в Националния курорттук.
Има множество по-големи хотели, както и семейни хотели и стаи, където туристите отсадят и се възползват от вкусна храна, добро обслужване и спа пакети. В някои хотели има открити басейни, които са страхотни за разлечение зимата, защото наоколо има сняг, а ти си стоиш в минералната вода и снежинки валят по бузите ти…
В малкия център на селото има обществена баня на много достъпни цени, която също предоставя достъп до минералната вода. Може да проверите цените тук.
Природата на моя роден край е източно-родопска! Най-високият връх е Аида и е страхотно място за разходка и отдих. Гората е типичната широколистна прелест, която те приветства навсякъде из Родопите. Древните траки са населявали земите ни тук и са оставили своя отпечатък в народните традиции, празници, обичаи, като тук напълно изключвам църквата и църковните ритуали. Тук местното население наред с религиозните, е запазило и още по-дълбоки и стари традиции, които следва.
Римляните по нашите земи оставят и Римската крепост “Свети дух”.
Roman Fortress “Holy Spirit”
Разхождайки се из центъра на селото, задължително трябва да посетите стъпката на Света Богородица – местните вярваме, че тук е стъпила Богородица. И защо да не е стъпила? Теорията за хората гиганти е подкрепяна в миналото и до днес.
В община Минерални бани могат да се посетят редица каменни феномени – Орлова скала (с. Сърница), Пробития камък (с. Сърница), “Находище на момина сълза и божур” (местността Дренака). Селският туризъм предстои да се развива.
Терариумътв курортното селище Минерални бани също е страхотна атракция. Цялата информация за животинските видове, цени, контакти, къде се намира – етотук.
И сега какво остана? Заглавието е” У дома. Къде са тия Хасковски Минерални бани и Коледен дух”. За Коледния дух – Коледа тук е песни на коледари. Тези коледари са млади момчета и знаят песни за здраве и плодородие. Местните ги чакаме с орехи и сладки и се радваме на пестните им. Коледа тук е топлина, уют и на Бъдни вечер нечетен брой ястия. Коледа е фестивална. Да, в селцето кипи фолклорна култура и се провеждат фестивали през цялата година. Коледа е цветна, навсякъде с коледни светлини.
Благословена съм с корена си!
Пожелавам ви Весела Коледа и Весели Празници! Много любов, мечти и прегръдки.
