The Rhodope Mountains in Bulgaria are rich in history and full of places to explore.
A Christian Church from the 5th century was recently discovered in Bulgaria’s Rhodope Mountains during excavations of the ancient city of Perperikon.
The Sega Daily reports that archaeologists have classified the new temple as an Early Byzantine Bishop’s Basilica (or church). This is the third Christian church that has been discovered in Perperikon since excavations began 17 years ago.
There’s no denying that Bulgaria’s Rhodope Mountains, the mountain range in the country’s southeast, are stunning. But given the size of the Bulgarian Rhodope Mountain range—the beautiful landscape covers 5,689 square miles (that’s over 3.6 Million acres)—it can be hard to decide on exactly which landmarks to visit.
Kaynak Piper Band’s mission is to make it possible for people all of the world to feel the magic of the kaba gaida (the Rhodope Mountain bagpipe).
They are making a lot of progress, but they still need our support.
Directed and scripted by Rouzie Hassanova, the Polish-Bulgarian-Turkish feature film, “Radiogram”, heads to Poland for post-production. Filming began last July 2015 primarily in a remote village in the Rhodope Mountains of Bulgaria. Bulgaria’s capital, Sofia, and the nearby Vitosha Mountain also served as locations for the film.
