From Varna: Rock Sanctuaries Hiking Tour

8. From Varna: Rock Sanctuaries Hiking Tour

The Shumen Plateau is filled with numerous beauties and mystery. Within a day we will try to unravel and enjoy some of them. Rock monasteries in that area, keep many secrets for the life of the monks. There is no exact information about the time these monasteries were created, but some surviving frescoes show that they were the center of spiritual life during the Second Bulgarian Kingdom (13th – 14th century). If you desire historical places and nature, then you are in the right place. We leave from Varna at 9:00 o'clock in the direction of Shumen and in particular - the village of Osmar. We will arrive around 10:00 o'clock and without losing any time we will begin our adventure. There is a dirt road at the end of the village, that we will take. After about 30 minutes, we reach Kostadinov Monastery, where we will take a complete inspection of this beautiful, sacred place. Once done, we head to the rock phenomenon the Eye, which is the fourth -most powerful energy center of Bulgaria after Rupee, Tsarichina and Madara. Next in line is the Direclia. To get to this monastery, we have to make a slight detour and return along the path to the Kostadin Monastery. We take the other path until we reach our desired destination. Here we will enjoy not only the cells of the monastery, but also the incredible view that opens in front of us. After we have charged with another dose of positive energy, we head along a path through the forest to Momina skala. Walking there is easy and very pleasant. When we are ready, we set off again through the forest to perhaps the most mystical of all the monasteries in the area, namely the Cell. To enter it, it is necessary to climb a wooden ladder, which is fixed at the entrance to the site itself. For dessert, there is Khankrumovsky monastery - a holy place imbued with mystery and mysticism. After exploring the area in detail, it is time for a short rest, photos and even meditation against the backdrop of the beauties before us. We rest well, drink a sip of water and head back to the village where we left our cars. We will go on a dirt road, which will take us down to the village of Troitsa. From there we have about 3 kilometers on the road to the village of Osmar and the place where we parked. An adventure in which, in one way or another, we were able to touch the lifestyle of the hesychast monks who lived in these magical places. Energized and smiling, we say "See you soon" and look forward to our next challenge.

Awesome experience. Everything was properly arranged, so surprised how all the footwear they have collected before getting on the boat were all properly lined up and paired when passengers are already unboarding. It helped the unboarding organized and without chaos. The crew is very attentive never letting you have empty glass or plate on your hand. The food was also great and unlimited drinks is equally awesome, it would have been perfect if it's longer hrs.. 4hrs to enjoy such amazing experience is bit short. ;) Also, swimming in the black sea to snorkel was a good point to mention, they have provided swimming gadgets to ensure passengers will enjoy the swim. They have ensured that passengers would be safe by providing the do's and don'ts before jumping into the water. To add, even though our location was not included in the pick up point, the organizer made an extra mile by picking us up. In summary, I would highly recommend this trip. Excellent job to the captain and crew.

The excursion was the best thing about the holiday, learning interesting things about the country, far away from tourism. The stop at the family's was really great, megga friendly and the food was megga delicious. And the gyde was great, you should have experienced it
