Staro Zhelezare

Have you heard of Staro Zhelezare village in Bulgaria? In the center of Bulgaria students from Poznan University of Arts have turned a small village into an open air art gallery. Here you will meet famous worldwide political, spiritual, art and science leaders. Staro Zhelezare will color our day with graffiti and you wouldn’t know who will show up round the corner. The students paint here each summer and bring back to life the walls of Staro Zhelezare.

Hissar

Today we will visit one more highlight of Bulgaria, Diocletianopol (today Hissar), a Bulgarian town with a thousand year old history. The suitable climate and mineral water have brought people to these sites earlier than V-IV millennia BC. There are 22 mineral springs and the construction of massive fortress walls began in 3c. during the Roman time of Emperor Diocletian. With its perseverance and uniqueness the fortification system and architecture of the Roman town Diocletianopol ranks in the first places in Europe. On many points the wall reaches height of 11m and the south city wall goes up to 13m. The most famous gate is called the Camels. We will have time for a walk, taking photos of the gate and the Roman ruins. Next we will visit the church of St Panteleimon (he is a healing saint and people pray to him for good health). Chance for optional visit to a mineral spa center with a swimming pool. In 1882 in Hissar the spa and wellness tourism is launched in Bulgaria. The 22 mineral springs have different temperature and healing qualities.

Optional lunch

On the way to Sofia optional lunch at a restaurant in horse riding place. Or if you are very hungry, we will stop for lunch in Hissar. After visiting the swimming pool people need energy to continue the tour.

One tour, which will heal our body and soul with the help of natural wonder of the mineral water, pure air and a lot of fun and smiles. Bulgaria off the beaten track.
