(Fire-walking rituals in Strandzha mountain village Balgari, 3rd -4th June 2018)

As it has been for years, in this year too, the Thracian fire-walking rituals passed down from generation to generation, are going to stun the spectators with its mysterious shamanic techniques. Setting their pace in rhythm with the drum's beats and enigmatic bagpipes the firewalkers, locally called nestinari, will fall into a deep trance and will invoke holy spirits of higher dimensions. Only the purest souls are gifted with the ability to get in contact with particular spiritual patrons and to have epiphanies while dancing. Carrying the icons of St. Constantine and St.Helen, and walking barefoot over the glowing-red coals, those mystical dancers will utter enchantments, spells and prayers calling for prosperity, health and fertility. It's an event that is not to be missed. It takes place on Saint Constantine and Saint Helen's day in the village of Balgari, Burgas province.

But should you have planned a longer stay in the area of Strandzha mountain you'd better take advantage of your proximity to the landmarks of this region. Visiting the sites listed here is but a must: the rock sanctuary Beglik Tash, Petrova niva site, and the sanctuary of Bastet. According to the modern believes the last one is a sepulchre of the Egyptian cat-headed goddess Bastet. She is usually depicted holding a lazar sword whose energy rays point towards the sky. Although the sanctuary has not been completely investigated and analyzed yet, it still attracts visitors across the globe.

The season now is particularly suitable for arranging ornithological trips across Strandzha mountain. National Park Strandzha is home to 283 species of birds, many of which are protected or critically endangered to extinct. Along the bank of the Veleka river one can enjoy watching a great variety of feathered friends such as: eagles, storks, herons, cormorants, pelicans, bee-eaters, you name it. Since early spring, up to October thousands of birds are in constant motion here. You can see them circling above, hovering, hunting in the area or going back and forth along the migration route Via Pontica. A traced tourists route provides excellent spots for birdwatching. It follows the right bank of the Veleka river reaching the remarkably beautiful mouth of the river near to the village of Sinemorets. One of a kind experience is guaranteed.

Along the Veleka river's bed are sitting another two natural gems-the reservations of Silkosya and Uzunbodjak. The picturesque beauty of a lagoon and a sandy bank formed by the river over the centuries can take your breath away. In that unspoiled and natural habitat one can explore rare plant life such as a water lily, a marsh snowdrop, an alder tree, a bamboo tree, etc.

Sapareva Banya and The Seven Rila Lakes - August 2018

Only 75 km away from Sofia is situated a magic place which has the capacity of surprising even one's wildest expectations when it comes to alpine trips, stunning views and mineral waters.

The only existing geyser in Europe, whose temperature reaches over 103o is right there, in Sapareva Banya. That is one of the most therapeutic thermal mineral waters on the continent. It can heal wide range of ailments. In the village of Sapareva Banya and its surrounding are clusters of hotels, guest houses, hostels, many of which offer rehabilitation therapy treatments based on mineral water. According to the exceptionally favourable feedback given by tourists so far, that mineral water possesses magic healing powers. But the trip doesn't stop here - it is right in the heart Sapareva Banya from where starts one of the nationwide known mountain hiking routes which reaches almost the top of Rila mountain. For those who might not be happy climbing the steep and winding paths there is a chairlift leading straight to The Seven Rila Lakes site.

Every summer this clean and mystical alpine area brings together followers, disciples and sympathizers of the worldwide known spiritual movement The Universal White Brotherhood. Those around this movement claim that following its doctrine ensures good overall physical health, spiritual purity, psychic balance and elevation of mind. Every year in August, that community commemorates the passing of the summer and beginning of their Sun New Year. One of the most magnificent and enigmatic is the sacred dance called Dance of Life or Paneurhythmy. It is performed literally on the mountain top and pays tribute to the movement of all planets and stars. The steps and the graceful pattern of movements followed by the dancers is proven to enhance body functions and coordination. The tunes pouring out while the crowd is dancing are known to be profound and soothing, benefitting human memory, enlightening one's thought, inspiring, and most of all setting human mind in tune with the supreme universe's mind. They claim that this very place has been a spiritual centre since the dawn of humankind. As for the community of the White Brotherhood, strange but true, all the members treat each other in a very kind and brotherly way despite being perfect strangers sometimes. As far as accommodation is concerned, the mountain settlement Panichishte as well as a good number of huts, chalets and hotels are spread around in walking distance, waiting for their guests.
