Becoming acquainted with the forests of Bulgaria – our cultural and historical heritage



In the sunny month of June, the students and young people participating in the project “NO to Poverty – YES to Labour” will carry out four exciting visits. They will be under Activity 1 “Becoming acquainted with the forests of Bulgaria” and are different in terms of covered topics. In this way, the young Roma will manage to get a better idea and completely realize the wide range of functions, benefits and significance of forest ecosystems for the life of our people.

Firstly, we visited the picturesque mountain village of Ribaritsa, which is situated at the skirts of the majestic Teteven Balkan Mountain. We reached the historical area of Kostina and saw Karvavoto Kladenche (“the Bloodstained Spring”), where we watched a performance showing the murder of Georgi Benkovski after the quelling of the April Uprising.

Afterwards, we saw and became acquainted with the broadleaved trees and conifers, herbs and mushrooms which are typical of our area. It was very useful that Mr Lako Ivanov, Mayor of Lopyan and long-time employee of Etropole State Forest Estate, participated in the activity and supported it.

The objective of this visit was to clearly demonstrate to the students how important the Balkan Mountain has been in Bulgarian history, way of life and culture. The students were very excited and impressed. Long after the visit they were commenting on what they had seen on this unforgettable day.
