Stop At: 2255 Komshtitsa, Bulgaria

Komstitsa- a village, which is one of the most important places of Bulgaria for belemnites, squid-like animals, shells, and ammonites. This area was full of people in the past. Thracians tribes settled here Romans built a fortress and roads from Naisus to nowadays West Bulgaria. During the Bulgarian Revival, Komstitsa was craft center and the village became famous with its dairies.This area was a place for battles between Bulgaria and Serbia during the wars at the end of XIXth. and the beginning of XXth. century

The transfer to Komstitsa is 1.5 hours. From the end of the village, the tour starts. We’ll walk on dirt roads, making a girth around the peak, called “Kaleto”. During the walking, we can see fossils from the Jurassic period and remains of old fortifications. Before entering again in the village we can see an old graveyard from the end of the XIXth century and you can see the evolution of the cross.

 IMPORTANT NOTE: Don’t take the fossils, they are a natural treasure of the country.
