Home Shiroka Luka


Shiroka Luka
Shiroka Luka is a small village, inhabited only by 850 people, but it is an important historical site. It still preserves the traditional Rhodope architecture and culture.
The village is located at 1060 meters elevation in the valley of the Shirokolashka River. Shiroka Luka is situated at the foot of the Rhodope Mountain and Chernatitza, 24 kilometers away from Smolyan, 22 kilometers from Devin and only 11 kilometers from the popular ski resort of Pamporovo.
While staying in the village you will go back to the Renaissance period of Bulgaria with the typical houses, small paved streets and arched bridges. You will also get to know the Rhodopean traditions in the songs, speech and typical dishes of the area.
The village was founded during the 17th century – a time when the population was forced to convert to Mohammedanism while under the Ottoman control.
The first people who lived in the region were from the Urutzi tribe, but they later inhabited the Aegean region. The small village of Zaevite was the first settlement, but it had to be moved due to some landslides. The people first moved to the area around the Lukovitza River and later to the settlement now known as Shiroka Luka. The village is named after the wide delta of the river near it.
