Zlatograd

In the most Southern part of Bulgaria, in the skirts of Eastern Rodopi mountain, on the banks of Varbitza river, is situated Zlatograd, the most ancient historical center of Smolyan region. This is the town of Delio Hajdutin - the guardian of the local population from the violent ottomans, immortalized in a song which travels across the universe towards other civilizations.
History: The town of Zlatograd has preserved numerous architectural and cultural monuments from XVIII XIXth century.
The architectural reserve of Zlatograd has preserved numerous old Rodopian houses with eaves and wells in the inner yards, fenced by oak heaps. The chapels st. Atatnas, St. Nedelya, St. Iliya and St. Constantine and Helena are situated on the nearby hilss, that surround the town. Zlatograd Dam is situated just 3 km away from the town and it is a favourite site for all fishermen.
Today Zlatograd is a beautiful town that has preserved the charm of the traditions of the Bulgarian Revival Period. Numerous hotels, restaurants and private houses offer comfort for all tourists and travelers.
One of the attractions of the complex is the three pieces of water equipment that still work even today: the tucking-mill, the fulling-mill, and the water-mill. They are located in a building known as Vuntsovs Mill. The tucking-mill is used for washing, the fulling-mill is used for the processing of woolen fabrics, and the water-mill is used for flour grinding.
Many Bulgarian holidays and customs are celebrated in a traditional style at the ethnographic complex, for example: Trifon Zarezan (the Day of the Vine-Grower - mid-February), Baba Marta (Grandma March Day beginning of March), Todorovden (St. Theodores Day the first Sunday of the Easter Fast), Enyovden (St. Johns Eve - 24 June), Waits (24 December) and so on. The Day of Zlatograd is celebrated on 21 November.
