Our journey through the scenery of the nature park will be accompanied by breathtaking landscapes and exciting encounters with forest occupants. We will begin our walk from the impressive rock phenomena “Halkata”, “Kumini”, “Kukli”, “Gavikata” and Kaloyanovi towers. They stand out against the backdrop of the vast field with its bizarre shapes that nature has been waving for thousands of years. We continue to the mysterious caves “Zmeevi hoops”, “Batch”, “Futul”, “Haydushka” and “Peschenik”. Some of them have found objects from the New Stone Age. Among the findings are stone axes and molds for casting bronze axes and weapons, as well as ornaments, pottery and votive tiles. At dozens of places in the park we can see the ruins of old fortresses, monasteries, holy holy water sources and ancient roads. For example, in the area of Hissarlaka is the archaeological reserve “Tuida” (Roman fortress III-Vv), and along the Manastirska River there are remnants of the monastery “St. Spas. ” According to tradition, it is one of the 24 monasteries built in the 13th-14th centuries, known as the Sliven small holy mountain.
One of the most beautiful places in the park is the Kushbunar springs and the White springs, while the waterfalls Sini Vir and Futulata will captivate you. Around them you can see countless wonderful butterflies flying over. In turn, you will also welcome the kingdom of birds – the Egyptian vulture, the rock eagle and the great hawk. Do not be surprised if a white-tailed bunny pops out of a shrub or you see a wild cat. If you are fond of extreme sports, visit Sinite Kamani Park in winter.
