Sightseeing: Krustova Gora
45 км south of Assenovgrad, in the proximity of the town of Luki and above the village of Belitsa, in Gradishte Mountain (western part of the Rhodope Mountains), is located one of the most honoured Christian holy places - Krustova Gora (Crest Forest). Close to Mt. Krustov Vruh (1413 м) there was a Christian monastery, which was burned by the Turks and the monks were killed as well. The place is considered a holly place - if someone overnights there, there is a chance for him to be cured, if ill. Of course, this is valid for truly religious persons. Now there is a church and always lots of people crowd there, especially on September 14th - the day of the Holly Crest. There is a regular bus transport to the village of Borovo. From there one may set out by car or on foot (1-1.30 hours).
