Sea Tourism: Pismenovo

Pismenovo - Pictures Of Bulgaria
Pismenovo is a village situated about 7km away from the Black Sea coast, in the municipality of Primorsko (Bourgas district). The village was established in 1913 by settlers from the nearby Gramatikovo, Malko Turnovo, Kondolovo and Zaberovo. It has about 100 permanent residents though increased purchases of holiday homes by foreigners have revived it in recent years.

The village spreads over several hills in the skirts of the Strandzha Mountain and overlooks to the sea, revealing a marvelous view. The main landmarks of the village are its church, a chapel, and a traditional workshop for production of wooden casks and barrels that can be seen in just few places in Bulgaria. The village is surrounded by oak trees on all sides, which makes summer heats bearable. The oaks are also used for the production of the famous manna honey, typical for the Strandzha region this honey is not made of nectar, but of the manna that covers oak leaves. Once it was believed that manna honey was poisonous but at present it is widely used for treatment of various diseases as it appears to be healthier than other types of honey.

Separately, there are 16 springs, the water of which is thought to be curable, in the villages surroundings. Several houses in the village operate as family hotels, mostly during the summer season.

Pismenovos annual holiday is marked on the last Saturday of July with a wrestling tournament and so-called nestinari dances (people dancing barefooted over live coals).
