Natural Parks and Reserves: Strandja National Park

Strandja National Park - Pictures Of Bulgaria
Strandja mountain was declared as national park and opened in 1995. With its teritory of 1161 sq. km. it is the largest protected area in the country. The park occupies the Bulgarian part of the mountain with an outlet on the sea. The whole municipality of Malko Turnovo and parts of the municipalities of Tsarevo and Primorsko are located within its territory, incorporating a total of 21 towns and villages with a population of about 8000. In the park there are 5 reserves: Silkosia (the first reserve in Bulgaria), Tisovitsa, Sredoka, Vitanovo and the Uzunbuzhak biosphere reserve. The karst region comprises also 12 protected areas. The highest peak in the Bulgarian part of the Strandja Mountain is Golyamo Gradishte with an altitude of 710 m above the sea level. In good weather the Bosphorus can be seen from it.

An undoubted hit of the last tourist season was the village of Brashlyan. It is an architectural and historical reserve. Here you can see 18th 19th century. Here is also the St. Demetrius church from the end of 17th century, the monastery school, the ethnographic collection and the visitors centre of Natural Park Strandja. The neighbouring village of Stoilovo is known for the greatest number of donkeys in the whole area and for its donkey safari. Our walk is long and is quite an attraction. Every donkey must have its guide because otherwise it will just go back home to eat and will refuse to follow the route.
