Zheravna - Pictures Of Bulgaria
The village of Zheravna is 14 km south of Kotel and a regular bus runs to and from. It is one of the pearls of Bulgaria. Every building in the village is in itself a unique cultural monument. It has been preserved almost in its authentic appearance and atmosphere. The most interesting sights are: the House-Mouseum of Roussi Chorbadzhi, the House-Mudeum of Sava Filaretov, the House-Museum of Yordan Yovkov (that is the native home of the great Bulgarian writer), the houses of Dimo Kehaya and Todor Ikonomov, respectively. The village preserves remarkable ensembles of Renaissance town lay-out and architecture like the church complex with St. Nikolai Church built in 1932. It is worth mentioning the remarkable Hilendar Convent where Slavonic and Bulgarian History was copied (this particular copy is the so called Zheravna manuscript). The class school from 1867 houses an art gallery. The village is the native place of many outstanding Bulgarians as Yordan Yovkov, Raiko Popovich, Sava Filaretov, Todor Ikonomov, V. Stoyanov, Dr. V. Sokolski, D. Stoyanov Bradata (the Beard), etc. Accommodation facilities in Zheravna are to be found in the Zlatna Oresha Hotel Complex) offering 50 beds and a restaurant. There are private lodgings as well.
