“Rodopkso katche” guest house – „Krastata gora" (The cross-shaped forest)

The belief in the wonder-working strength of the Christian cross is permanently reflected in Zlatograd – on four of the highest peaks surrounding it there used to be pagan sanctuaries, which later were transformed into Christian places of a cult. These are: "Saint Atanas" (with existing chapel), "Saint Iliya", “Saint Elena" and "Saint Ekaterina". The imaginary lines, connecting the opposite peaks form an original cross. Therefore the local population calls the whole zone of the cross „Krastata gora (The cross-shaped forest)“.
And until nowadays it is believed that Zlatograd was and shall be protected from evils thanks to its location in this sacral zone.
The church-monastery fortress on peak “Saint Nedelya” fascinates not only with the mysterious legend for its existing, but with its incredible panorama of the surrounding it century-old trees. From here at clear day there can be seen the peaks of Samotraki island.
The chapel “Saint Atanas” is picturesquely located at an upland beside the town. From it is visible almost the whole town of Zlatograd.

“Rodopkso katche” guest house – the locality of „The white rocks“

The Thracian sanctuary is dedicated to the God Sun and is a centre of a circle, around which are located other Thracian sanctuaries, dedicated to the God - Sun.
The archeological observations show that in the deep cracks of the rocks the Thracians put coins, potteries, wheat, millet, and after this they plastered up the crack with clay.
The archaeologists suppose that these are gifts – sacrifices to the tonic (underground gods) and they specify the White Rocks top as an ancient sanctuary. There is built a bicycle alley to the object and two archeological paths.
In the village there is a tavern, famous for its good cuisine, where typical Rhodope specialties can be tasted.

Among the most interesting are"The Crocodile", "The Mushroom", "The Lion’s Head" and etc.
Litterally located at meters from the main road for Kardzhali are and the Thracian sanctuaries. These pagan sacrificial altars and tombs-temples are one of the most ancient monuments of the human civilization. There million years ago mighty geological processes have pushed out on the surface enormous rock massifs. The Thracians considered that these rocks are sents to them by the Gods and thus the rock massifs were deified, and in them each family excavated a family altar – sacrificial altar. The sacrificial altars are hundreds and are excavated in the rock at depth of 5-10 cm. Other trapezium-shaped niches are cut out vertically in the rocks, they probably served for funeral niches or they were altars of the God-Sun.
Here is located and one of the few found in Bulgaria caves-wombs, as the interesting with it is that it is the only one eastern cave-womb.

“Rodopkso katche” guest house – Devil’s bridge near Ardino

The Devil’s bridge is wrapped in legends, connected with the origin of its name and with its building. One of the legends says the following:
Years on end the local residents have tried to build a bridge between the two banks, but every time the swift-flowing river waters have destroyed what they have built. And when the builders have decided to give up, accepting that the place is cursed, a young master has undertaken with the task, who has intended to sacrifice his beloved (as he would built in her shadow) in order to build the bridge. All of a sudded appeared the Devil, who revealed the master the secret of the stable construction, but also set him conditions. In order the bridge to be solid and everlasting, there should be pictured the image of the Satan, which to be simultaneously visible and invisible, to be able to be touched and still not to be materialized. And this should be done within 40 days. Otherwise the Sly would have taken the souls of the master and of his wife. For amazement of everyone, including the Devil, the mason has fulfilled all conditions. But soon after this he died and his secret remained unpuzzled.
However, it is a fact that the Devil’s bridge stays firm until nowadays (already 500 years), and the image of the Devil is visible, when you look the bridge vertically – half of his face is in the rock, and the other half is reflected in the water.
