The Strandzha is Bulgaria’s and possibly Europe’s least-known mountain range. It is a wild maze where you can easily get lost and a safe haven for species that survives the extinction of the last Ice Age. It is a mysterious place where century-old legends and stories cohabit with paganism, Christianity, and modern mythology. It is dotted with ancient and latter-day ruins. Yet, it is a lot more than that.

Its pristine beaches on the Black Sea coast, its nature reserves, its rivers, and its forests provide the intrepid traveler with countless opportunities to explore: from the perplexing ruins of Begliktash to the sea daffodils at Arkutino, from the fireflies at Ropotamo to the thickets around Mishkova Niva and the mysteries of fire walking in the village Balgari.

This book is designed as both a travel log and a guide into the unknown Strandzha. It will take you to the important sites and events while explaining the contexts. A must for anyone with an interest in southeast Europe in general and Bulgaria in particular.
