I visited village Brushlyan this Sunday, cycling from the forest area of Chapel St. Panteleimon, where we camped with friends.

The village Brushlyan is located in the northeast of Strandja, at an altitude of 240 meters.

This is a very special place with narrow streets and 200-year-old rural houses, declared cultural monuments.

In the vicinity of the village there are dolmens, mound necropolises and remains of an ancient settlement.

The settlement dates from the late 17th century and the early 18th. The place is naturally protected from the surrounding heights and natural water sources.

In the center of the village is the church "St. Dimitar".

At the end of the 17th century, which the church was erected , there was a Thracian sanctuary in ancient times. It is believed that it was dedicated to the fertility god - Dionysus. The unique bell from the first half of the 19th century can be seen today.

In the center of the village is located a stone fountain built in 1936:

There is a place called the "Ethnographic Assembly" in the village. It is dedicated to traditional agriculture from the Renaissance. In a specially built shed and all over the yard are positioned old agricultural instruments used by local people in the past.

There one can touch folklore performances and customs that are unique to Strandzha only.

Cycling through the streets, I came across this sign depicting the route of "Π’he path of the clear moon". I hope I have the opportunity to travel to this area someday.

What a beautiful bright and sunny day. That sky is SO blue! It looks like a very nice place. And I like that it looks very traditional. It makes me think a little bit of Mediterranean. The nature looks quite similar..

Thank you for sharing and congratulations on your curie vote!

This is quite a unique village. Though the road is unpaved, but it is clean. I love it. It reminds me so much of the life in the province, free from the complexity of the city life! 😍

Thank you for taking us there.
