Directions to Gradishte Historic Landscape Park
Gradishteto is a historic landscape park in the Rhodope Mountains where visitors can enjoy spectacular views, pleasant trails, and see the remains of an ancient Thracian rock sanctuary. According to some experts, Gradishte is the largest temple of its kind in Bulgaria and very possibly in Europe as well. The big rocks and stones resemble various shapes such as tortoise, whale, and one of them, 'the Head' at the edge of the canyon, has now become the symbol of the place. Excavation works and surveys are still going on, yet there are enough enchanting tales and legends that you can hear from the locals. Gradishte is easily accessible by asphalt roads and then some 5 minutes walk through the forest. There are plenty of signs and resting spots on the way. You will need at least an hour for a good look around and 2 leva for the entrance fee.
