ZlatogradThe town of Zlatograd is situated in the southernmost part of the East Rhodopes, 50 km away from the regional center Smolyan and 300 km away from the capital city of Sofia. Zlatograd is a settlement with rich culture and centuries-old history. The architectural reserve gives the town a specific look. For the Bulgarian experts on ethnography, historians and philologists the town of Zlatograd is a center of the oldest traditions in the material culture and lifestyle of our nation. The only Bulgarian town with a name wafting in the Space, the town of Delyo Voivode, has established itself as a preferred destination not only for Bulgarian, but also for foreign tourists. There are many churches, monasteries and Christian tombstones in the town of Zlatograd and its outskirts, testifying that this land was inhabited mainly by Bulgarian people. Other interesting landmarks are the architectural and cultural monuments from XVIII-XIX century in the town itself. One of the oldest churches in the Rhodopes – “Uspenie Bogordichno”, built up in 1834, is preserved here. In its yard the Monastery School is positioned. In the yard of St. Georgi Pobedonosets church, built in 1834, the Common School is situated, where one could see the museum collection “Educational deed in the Middle Rhodopes”. The oldest written document from the Rhodopes Revival from 1852 – “the Letter of Zlatograd” /Zlatogradski pismovnik/ was discovered here. The areal architecture reserve, keeping many old houses and workshops of the Rhodopes, is related with the Etar near the town of Gabrovo. On the peaks around the town of Zlatograd, on the place of the demolished monasteries the chapels “St.Atanas”, “St. Nedelya”, “St. St. Konstantin and Elena” and “St. Iliya”have been built. Their natural position forms the so called “Cruciform forest”. Till these very days it is deemed that they protect the town. In 2004 the town of Zlatograd was included in the hundred national tourists’ sites, and in February, on the Tourists Market “Vakantsia 2006”, the Ethnographic areal resort received the Golden prize for attraction of year 2005.
