Belogradchik Fortress, one of the best attractions in Bulgaria
The Belogradchik Fortress and Vidin, Bulgaria, 2017
The Belogradchik Fortress is situated at a distance of 1.5 km from the town of Belgradchik among the renowned Belogradchik rocks.
The fortress has existed since Roman times. In 1st – 3rd century AD the Romans built roads in the new provinces of the empire on the Balkan peninsula, as well as fortresses to guard them.
The mission of the Belogradchik Fortress was to control the road from the town of Ratsiaria (near the today’s village of Archar in the region of Vidin). The Romans constructed the highest part of the fortress, called The Citadel.
There are remains of another fortress at a distance of a few meters from it – Latin Stronghold, which served as an assisting fortification.
Upon the separation of the Roman Empire in 395 the Balkan lands entered within the borders of Byzantium. In the end of 7th century the Belogradchik Fortress fell within the territory of the newly created Bulgarian state.
During the time of Tsar Ivan Sratsimir (1356 – 1396) the fortress was broadened and fortified. In 1396 the Ottomans conquered it and later reconstructed it. Garrison for protection of the west part of the empire and for oppression of the Bulgarians’ revolts was built.
In 1850, when the Belogradchik Uprising was routed, its leaders were taken away through one of the fortress tunnels and beheaded. On this place today raises a monument of their heroism. In 1885 during the war between Serbia and Bulgaria (1885) the fortress was last used as a military installation. It was declared an architectural and constructional monument in Issue 41 of the State Gazette of 1965.
The Belogradchik Fortress has three yards separated from one another, the total area of which reaches 10 210 square meters, and one fortification. Even nowadays embrasures (openings) for guns and three bastions and embrasures for cannons can be seen on the fortress walls.
The highest point of the fortress, called First Slab, reveals a beautiful view towards the Balkan.
The region is very popular among the tourists because of the beauty of the Belogradchik rocks and the multiple historical landmarks.

Bulgaria HiLites: Nesebar, Black Sea Coast
Nesebar, also transcribed as Nessebar or Nesebur; ancient name: Mesembria) is an ancient city and a major seaside resort on the Black Sea coast of Bulgaria, located in Nesebar municipality, Burgas Province. Often referred to as the Pearl of the Black Sea and Bulgaria's Dubrovnik, Nesebar is a rich city-museum defined by more than three millennia of ever-changing history.
Originally a Thracian settlement known as Menebria, the town became a Greek colony when settled by Dorians from Megara at the beginning of the 6th century BC, and was an important trading centre from then on and a rival of Apollonia (Sozopol). It remained the only Doric colony along the Black Sea coast, as the rest were typical Ionic colonies. Remains from the Hellenistic period include the acropolis, a temple of Apollo, and an agora. A wall which formed part of the fortifications can still be seen on the north side of the peninsula. Bronze and silver coins were minted in the city since the 5th century BC and gold coins since the 3rd century BC.
The town fell under Roman rule in 71 BC, yet continued to enjoy privileges such as the right to mint its own coinage. It was one of the most important strongholds of the Byzantine Empire from the 5th century AD onwards, and was fought over by Byzantines and Bulgarians, being captured and incorporated in the lands of the First Bulgarian Empire in 812 by Khan Krum after a two week siege only to be ceded back to Byzantium by Knyaz Boris I in 864 and reconquered by his son Tsar Simeon the Great. During the time of the Second Bulgarian Empire it was also contested by Bulgarian and Byzantine forces and enjoyed particular prosperity under Bulgarian tsar Ivan Alexander (1331--1371) until it was conquered by Crusaders led by Amadeus VI, Count of Savoy in 1366. The Bulgarian version of the name, Nesebar or Mesebar, has been attested since the 11th century.
Monuments from the Middle Ages include the 5--6th century Stara Mitropoliya (old bishopric; also St Sophia), a basilica without a transept; the 10th century church of the Virgin; and the 11th century Nova Mitropoliya (new bishopric; also St Stephen) which continued to be embellished until the 18th century. In the 13th and 14th century a remarkable series of churches were built: St Theodore, St Paraskeva, St Michael St Gabriel, and St John Aliturgetos.
The capture of the town by the Turks in 1453 marked the start of its decline, but its architectural heritage remained and was enriched in the 19th century by the construction of wooden houses in style typical for the Bulgarian Black Sea Coast during this period. It was a kaza centre in İslimye sanjak of Edirne Province before 1878. After the Liberation of Bulgaria from Ottoman rule in 1878, Nesebar became part of the autonomous Ottoman province of Eastern Rumelia as a kaza centre in Burgaz sanjak until it united with the Principality of Bulgaria in 1886.
Around the end of the 19th century Nesebar was a small town of Greek fishermen and winegrowers, but developed as a key Bulgarian seaside resort since the beginning of the 20th century. After 1925 a new town part was built and the historic Old Town was restored.

Bulgaria base bunge jumpers by: www.impactpressgroup.org
In the morning under the Asparuhov bridge between Black sea and Varna's lake, base jumpers prepare their parachutes for jumps over the 52 meters height bridge which is one of the lowest level for base jumps.Base jumping is the sport of using a parachute to jump from fixed objects. BASE is an acronym that stands for the four categories of objects from which one can jump, like buildings, bridges, antennas, spans, and earth.To make things more interesting, base-jumpers jump off various cliffs and man-made a low altitude objects, with only a few seconds to deploy the parachute, and virtually no time at all to deal with problems or malfunctions.Base jumping is so incredibly risky that it's actually illegal in many places.But in Bulgaria for the moment it is not illegal Starting in 1981 and as of May 9th, 2010 there have been at least 147 fatalities related to the sport. Base jumping is one of the world's more dangerous recreational activities, with overall fatalities in 2002 estimated at about one fatality per sixty participants.The club Adrenalin is the first and only one club which offers base and bungee jumps in the Balkan country.It was founded twenty years ago by former Bulgarian paratrooper Rosen Kasabov as they first start only by bungee jumps and from last year for the first time they offer and base jumps for everybody who wants to visit Black sea for the summer time.The bridge offers 52 meters altitude and as for the full parachute opening it needs 38-45 meters of free flight.At this reason many times the parachute is not fully opened or the time is not enough the speed to be reduced to low and save speed to hit the surface and only the water at the canal saves the jumper by injury.
Some jumpers do not attach the parachute folded at the rucksack on their back and prefer to hold it almost unfurled at hands and jump holding it as in the first 5-15 meters of the flight it opens very quickly and that is the way to hit the surface very gently and is more safe.
The base jumps place at the canal is good for jumps because of there is a water under it, but is possible sometimes any ship, small boat to hit the jumper or wind impulse to strike him on the bridge pillars and kill him.
During the base jumps people who are scared to do base can try bungee jumping using an elastic rope, as sometimes is possible to hit gently the water at the end of fly which is about 3-4 seconds.
For the past year the club provided more than thousand jumps as no one is fatal or any jumper been wounded.
