Bulgarians and Serbians will look for traces of legendary magical creatures
Two groups of adventurers will head out on both sides of the Bulgarian- Serbian border to look for traces of the former mythical creatures that inhabited these lands. Demigods, dragons and halls, fairies, witches and sorcerers, orcs and goblins, dwarves and giants are sung in legends and works of folk art. Signs of these magical beings are seen in the forms of several natural phenomena. The participants in the thematic tour "Legends Go Alive", which starts on the 6th and lasts until June 8, 2021, will look for already described and unprecedented traces of them.
The Bulgarian tour is organized by the National Tourism Cluster "Bulgarian Guide". Its first part will include a visit to various natural phenomena, will reveal the mysteries of cave puzzles and will end with the Belogradchik Rocks. The second part of the route will take the searchers to rock labyrinths and eco-trails.
At the same time, on the Serbian side of the border, a group organized by ENECA - the Association of Economic Experts (Nis) will head out from Pirot to visit several waterfalls, lakes, and canyons.
The expedition will be filmed on video, so that later everyone will be able to touch the magical treasures of this part of the Balkan Peninsula.

This is the result of his many years of work and belief that the secret of eternal life is hidden in magical beings.” Thus begins the scenario of the tour, elaborated by National Tourism Cluster “Bulgarian Guide”!
