We approached the village Yasna Polyana. Beautiful wooden sculptures have been revealed to us already at the beginning of the village. They were created during the National Symposium on Sculpture in Wood, which has been held at this place over the years.

After a long ascent we got to Rock Sanctuary Beglik Tash. There we had a meeting with our friends.

We did a walk through the Thracian Sanctuary.

Beglik tash was a sacred place and there were performed sacred rituals from BC II to the beginning of IV century AC. In the region were found lots of weapons, pottery, tools, coins... In these times these lands were inhabited by the Thracian tribe "skirmiani". More info here

Rock elements of the sanctuary has natural origin, but some of them were further grouped into different ensembles depends on to the performed rites.
