The Red Rock

The view to the Rhodope Mountains from the Red Rock area is delightful, so it takes a worthy place among the sights of the Western Rhodopes. chervenata_skala

The Red Rock is located above the village Ravnogor near another local landmark – Bekovi rocks. Besides the unforgettable view, Red Rock is also known for the legend that comes from centuries of Ottoman rule – two young girls threw themselves from this place to keep their faith. They entangled their long hair in a single braid and jumped into the abyss. The courage and faith of those young girls induces admiration and reverence until today.

For the convenience of tourists in the Red rock area several benches are placed, so as to allow the tourists to indulge in silence, fresh air and beauty of the mountain.
