With my family often rebound to Greece. This time we decided to use brand new checkpoint Zlatograd - Xanthi. Returning from Greece, we decided to poobikolim Zlatograd. Very small little town fascinates me with attractive houses, old town, cozy atmosphere. Our little trip unplanned surprise us, but still understood by the local, that have a sacred place that must be visited and that CROSS forest. Not much thought and thought and so we are here, why not visit it.
CROSS forest is a sacred place, which is located in the territory of Zlatograd. Extremely interesting is this place and local hota be proud that their town is located at such place of God. Was probably familiar to people since the time of pagan sanctuaries. Zlatograd is obrgraden four mountain peak located in the Cross. Therefore, it is called so. This population has established a Christian church every top-chapel dedicated to St. saints Sunday, St. Constantine and Elena, St. Elias and St. Atanas. Zlatograd among the legends say that those who attend the four Christian chapel, heals, if it is small and ill pilgrims. Full Hadji is going to visit the Holy Sepulcher in Jerusalem.
Chapels have been destroyed by Turkish conquest of that region during the XIV century. Heaped on top of St. Sunday "people from the surrounding villages had a stubborn resistance to the Conqueror and died with arms in hand, defended the chapel. So he was reinstated almost immediately and as a memorial to the fallen. Recovery is after each subsequent destruction. Recently restored chapel St. Atanas. Interesting is the construction of the chapel. Since there is no way for trucks, people were not vazmozhost other than to make a living chain to the top of the town, passing from hand to hand stones, cement, tahli, sand and iron. Thus Zlatograd intend to build a chapel last. Chapel St. Apostles Constantine and Helena "," St. Athanasius and St. Sunday "are already built.
In the "Klise gully between the villages and cross Dobromirovtsi can see the ruins of the city cathedral church of the place was probably razplozhen Zlatograd during the Middle Ages. The church was probably built in the XIII century.
