Grandfather's Glove Park in Zlatitsa

Updated: Oct 2, 2023

Dear friends of Photo Moments, welcome to Grandfather's Glove Park!


Park "Grandfather's Glove" in the city of Zlatitsa

Grandfather left for Zlatitsa,

and lost his glove.

There she played in the field

little mouse Grizana,

the glove it saw

and it warmed up inside.

There it goes, wet and scared

runs Zayo from the forest.

It stops him on the dusty road

the grandfather glove.

- Who snuggles up in the heat there? –

asks Long-eared Rabbit…

- I am a tiny Grizana.

Who are you, so I'm afraid?

– I am Zayo Srednogorski,

I hide from choral words -

said Rabbit timidly

and asked cautiously:

- In this warm glove

peace will it find

my timid soul?

- Come in, I'm bored alone! –

Grizana said melodiously.

Lisa is coming a little later.

(What is it without her?)

He stood up in the middle of the road

and sneers slyly.

– Who is in that glove? –

asks the cunning maid.

– A tiny Grizana mouse

here he rests in warmth,

Zayo Bayo Srednogorski,

hidden from bad people's words.

Well, your grace, who is it?

and why bother us!

- I am the golden fox

and I want to be warm

in your wonder glove.

- Enter, though we are many,

but you are our relative!

The Wolf left the forest

on work to the villages.

He stops on the dusty road -

hungry and scary.

The glove he looks,

leans down to sniff it

but he feels her sewing

and he then asks:

- Whose scared soul

hide in that glove?

- Here he rests in the warmth

tiny Grizana mouse,

Zayo Bayo Srednogorski,

hidden from bad people's words,

the golden fox.

Well, your grace, who is it?

and why bother us?

- I am a Wolf from the Balkans,

I wish to be your guest...

- Enter, though we are many,

but you are our relative!

After a while, everyone realizes

whole earth shaken –

comes shaggy Metzana (the Bear),

he peered into the glove

and bravely called out:

- Whose scared soul

hide in that glove?

- Here he rests in the warmth

tiny Grizana mouse,

Zayo Bayo Srednogorski,

hidden from bad people's words,

the golden fox,

Kumcho Valcho from the Balkans,

guest at our invitation.

Well, your grace, who is it?

and why bother us?

– I am shaggy Metzana,

I wish to be your guest.

- Enter, though we are many,

but you are our relative!

They gathered in comradeship,

positioned themselves royally

in the drum glove

and they opened a word...

Soon grandfather from Zlatitsa

went back to look

his warm glove.

Besides, if he doesn't find it,

grandma will yell at him...

And walking and coughing,

in the middle of the road he stops

and his soul subsides,

his heart trembles —

looks, looks and does not believe:

his glove sews

mouse head is submitted

and a fox tail,

and a piece of earring,

a piece of bear coat,

someone's sharp teeth are shining…

- What are you thinking, man! –

grandfather said to himself

and roll up his sleeves

and struck with the club,

and repeat and repeat…


He met him at home in the evening

his old grandmother:

grandfather hunting with the car drives

and smiled even from ear to ear,

he smokes the pipe...

Grandfather's Glove Park in Zlatitsa was opened on June 1, 2022.


How do you get here?


What can you visit nearby?

Very close to the Grandfather's Glove park is the old clock tower.

From the old clock tower, head towards the northeastern part of Zlatica, north of the railway line, where Stara Planina Street is located. Taking it, you will soon find yourself outside the northern outskirts in the foothills of the Balkans, where the rumble will tell you that you are approaching Zlatiski Waterfall.

In the immediate vicinity of the waterfall itself are the stairs that will take you to the chapel of St. St. Cyric and Iulita. The place offers an extremely beautiful view of the entire Zlatishko-Pirdop valley.
