The unadulterated beauty of Sarnena Sredna Gora

Spring has come everywhere!

I am in the charming Sarnena Sredna Gora, and everywhere everything is green and very beautiful!

Shortly after the village of Babek and on the way to the village of Svezhen, on one of the big turns on the left there is a fork, whose exact coordinates are:

I stopped to take a break from driving to enjoy the perfect southern slopes of Sarnena Sredna Gora, without having the slightest idea of the adventure ahead.

I took the dirt road ahead.

Immediately to the left, behind the green leaves of the deciduous trees, a glistening surface of water was found, reflecting the afternoon rays of the hot May sun.

A dam?!

I looked at the map (Google maps). Yes, I do find a small pond here, but the name is not written - unknown little and hidden in the woods!

What a joy!

I look around - there is absolutely no one around!

I am alone with this secret charm!

Slowly I go down to the water. It is not big, but it is infinitely charming - surrounded by dense centuries-old forests. What a quiet and deserted place!

Thousands of wild, forest and many beautiful flowers greet me by the water!

I look around - no traces of people, probably no one has come here since I don't know how long!

A wonderful adventure!

I don't stop photographing - the nature is untouched and the surroundings are incredibly beautiful!

White spring flowers are mixed with yellow flowers and green colors of the grass - swaying in the light wind.

Rumble! Maybe a storm is coming?

I go to the wall of the dam, located on its southern side. I walk on it.

Untouched nature! Bird songs! Thunder from an emerging storm! Clouds like tow! Blue skies and clear sun!

No matter how hard I try, I can hardly express all the great feelings that arose in me at the sight of this unique and untouched beauty!

My dear friends, in case you have a way to Brezovo or Svezhen, don't miss this hidden lovely charm!

I wish you an exceptional and impressive walk!
