From Alican and Dilucu border gates to Karakale

Igdir is known for its borders with three countries. The border with Armenia is ver. close. Alican border gate connects Igdir with Erivan and Dilucu border gate also connects Igdir with Nakhichevan. When you arrive the places the settlement areas may be observed very clearly, yet the border gates can not be crossed due- to security reasons, and by continuing through Central Igdir, we also pass through Karakale. Just across Karakale, there is also Armenia. Karakale, which is located at a location in west of Igdir Plain on thc Armenian border, at a location, suitable for defense, is one of the oldest settlement areas in the region. It dates back to the Urartus, maybe older. The walls of the fort has been destroyed by earthquakes and today they are totally wrecked. When we see that how we were close to Armenia with the Serdarabat bridge on Araş river, we can not conceal or surprise. After we determine our borders in our minds, we depart for our hotel in central Igdir

Central Ig

Tuzdagi

The caves in Tuzdagi, which have been formed 60 miilion years above, remind us of Cappadoda. However, these are not natural caves, instead, these are old enterprises, which have been dug by the humans to extract salt. This place has been operated by many nations and States who hat lived in the region. During the Ottoman era, Tuzdagi region is the most important mining area for the satisfaction of the requirements of the region. To operate his place, they have even built bridges and passages, the remains of which have been found today.

In the entrance of the new enterprise, a gray fox looks towards us from the hills. We can not see but everyone gets excited. Since the salt meets humid air in the entrance of the mountain, it resembles foam. It is hard, white and bubbly. When we enter the cave, cool air, which smells of salt surrounds us. It is said that the air inside was good for the asthmatic people. Nowadays a company has taken over the operation of the Tuzluca caves.

At the same time, we learn that this place was a passage point for numerous species of birds, due to these lands.

Nestinarstvo Bulgaria Tours

Wonder or strong belief

Is it a wonder or a strong belief? Do the nestinari (fire dancers) have special skills or energy? Where does this ritual come from? Why is it on UNESCO’s World Heritage List? These and may be different questions tease people’s imagination. Not only that of tourists’ but of Bulgarians as well. Nestinarstvo Bulgaria tours might have some of the answers: Do you want to try?!

There are many stories for where nestinarstvo originates from. The biggest group of supporters, though, believe that the fire dancing on live coals ritual comes from the Thracians. Why Thracians? The Thracian tribes worshipped their God Sun. Which is, when scattered in a circle the live coals symbolise exactly the Sun.

Like other rituals in Bulgaria, nestinarstvo has both Ch

Stoletov Bulgaria Tours

Stoletov Bulgaria tours to remember

‘And today, every time there’s a storm in the mountain,
The summit recalls this grim day and, recounting
The story, its echoing glory relays
From valley to valley, from age unto age!’ (Ivan Vazov)

Stoletov Bulgaria tours introduces a monument that stays proudly on a peak and reminds the Bulgarians of their glorious past. This monument is Shipka Monument and it is a symbol of the Russo-Turkish War. It speaks of the Liberation of Bulgaria from the Ottoman Empire. The war follows the April Uprising from April 1876. It broke out prematurely and was quickly put down. That didn’t the least discourage the Bulgarians who were, against their will, part of the Ottoman Empire for 500 years. On the contrary, that increased their desire for independence
