In my last posting I briefly described a place on the Black Sea coast in Bulgaria – Sinemorets. In my next (this) posting I will cover another place of interest in Bulgaria — this one in the Strandzha mountains — in South East Bulgaria near the border with Turkey. The place is actually also a living museum of old Bulgarian architecture. The village is Brashlian Бръшлян located in the Strandzha mountain.
Since 1982 the village has been declared an architectural reserve — the houses are representative of the 18th century Bulgarian regional architecture. While visiting you can also see an example of the early (18th century) school — essentially a single room school which was organized by the regiona clergy — essentially a church school.
Here are some photos to give you an idea of the natural beauty of the region. Of course you can see a lot more from your mountain bike

I even found some interesting video on YouTube about the village and one of its restaurants… See it here:
