    What to Expect
    When the empire of the dinosaurs was rising, most of the Bulgarian lands were below the sea. 150 million years later, this sea is Ponor mountain. Now that carst mountain has limestones from the Triassic and Jurassic period.Komstitsa- a village, which is one of the most important places of Bulgaria for  belemnites, squid-like animals, shells and ammonites.This area was full with people in the past. Thrachians tribes settled here Romans built a fortress and roads from Naisus to nowadays West Bulgaria. During the Bulgarian Revival Komstitsa was craft center and the village became famous with its dairies.This area was a place for battles between Bulgaria and Serbia during the wars in the end of XIXth. and beginning of XXth. century. 

    The transfer to Komstitsa is 1.5 hours. From the end of the village the tour starts. We’ll walk on dirty roads, making a girth around the peak, called “Kaleto”. During the walking we can see fossils from Jurassic period and remains of old fortifications. Before entering again in the village we can see an old graveyard from the end of XIXth century and you can see the evolution of the cross. 

    IMPORTANT NOTE: Don’t take the fossils, they are a natural treasure of the country.  

     When a man turns and sees his past, he sees how much different he has become from the one he had previously named himself.
