Description

Bulgaria is a country with a thousand-year history in the development of animal husbandry, which is an old and traditional livelihood of the Bulgarian population. Thanks to the knowledge and traditions accumulated for centuries, specific Bulgarian breeds of domestic animals have been created, also called autochthonous breeds. Unfortunately, with the growing influence of globalization in livestock farming, more than half of Bulgarian breeds are on the verge of extinction, which will lead to the loss of specific features that each of them has, and they can hardly be re-created. The preservation of the gene pool is carried out through actions, habits and resources typical of each region, which helps preserve rural areas, lifestyle and culture. In modern Bulgaria there are several enthusiasts who have rescued these breeds and some of them are ready to introduce you to these wonderful rare animals and to tell you what care should be taken for them in a specially created Center of rare breeds, the Association and the farm. Since the beginning of the 1990s, the association has begun to work to save the authentic Karakachan dog and the other two breeds of Karakachans - the sheep and the horse which were almost completely destroyed during socialism. There is the main herd of original Karakachan sheep, thanks to whose creation the breed was saved from extinction. This is a unique animal that reminds its appearance of its wild ancestors rather than domestic sheep breeds. A herd of the Kalofer long-haired goat was also set up to preserve some of its most typical representatives. The fun photo sessionwith the best representatives of the breeds is also awaiting you with the unique degustation of the bio food products, produced by traditional authentic technology.

All this happens in a Bulgarian village Vlahi, which is perched on the slopes of two rivers - Vlahinska and Kosovska. You will be struck by breathtaking Alpine-like landscapes, and unique, bizarre rock formations rising above the last houses of the village. And with the flora and fauna you will get to know a lot closer because we will take you to the Center of Large Predators, where hospitable hosts will introduce you to its inhabitants.
