Only 60 miles away from Sofia, at an altitude of 370 m - the town of Vratsa is one of the most picturesque towns in Bulgaria, nestling in the foothills of `Vrachanska Planina` with the Leva River calmly crossing the town and with fearful rocks overhanging the roofs. Few Bulgarian cities have a history passing through thousands of years and several historical ages! Vratsa is one of them. Situated in the Balkan Mountain (Stara Planina) itself among nature blessed by the Lord and amazing with its beauty, `Vratsa is a place created by the Spirit, where knowledge and art are flourishing so other areas of our country can use them too`. This was written by `Tzarigradski Vestnik`(Tzarigrad`s newspaper) in 1858, in Tzarigrad-today`s city of Istanbul.
Vratsa is an ancient city found by ancient Thracians. Vratsa was called Valve (`door of a fortress`) by the Romans due to narrow passage where the main Gate of the city fortress was located. Nowadays, this passage is the symbol of Vratsa and is presented on the Town`s Coat of Arms.
After the fall of Rome, Vratsa became part of the Eastern Roman Empire (Byzantium).
At the end of the 6th century AD, Vratsa was populated by the South Slavic tribes. Even if they came from Pannonia and Dacia on the north, the town remained under Byzantine rule.
In the 7th century, the Bulgarians and the Slavs found the Bulgarian State and the Slavic Vratsa became part of it. The city grew into important strategic location because of its proximity to the South State border. The name of the city was changed from Valve to the Slavic Vratitsa, which has the same meaning and is the source of the modern name. Vratsa became famous for its goldsmith`s and silversmith`s production and trade, high-quality earthenware and military significance.
In the 8th century, the Bulgarian army captured Sofia, which led to the decreasing of Vratsa`s importance because of the better strategic position of Sofia, its more developed economy and larger size. But Vratsa was again key for the resistance against the Byzantine, Serbian and Magyar invasions in the Middle Ages.
The whole area is well known as one of the purest in the country with its mountains protected by the international association UNESCO. National Park `Vratchanski Balkan` covers all the mountains surrounding the town of Vratsa. Because of the specific relief and geological structure of the rocks, there are more than 500 discovered caves.
Here is one of the biggest and most attractive caves in Bulgaria. Its name is Ledenika. Formed in Vratsa Mountain, 16 km west of Vratsa it is approximately 300 m in length. The cave has 10 halls adapted for the coming visitors. It is ornate with stalactites, stalagmites, stalactones, rock draperies and waterfalls. Ledenika is the most frequently visited Bulgarian cave. The highest point of the Ledenika cave is called the Seventh Sky and it is within the capacity of the most ambitious tourists. The Ledenika cave was opened for the first time in 1961. In 1962 it was proclaimed for a natural landmark.
There are few ski resorts in the area attracting
increasingly more tourists every year. The town of Vratsa is very
popular with its climbing and paragliding as well. In close proximity
there are about 20 eco-footpaths crossing the whole mountain very
appropriate for mountain biking and walking. The mountains surrounding
Vratsa District provide perfect spots for hunting, while the various
water resources such as lakes, dams, and rivers offer ideal fishing
activities as well. There are several springs in the region offering
unforgettable spa experiences.
