Ovchartsi Things to Do

    Goritsa waterfall is located about 10 minutes walking distance from the village of Ovchartsi. There is an eco trail leading to a place with a good view of the waterfall. The trail does not reach the waterfall itself.
    Acording to a legend Goritsa there was a maid living in the village at the time of the Turkish Yoke. She preferred jumping into river and committing suicide rather than being 'captured' by the local bay.
    The height of the waterfall is 39m.

    The washing machines built of these type are common for areas in Bulgaria where a river flows. The water power is used to wash big and heavy blankets, bedspreads, etc. which cannot be washed at home.
    On the sign on one of the pictures it was written the local name of such washing machines. In Sofia area it is called 'tepavitsa'.
