At first I was not oriented about which stone formation symbolized the horse rider and which one the Madonna with a child. I kept on pondering and tried to produce my own interpretations after I kept on analyzing my pictures afterwards. The artists who are displaying their drawings and paintings at the foot of the mountain showed another interpretations. At the end, I should say, build up your own imaginations. If you really want to visit Belogradchik because you feel like to witness it by yourself regardless of what the legend says; regardless which stone could be the” Madonna with a child” or the “Horse rider”…then you yourself can decide. I made up my own imaginations for this. For the other on-lookers this could be different. What counts is that you like the place and you are free of what you believe. But don´t let yourself be trapped.
the most interesting tourist trap must be, when you are standing in front of a rock-formation and some self-declared guide will tell you the rock looks like as if it is the 'Nun' and you think it msut be more something like Adam and Eve; disputes about the imagination and interpretation of the form of the rock can give you then a hard time to get your money back from the self-declared and certified interpretator of the rock formations...
