The Belogradckik Rocks - BULGARIA - UNESCO TENTATIVE
This is my first postcard from Bulgaria, three beautiful pictures of the strange rock formations that, some say,will soon become a UNESCO World Heritage Site, for now is on the Tentative List - thank you Karie for this card and for your words. This postcard took 15 days to arrive!
The rocks of Belogradchik are rock sculptures, situated west of the town of Belogradchik, in the fore hills of the western Balkan mountain range. They contain groups of rock figures resembling people, animals, fortresses, pyramids or different objects with imposing sizes - from a few meters to several dozens of meters.
