Even nowadays everybody who comes to these lands is touched by the richness of Strandja's nature, bows down before the monuments of the ancient culture, and is fascinated by the spiritual heritage, preserved in the customs, traditions, folklore and mythology of the local people. Strandja is not a beaten tourist path but it offers a unique and beautiful tourist adventure.
