Pchelina - Dam - PHDG008 - YES FRAME
Only one hour drive from Sofia, in a picturesque valley lays the Pchelina Dam. It was constructed in the 70s of 20th century, taking the place of the former village of Pchelina which today is covered by the waters of the dam. The area is a hidden jam that combines natural beauty with spiritual vibes and historic artefacts. During the construction of the dam many antique finds were discovered which proved that ancient communities developed here. On top of a high rock just above the water is situated the medieval temple of St. Yoan Letni. The church is thought to had been part of an ancient fortress that was destroyed in the Medievel times.
