The gorges of Trun and the creation of the yoghurt

Average, there are some steep areas 40%
Do you know what is Lactobacillus bulgaricus? This is a specific bacteria, lives in local dairy products. With its qualities can reduce the cancer cells and aging. It was discovered for the first time in this region where we are going  – Trun.
The production of yogurt has deep traditions – historically there have always been people in these lands. Thracians, Romans, even Crusaders have settled here. Come to this adventure, where we will see a well-sanctuary used by the ancients and the gorge of the Erma River, one of the national treasures of the country!
The guide will lead you through a journey that will tell you how the Thracians produced the first yogurt, how the area was dotted with Roman villas, how in the Middle Ages Trun was an important crossroad, how the Bulgarians fought for the freedom of the area  and how the Bulgarian scientist Stamen Grigorov found the famous bacteria.

The transfer from Sofia to the village of Gurlo is an hour and a half. There begins our first walking tour – to the well-sanctuary. At the end of the village, we will see an old Latin cemetery and one micro-reservoir. The walk is steep, but it’s short – about an hour in both directions.

Then we head to Trun, a city rich in resources. Transfer – 30 minutes. We’ll stop the car at the end of the city and we’ll go to the gorge. Many legends exist around this place. The walk here is surrounded by two options – easy and difficult and it is about 2 hours.

Transfer to Sofia – 2 hours.
