The transformation of Velingrad into all-year round Spa destination
Anita Valentinova, source: horemag.bg, 18.11.2008
Basic steps for this purpose are the construction of sport equipment and attractions. Jundola is one of the main resorts in Bulgaria, but the short snow-retention and low altitude stop its development. For this reason, Municipalities Velingrad and Belovo unite for the fulfillment of common project in the area of Belmeken Peak. The project includes the construction of sport equipment. Another accent is the building of winter sports equipment on the mountain peak Sjutka, which is the second highest in Rhodopes Mountain (2186m) and there the snow-retention is approximately 5 months a year. The restoration of the most impressive Bulgaria karst spring, Kleptusa Lake which is a symbol of Velingrad is among prime tasks. Municipality Velingrad will offer hunting tourism, eco tourism and mountain bike-riding so as to widen its choice of tourist products. Belmeken Dam Lake and Batak Lake are also among the landmarks which will be made more popular. Money is allocated for the development of historical tourism, as a fixed amount of the money is allocated to the exploration and revelation of some old medieval churches.
