The main route follows the course of the Devinska River, but several pathways from it (built subsequently) lead away from the main path to hidden sights in the area, which are definitely worth paying attention to.

Rock sanctuary „Saint Mina“ near the village of Mechkul
We spent the first April’s weekend in the western skirts of the Pirin Mountains. We were staying in Stara Kresna village and travelling along the old road at the foot of the mountain. It led us to the rock sanctuary near the village of Mechkul. The sanctuary is a huge complex of big stones with strange shapes, perched above the Kresnen Gorge of the Struma River. The locals call it the Stone City. More information about it you can find in this article.
Vitaleta – the business card of Tuscany
When you hear Tuscany what is the first image that comes to mind? Winding country roads bordered by vineyards, olive groves and pointed cypresses lining the way to ancient villages and cantinas? Yes, this is exactly the typical Tuscan landscape. However, there is one place that almost everyone unconsciously imagines without even having heard of it. This is exactly what the small chapel of Madonna di Vitaletta is like. Surrounded by two rows of cypresses, it brings together many elements that are typical of this area – solitary olive trees, golden hills, beautiful architecture and that mixture of beauty and melancholy that Tuscany embodies so well. Despite its small size and location in the middle of the fields, the chapel has become an important feature of the Val d’Orcia and one of the most famous not only in Italy but also in the world.
