landmarks

  • "The Pierced Stone" or as the locals call this rock formation - the Doll - is considered a cult object, which used to be a primitive ancient observatory. In a vertical trapezoid-shaped rock a special opening is hewn by a human hand. It is positioned in such a manner that the sun stays in the opening at equinox. A similar tradition and affinity  to construct such stone sanctuaries have already been seen in the ancient Thracian culture. Therefore, it is considered that prior to the settlement of the Proto-Bulgarians in these lands the "Pierced Stone" was "used" by the Thracians to serve their cult to the Sun. Since this natural phenomenon is unique for its form and importance it is included in the Bulgaria's protected areas list.
  • Rock monasteries were revealed in the areas Chekaritza and Chesnova Polyana located few kilometers away from the village. Most interesting of them are the so called Chushtkara monastery - where some grafitti have been revealed, and the St. George monastery where an inscription in Greek has been preserved.
  • Located in the village itself is a medieval old-Bulgarian monastery named after Our Lady. It houses a unique collection of 138 utensils -  the richest collection in the country.
  • Near Ravna is located the Ereka spring and the salty baths of Provadiya, which have no equivalent in the country. The only baths with similar effect are the ones in Karlovi Vari - Czech Republic.
