The Virgin's step

bogorodichna stupka

Located 1.5 km from the center of Stara Zagora Mineral Baths in a northern direction, the beautiful natural phenomenon called "Virgin Mary's Step" continues to attract believers and non-believers from all over Bulgaria. Legend has it that this place is a sanctuary associated with various pagan religious rites from thousands of years ago. 

After the adoption of Christianity in these lands, the area became a holy place. The myth of the "Virgin Mary's Step" was born because of the extremely strong bioenergy field and the bizarre hollow above the rocks, resembling a human footprint in which the water never dries up. A small chapel called the Nativity of the Mother of God was built on the site.
