Shiroka Luka

Shiroka Luka is a small village, but it is an important historical site. It still preserves the traditional Rhodope architecture and culture. The village is located at 1060 meters elevation in the valley of the Shirokolashka River. Shiroka Luka is situated at the foot of the Rhodope Mountain and Chernatitza, 24 kilometers away from Smolyan, 22 kilometers from Devin and only 12 kilometers from the popular ski resort of Pamporovo. While staying in the village you will go back to the Renaissance period of Bulgaria with the typical houses, small paved streets and arched bridges. You will also get to know the Rhodopean traditions in the songs, speech and typical dishes of the area.

Shiroka Luka is now an architectural reserve with 90 official monuments from the time of the Bulgarian National Revival. Most of the monuments are houses which still preserve the typical architecture and the oldest ones were built in the beginning of the 19th century.

One of the most attractive buildings in the village is the Town hall, called Sgurov Konak. It is now home to the Ethnographic Museum which presents customs and life during the Revival Period. Another magnificent building is the church Uspenie Bogorodichno. It was built in 1834 only for 40 days and has amazing decorations and architecture. In the village is situated the most famous folk music school in Bulgaria.

There are also rock phenomena in the area, called Glavata (the head) and Momata (the maiden) and you can also visit Liatnata gora (summer forest). Through Shiroka Luka pass many tourist roads around the Rhodope Mountain. From the village you can climb to the peaks of Turlata, Goliam and Malak Perelik (Big and Small Perelik), Shirokolashki snejnik and more.

Pesponedelnik is a typical folklore carnival which is carried out every first week of March. The tradition stems from some pagan believes and represents the creation of the world. The dancers wear typical for some places in Bulgaria costumes and masks resembling beasts and their dances are believed to scare away the evil spirits. The dancers are called Koukeri and they also dance to bring health and fertility to the land.
