Submerged Church from a Floating House Trip

This product is unavailable to book via TripAdvisor. Contact the supplier for availability.
USD 77.50
An interesting and new experience for people who love unusual things! We offer you to explore the incredible reservoir Zhrebchevo without leaving your accommodation! You will have the opportunity not only to enjoy the virgin beauty of the local scenery, to see the different landscapes, but also to touch the centuries-old history of the Submerged Church! And for lovers of fishing here are an ideal conditions!

We have prepared a more original way of moving - a floating house. The construction is 14 x 5 m in size.The house moves with the help of a boat engine, drives like a car and moves smoothly. This way you can enjoy the nature near the Jrebchevo Reservoir. The house has a bedroom, a living room, a dining room and a kitchen, as well as an upper deck with panoramic views.

We offer you to spend the night in the house (max occupancy - 5 people) or you can use it only for a walk in the reservoir for an hour and a half (minimum participants - 8 people) or to go fishing (hire an hour).
What to Expect
This is a typical itinerary for this product

Pass By: Little Rose Fields, Panicherevo 6172 Bulgaria

"Zhrebchevo" is a reservoir on the Tundja River. Its name comes from the village of Zhrebchevo remaining on its bottom (the old name is Atlari). It is located in a beautiful sub-mountain area. Its area is 25 km2, it is the fourth largest reservoir in Bulgaria.

Its construction began in 1964 and ended in 1969 when it was put into operation. At the bottom of the reservoir are also the former villages of Zapalnya and Dolno Panicherevo.

The reservoir has many sleeves with fishing-friendly seats. As the water from the reservoir is used for irrigation, it is drained in the summer, which determines the seasonal character of the fishery (perch, redcurrant, catfish). A pike is also found in the mouth of the reservoir on the Tundzha River.

In the north-eastern part of it is the church of St. Ivan Rilski, which is the only remains from the village of Zapalnya. The temple was named after the Bulgarian saint Ivan Rilski - the heavenly patron of the Bulgarian people. The temple was erected in 1895 on the site of a church from the 4th to 9th centuries by the locals, due to its location on a hill, the water was unable to swallow it entirely.

The church is not under water all year round, in the summer when the reservoir level is low, the church fully appears on land and can be reached by foot.
