House Djambazki - keeping the tradition alive!
   "Each place around Govedartsi keeps the memory of past times, whispers old legends and sagas. There are signs of Thracians and slavics, here were the wars of Tzar Ivan Shishman and Samuil, here grew the Bulgarian words of Paisii and his followers. The nearly situated Rila Monastery, an everburning beacon in the dark ages of the yoke, was a stronghold for the Bulgarians and the Bulgarian spirit. Rila Mountain was mother of many rebels' bands and leaders - Malio, Gjula, Chakar. The people sang songs about them..."
 Dimitar Mazganov, teacher in Govedartsi
