Param(o)un(t) revisited

September 14, 2009

Passing by Param(o)un(t) and Erma River Gorge in the serene tranquility of west Bulgaria country side, I couldn’t help stopping by the centuries-old oak tree and see how it looks a year later. Magnificent as I’ve always known it.

An awesome 600+ centuries-old oak tree in the small village of Nasalevtsi (some 10 kms away from the town Tran). Under the magnificent shade of the oak tree is the Church “Nativity of Our Most Holy Lady, the Theotokos”.

And up the slope of the hill at the top where the rock can be seen (known by the local people as Щърби камик [The Clipped Stone] passes the border between Bulgaria and Serbia. One of those little-known, but peaceful & most relaxing nature spots in Bulgaria.
