THE CROSS FOREST - HOLY CROSS DAY
THE STRENGTH OF FAITH
There is a belief that the sky opens exactly in the night of the Holy Cross Day (Krastovden). In this precise holy night God and the Mother of God pour their blessing over those that have come to bow and express their love and faith. That is why there are thousands of pilgrims that sit on the lawns under the star and wait for the miracle of healing to happen. Everybody says that a huge energy and strength is felt on this place and that one feels somehow elevated and the existence of some other dimension.
The cross forest (Krastova Gora) is located in the central part of the Rhodope Mountains and is one of the largest Christian Centres in Bulgaria because it is believed that part of the True Cross has been buried there. It includes the church „Pokrov na Sveta Bogoroditsa” (Protection of Our Most Holy Lady Theotokos) from which along a lane to the top of the hill there is a complex of chapels dedicated to the 12 Apostles.
