The history of the village of Sitovo dates back to the 2nd millennia BC when Thracian tribes first settled in the area. In the middle of the 5th century BC, during the time of the Odrysian kingdom, the Thracian tribes of the Bessi - one of the most combative peoples among the Thracians, settled here.

Our route takes us to the Thracian fortress “Shtutgrad”.

It is the guardian of the so-called “Sitovo inscription”, and ancient inscription carved into the side of a cliff that has stumped historians since its discovery, it meaning remaining an enigma. The Thracians believed that this area had a powerful energy field, which is why they chose it as the site of one of the most mysterious Thracian sanctuaries.

Located between two hills, also known as “The Sun Hill” and “The Moon Hill”, this Bessi sanctuary was the place their priests used as a “door to the Cosmos” and came into contact with higher beings and the Universal Consciousness, from which they received esoteric knowledge.
