Thanks to local people who support EQ’s fundraising efforts, young clients of the Ruse complex spent several days on the Shoumen plateau – an area drenched in ancient history.
They experienced the beauty of Bulgarian nature and explored the early history of the Bulgarian state.
The adventure starts with a visit to the Madara Horseman that represents the figure of a knight triumphing over a lion carved into a 100-m-high cliff. The surrounding area provides ample opportunity for cave exploration and enables children to drink in the spectacle of a rock ampitheatre used ceremonially by the ancient Thracians.
A Visit to town was combined with patriotic visits to the monument “Founders of the Bulgarian State” and the famous Shoumen Fortress followed by a trip to the zoo. Then came the exploration of the second Bulgarian capital – Veliki Preslav – where the children visited the museum and remains of the ancient city and stared in awe at the plaque of Tsar Simeon the Great.
A huge debt of gratitude is owed to our two teenage volunteers Sveti and Stella who coordinated the games, the art workshops, disco and talent contest – a welter of new experiences that will provide long-lasting memories and seal friendships.
Once again, we should thank those friends and supporters of EQ whose generosity enables us to make the summer camp an annual fixture. representing the figure of a knight triumphing over a lion, is carved into a 100-m-high cliff
