On the footsteps of the Bulgarian Prophet Vanga – Private day tour
Baba Vanga is considered to be the greatest prophet of the millennium. She was a very sensual woman who perceived the world differently and saw things that were invisible to everyone else.
Before she died she predicted the history of the world and humanity.
On this day we head south from Sofia to visit and feel the energy places associated with the life of the prophetess and to learn more about her gift and strengths. We depart for the famous area called “Rupite” where Vanga chose to accept her visitors for a good reason. This village is believed to have a very strong positive cosmic energy, which can be found only in two other locations in the world—Argentina and Indonesia.
Rupite is a destination that attracts visitors from all over the world not only because it is connected with the famous prophetess, but also because of its unique location at the bottom of the ancient volcano Kojuh nearby which are situated hot mineral springs.
