VisitBulgaria.net, July 19, 2013

The only completely restored roman fortress “Tsari Mali Grad”, located on the St. Spas hill over Belchin, near Samokov will be opened for tourists on July 19th, announced the mayor of the town Vladimir Georgiev.
Until recently the fortress known as Tsari Mali Grad existed only in folklore legends. Archaeologists did not know its exact location but treasure hunters managed to find it. 
For 5 or 6 months almost the whole fortress wall has been rebuilt. Archaeologists say the fortress served to protect the iron ore in the region. It is also situated on an ancient crossroads.
