WHERE IN BULGARIA ARE YOU? © Anthony Georgieff

Perched on a hill right on the Bulgarian-Turkish border this 18-meter-tall Medieval tower called Bukelon has stayed in a permanent state of dereliction since it was abandoned, in the 13th or the 14th centuries.

Legend has it that the the Latin Emperor Baldwin of Flanders, who lost a battle to the Bulgarian King Kaloyan, spent a few days here when he was captured, awaiting his removal to the Bulgarian capital, Tarnovo. Modern Bulgaria does not boast many Medieval towers of this sort, but it does have a few – and they are fascinating to explore as they are almost unknown and generally overlooked.
