Itinerary

The fame of the musician Orpheus spread over the territories of Thrace and Greece. On his wedding day, his wife Eurydice was bitten by a snake and died. He embarked on a long journey to the Underworld, the kingdom of Hades, to save his beloved and bring her back to the world of the living. With his sad songs, he captured not only Hades but also his wife Persephone, who asked the king to make an exception. The king of the dead agreed on one condition – Orpheus must not turn to see Eurydice while they were within his kingdom. The singer broke the stipulation – he wanted to make sure Eurydice was following him, he wanted to see her face – the next moment her shadow disappeared.
Orpheus was left alone in the world of the living. With his music and poems, Orpheus became a reformer for his time, creating a doctrine. The Orpheus Mysteries competed with the Dionysus.
Тoday the Rhodopes are an attractive place for archaeologists, adventurers, poets, wine lovers, people looking for love, and harmony of nature.
