History and teachings
The Belogradchik Fortress is situated at a distance of 1.5 km from the town of Belgradchik, among the renowned Belogradchik rocks.
The fortress has existed since Roman times. In the 1st – 3rd century AD, the Romans built roads in the new provinces of the empire on the Balkan peninsula, as well as fortresses to guard them.
The mission of the Belogradchik Fortress was to control the road from the town of Ratsiaria (near today’s village of Archar in the region of Vidin). The Romans constructed the highest part of the fortress, called The Citadel.
There are remains of another fortress at a distance of a few meters from it – Latin Stronghold, which served as an assisting fortification.
Upon the separation of the Roman Empire in 395, the Balkan lands entered within the borders of Byzantium. At the end of 7th century, the Belogradchik Fortress fell within the territory of the newly created Bulgarian state.
