Description

The village of Bachevo is located 6 km north of Razlog, in the southern slopes of Rila Mountain. It is a spa and climatic resort of local importance. Northeast of the village flows the river of Sedrach going then into Glazne River to the north of Banya Village. Bachevo hosts four horse ranches and an adventure house.

The most popular event is the holiday of Todorovden (the so-called ‘Horse Easter’) including a ritual ceremony of feeding horses and a traditional race (‘Kushia’). This is the holiday local people love and respect the most since the horse has been their most precious animal for centuries.
