Village of Stoikite, The Rhodopes MountainThe small village is situated 5km south of Shiroka Luka in the western part of the Rhodope Mountains. Scattered among 5 different hamlets and has preserved the authenticity of a real Rhodopean village and the Bulgarian national traditions and culture, the village of Stoykite attracts thousand of tourists and offers wonderful opportunities for rest and recreation in the atmosphere of the long past times.

In the village one can see one of the most interesting Rhodopean churches - "St. St. Peter and Pavel".
From the yard of the church St. Nedelya you have a breathtaking view of the landscape looking toward Turlata Peak. Such a marvelous view can rarely be found anywhere else in the Rhrodopes.
Above the village is the natural site called "Chernoka" where a group of 300+ year old Black pine trees can be seen.
