I briefly visited Zheravna many years ago and so after a couple of weeks of getting on top of the gardens, we decided to head out on a day trip to see the museum town. What should have been around an hour and half’s drive from our house, turned into a bit of an adventure as we decided to try the scenic route, winding up the hills behind Sliven. Un-beknown to us and through a lack of sign posts, the road had actually collapsed several months back and after passing a couple of large piles of gravel in the road (dumped for future road repairs we thought) and going around a few rock slides, we got to a point where it was impassable and half the road had slipped off the side of the hill. So it was back down the way we had come and back to the main road for the longer way there.
