Former border check-point – Chavdar village


This is a preserved former border patrol facility on the route to Toshkov grob area. The remains of the border metal fence could also still be seen. It is situated 2.6 km from Kemera and the asphalt road connecting Barutin and Chavdar villages.


The area also hosts the former border barracks “Cahvdar” and the so called “Sito” (the “Sieve”). This is an undulating line of the border, which was used as an escape point from Bulgaria in the past but most of these escapes proved impossible.
