Rich Spa Hotel is built in a unique collaboration between man-made with much love and the unique century-old pine forest in which the hotel was built. We constantly take care of and ennoble our unique park - we plant trees, create streams, outdoor fitness, the most favorite children's playground in the city is with us… And of course we gave all people a unique icon of the Blessed Virgin.
Here you can enjoy the clean Rhodope air, eat a delicious dessert from Garden of Rich to relax around the artificial cool streams… Our park is a real attraction for kids - the many entertainment attractions for children are well maintained and diverse. During the summer season we even have a great clown who entertains the children… Welcome and enjoy the peace and beauty in the heart of Velingrad…
The beginning of this interesting story is more than 20 years ago. We can call it a dream come true or a fulfilled promise.
In the process of building a mineral pool, the owner Zlatko Zlatanov met with the oldest plumber at the time of Velingrad - Bai Georgi Kochev. The waters of three mineral springs gush on the place. Bai Georgi shares that this place is sacred and that it was revered by the Thracians, and later by the Christians during the Roman Empire. Zlatko Zlatanov promises that one day he will build an icon of the Holy Mother of God to preserve his holiness.
Where !? Where is the place !? At the same moment, thunder fell up in the park between two pines.
- Here is your place, said Georgi Kochev. "HE showed it to you."
The scar of this thunder remains to this day.
On August 15, 2010, on the feast of the Assumption of the Blessed Virgin Mary in the park next to the Rich Spa Hotel, the Orthodox chapel-icon THE MOST HOLY VIRGIN-WIDE HEAVEN was consecrated.
The only embossed icon of the Holy Mother of God in the Balkans.
This work is a donation from the family of Mr. Zlatanov for the citizens and guests of Velingrad.
