Situated in the majestic and mystical Rhodope mountain, the village of Kovatchevica is one of the villages with preserved architecture and is declared as an architectural and historical reserve. The history of the village is kept by the people still living there. You can really sense it while walking on the paved streets, talking to the people there. And not only that...

Dessie, who was with me when we visited Kovatchevica knew she has actual origins from the village. So we met this old lady and while talking about the history of the village and Dessie's origins, she invited us for a cup of coffee. With the coffee, the old lady showed us an old, big book, describing the family trees of all the major family names originating from Kovatchevica. One of those families was Banevi. The family tree of Dessie Baneva. It was incredible to just stand aside, looking at how one surprising visit led to a discovery of your own history. A day to remember.
