A natural attraction in the Northwest is the spring with healing water near the village of Balyuvitsa. Legend has it that the well was called the “Kelavo Well”. The name dates back to Turkish times. People say that there is a lake under the well, which is very deep, but so far no one has been able to reach it.

Another legend says that water passes through golden veins located in the rock and this gives it healing properties. People say that water most often heals eyes and skin rashes. They say, that they are witnessed the healing of many people.

The healing well has existed for centuries, but in the 70s of the last century, it was buried in an earthquake, then the miracle happened and the water flowed again. The magic, however, is that whenever you go there and want something good to happen to you, you have to pray.
A 250-meter eco-trail takes visitors to the well where grateful people have placed icons with the image of the Virgin Mary and Jesus Christ. The eco-trail takes you through pristine nature along a small river. The birds are singing and playful bunnies are walking in front of you. At the end of the village and the beginning of the eco-trail is an old church built in 1987, which welcomes visitors to the well, and next to it rises preserved cell school from the same year.
