Hut Dobrila

Dobrila hut is located on a saddle pasture between the peaks of Ambaritsa and Dobrila at an elevation of 1750 m. It is built by the tourists from Sopot town in 1928. Later it burned and was rebuilt in stone in 1932 – 1933. Likely the peak of the same name, it is named after the legendary hero and rebel against the Ottoman empire Dobril. A number of cabins were built in the region of this old hut in the seventies ad eighties, the constructions of massive concrete building also started, but it was never finished. All these constructions substantially corrupt the aesthetic value of the landscape in the region of Dobrila, which borders two of the most beautiful reserves in the Central Balkan – Steneto to the northwest and Stara Reka to the southeast.
