The tavern called Ribarnika near Dobrinishte is famous for the fact that you can catch the trout from the three fishponds, sit in the shade and eat delicious food. Ribarnika means the fishpond.

See ….

…. The fish are caught from the three fishponds;

…. Cozy yard with flowers and booths with sheds;

…. Inside the restaurant has a traditional style. 

Feel ….

…. People are kind, quick with service;

…. The toilets, male and female, are cramped and too narrow.

Hear ….

…. Folk music from the Pirin region of course;

…. Noise of running water refreshing the fishponds.

Movie watching time: 1:09 min.

Special thanks to the ethno-jazz group Outhentic for the soundtrack to the movie. I highly recommend both their albums Transparent Album and YesToday. They are my favorite pleasant background for relaxation.
