Tsigumilkata locality

is situated in the Kozarevski Balkan and is a mountain pasturage scattered with huge blocks of granite rocks that seem deliberately piled on top of one another by superhuman strength. According to legend Krali Marko is venturing here and is piling those rocks on purpose for protection against the Black Arab.
