Beschreibung    English

Rashov dol is the place of the last battle of the April uprising.

Botev's company was a detachment of 205 guerilla fighters lead by the Bulgarian poet and revolutionary Hristo Botev. The company disembarked near Kozloduy, aiming to incite the local population into joining the April uprising. But at that time the uprising has already been brutally suppressed in other parts of the country and the company failed to reach its goal.

After Hristo Botev was killed on the 2nd of June 1876 the company broke up in chaos. A group of 10 revolutionaries lead by Georgi Apostolov headed for the Iskar river. Together with two local shepherd boys they were surrounded by the Turkish pursuers in a sheep pen in Rashov dol. That is where the last battle of the April uprising took place on the 3rd of June 1876. The rebels put up a fierce resistance but they were eventually overwhelmed and all killed.


Nowadays, the pen is restored as a historical monument. The cache is hidden just a few meters away from it. Usually, there aren't many muggles around but there is a notable exception - on the 3rd of June many people gather in Rashov dol. Reenactments of the battle are performed. If you visit the cache on this date, please be extra stealthy.
