Badevtsi is a small village in the Elena Balkan, located southwest of the town of Elena, only 6 km from the village of Sredni Kolibi. Its houses with red roofs and whitewashed walls are picturesquely spread along the ridges of the round hills and offer amazing views and a feeling of spaciousness and infiniteness. The area is rich in karst waters. Badevtsi itself is a part of the catchment area of the Yovkovtsi Dam. The Badevskite springs are situated in its area and they are piped to provide water to the town of Elena. It is believed that the village originated from Thracians and Romans times, as evidenced by numerous facts. Six Thracian burial mounds are found in its territory, and many of the surrounding areas have names of Roman and Thracian origin. There are remnants of the ancient road connecting the valley of the Danube to the Aegean Sea that can be seen near the village. According to studies, the road came from the ancient village of Nove near Svishtov, passed through other towns, Arbanassi, Badevtsi and continued south and after Stara Zagora and Plovdiv it reached the Thracian city of Abdera. In Ottoman times the coffers to Constantinople were conveyed along this road, so locals called its remains Haznarski Pat (The Coffers Road), Druma or the Old road. Interesting cultural landmark of the village is the community centre Nadezhda, founded in 1942, where in the past theatre plays were performed and movies were projected. Kilifarevo and the Kilifarevo Monastery are nearby and they are convenient to visit, located 15 km from Badevtsi. The revival town of Elena is just 20 km away with its beautiful churches, museums, ethnographic exhibitions and monuments. The home of Ilarion Makariopolski, the Clock Tower, and the Daskalolivnitsa are among the popular ones. The distance from the village of Badevtsi to the Yovkovtsi Dam is 7 km. This is one of the largest reservoirs in Bulgaria, appealing to fans of fishing tourism, water sports, but also for all those who just love nature. There are several nice small hotels in Badevtsi, cozy guesthouses and mostly comfortable holiday cottages which offer the perfect combination of modern comfort and coziness.
