Some believe they are daughters of the Thracian goddess Bendis...Also known as Samodiva, Samovila is the most beautiful creature of our legends... Samovilas are immortal keepers of the nature. They look like very young beautiful women, with long, light blonde hair, and very pale skin, dressed with almost transparent white long dress made from moon light. This magic dress let them fly without wings and gives them magic powers.

Samovilas do not like humans much. They hide in the deepest forests, and appear only at night.  Usually they fly in groups of three, seven, or twelve sisters and in the  deepest hour of the night they like to sing and dance. Magic flowers are said to blossom where their feet touch the ground. Legend says their dance is enchanting - their dancing delicate bodies, graceful movements,  magical  voices are so beautiful, that people who hear them loose their mind. 




Samovila is located in the beautiful Rila mountains, just outside the village of Govedartzi.
