It is not widely known but Skalitsa is famed for its healing stones, which are geographically positioned at a point where two magnetic fields cross. There is apparently only one other place on earth where this happens! Research has been made on the site along with media attention, all present evidence of the stones having healing properties for arthritis, rheumatism and various other related and unrelated ailments.
There have been two sets of film makers in the village in 2007, one film crew from Belgium the other from Hollywood USA, choosing Skalitsa for its magnificent setting on a raised rock base within the Thracian Plain. This was chosen over other Balken countries including Croatia, Romania and Former Republic of Czechoslovakia, the Skalitsian scenery could not be compared with!
