Summary/Abstract: This communication presents the results of an anthropological expedition in the region of the peaks Kalin and Polich, Rila Mountain, carried out in 2015. Several quazi-megalithic rock structures as well as an exotic ensemble of three specific cyclopic blocks are registered and commented. All sites have the potential to represent prehistoric anthropologically relevant monuments, but this statement can be proved only by means of further interdisciplinary examination, especially by means of objective dating by physical methods (OSL dating). Regardless of the archaeological results the rock structures described here are interesting at least as attractive tourist destinations in the area.
