Mryanskoto Kale fortress (ruins) is situated about 11 kilometers north of Strelcha on the right bank of the river Luda Yana. Originally it was built as a fortified residence of a Thracian king from the odrisi tribe who lived in the ІV century BC. It is believed that later it used to be a Roman fortress (II-III c. AD), which patrolled the road through Sredna Gora mountain. It is located in the woods on a hard to access mountain hill of the Sredna Gora mountain. The area of the fortification is 200 sq.m. and it is at least a two-storey height. The walls are made up of large stone blocks arranged in a chess-board order, weighing about 1 ton each .
