BLOCKS - SLABS - PLATES - CUT-TO-SIZE
Limestone is widely used in architecture and various landmarks across the world, including the Great Pyramid and the Giza Complex in Egypt, are made of limestone. Many buildings in Kingston, Ontario, Canada were constructed with limestone and it is nicknamed the 'Limestone City'. The Limestone House in DIFC, Dubai is another lucent landmark.
Slabs made of Vratsa limestone are used for the cladding of the Cathedral Temple “St. Alexander Nevsky” in Sofia, our National Palace of Culture (Sofia), The Sofia University “St. Kliment Ohridski”, the Court of Justice in Sofia, Our first Mall, and many other landmark buildings in Bulgaria.

weather conditions, make it a dependable architectural resource.

OUR VRATZA LIMESTONE QUARRY LOCATION
“Within 120 km North of the capital Sofia, through the Iskar Canyon, one can witness the entire Phanerozoic History of the Earth. In the town of Mezdra, the iridium layer of the Cretaceous-Paleogene Boundary was formed by the collision of the Earth with the Chicxulub asteroid, the Meteor that killed the Dinosaurs.”
