History:

The ski jumping hill at the village Chernia Kos (literary "black merle"), located south east of Sofia on the foothills of Vitosha mountains, was constructed from 1930 to 1933 and was the first large ski jumping hill of Bulgaria. The inauguration was celebrated on January 30, 1935 and attended not only by 20,000 spectators, but also Prince Kyrill. A few days later the open Bulgarian championships were held there - attended by 25,000 spectators! Both competitions were coined by the Austrian guest jumpers, in particular Ebi Galeitner, who won both and set the hill records.
After World War II, the K61 and K25 hills were even covered with plastic mattings. With the construction of the larger ski jumping complex in Borovets, which hosted then the ski jumping events of the Winter Universiades at Sofia in 1983 and 1989, the ski jumps at Chernia Kos were given up in the end of 1970's. Nowadays, Vitosha mountains are still a popular destination, but in winter it serves only as an alpine ski ressort.

only 1492 so far...

Sorry Zbal, this one is ID 1500, but there are a few missing IDs, so it is only the ski jumping facility no. 1492 (as you can see on the "ski jumps" overview site).
You still have to be a bit patient until no. 1500 is coming :-)
