Chekerica State Game Farm is situated in the flat Plovdiv field, 22 km northeast from the City of Plovdiv, nearby Trakiya Highway and 150 km away from the capital City of Sofia.

The hunting area of 2100 hectares borders to the west the lower stream of Stryama river. The area is flat, with variation above the sea level of 150 to 170 m.

Chekerica has two hunting lodges. The residence comprises 1 apartment and 3 double rooms, with separate WC, a hall – dining-room with a fireplace and a kitchen. There are 4 more double rooms in the other lodge.

The customers and the persons accompanying them, on request, are offered a visit to one of the oldest monasteries in Bulgaria – the Bachkovski monastery, near the Monastery of Sveti Kirik, a walk in the architectural town-museum of old Plovdiv and others. Ecotourism and photo hunting are available as well.

Mainly small game is under the care of the farm. The average temperature, maintained for almost 220 days in the year above 10 degrees, guarantees favourable development of the game stock and the survival of the young. Due to its characteristics, the region is a natural breeding farm of pheasants, partridges, wood pigeons, quails and turtledoves, roe deer and hares.

The average trophy qualities of the deer are about 350 gr., whereby for the period of 10 years there are 197 acquired. The record for the farm is 570 gr. Until now, the trophies from deer have won 2 golden, 5 silver and 10 bronze medals.
