Your site returns 404 http code for those pages although they are displayed correctly:
http://www.xml-sitemaps.com/http-headers-viewer.html?op=http-headers-viewer&go=1&pageurl=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.imoti24.bg%2FFor-sale-Agricultural-Land-Burgas-Sunny-beach-resort-247932-2.html&se=xmlsitemaps&submit=View
With 404 code the pages will not be indexed by search engines, that's why they are not included in sitemap.

is there an oppurtunity to add those pages in sitemap ?
because those pages use error 404 file...to be displayed...
i really need them to be displayed in sitemap.

All links in sitemap.xml are urlencoded, that's why they are looking like that.

i also noticed, that in html the links are working fine, so only problem is xml...it seems like generator is doing double utf8_encode there.

The links in xml sitemap are in UTF8 charset, you should just submit sitemap to Google to make sure that it's parsed correctly.
