  • The Town Square

    Belogradchik Things to Do

    This is the central most of the town. At their center is a small fountain and area for parking cars. The square is not very attractively done and the center is not so developed. I saw only few shops, restaurants, bistros, supermarket, and one hotel. Buildings for public use like the town hall, library, museum, are located here but not so obviously...

    Vratsa Things to Do

    This amazing place is situated in Stara Planina Mountain, just next to the city of Vratsa. It is only 5 min far by car but local people go often on foot as it seems to be a pleasant walk, especially in the hot summer. The massive rocks are really impressive and the highest reaches a height of 450m. In the past there used to be a Medieval Fortress...

  • Ledenika Cave

    Vratsa Things to Do

    I love caves and I’m working on going through as many as I can and up to now I’ve seen a lot of them in Bulgaria. Each one is unique with something and has its own beauty. I’m starting this review like this as I think that Ledenika is one of the most beautiful I’ve been in. Its length is about 300m and has 10 halls. The first one is very close to...

    Chiprovtsi Warnings and Dangers

    There is No Mountain Rescue service in the area!!! Local people are used to the nature and the way they evaluate the risks and injures is different than the western one. We had an accident there. Happily everything finished more-less fine, thanks to the efforts and help of the local Doctor Iordanov and Montana Emergency Medical Service.

    Chiprovtsi Off The Beaten Path

    Chiprovtsi waterfall is one of the Nature beauties in the area you shouldn’t miss! There is a comfortable ‘black’ road heading south of Chiprovtsi, which would lead you to a meadow with a spring on it. Good place to rest situated somewhere about the middle of the whole way's length. The same road continues a bit later and then turns into a mountain...

Nowadays (since...
