- Hiking and Walking
Favorite thing: I like the walk in from where you've parked the car alongside the river and up to the dam. Then the lake itself. There are some very old signs warning against taking photos. I seem to escaped:)
Fondest memory: The coolness inside Sveti Andrei -- the views -- the frescoes in the church.
Don't miss the small things ...
Favorite thing: It's fun to see so many people enjoy the beauty of Matka Canyon and to share in that enjoyment.
Fondest memory: Poppies in the rocks seen on the walk in ... This picture was taken in late May 1998.
