Bulgaria’s Must‑see Landmarks

Posted By : July/ 392 0

Bulgaria is one of the oldest countries in Europe and full of must‑see sights. Check some of them out here!


No. 1

The Rila Monastery

The Monastery of Saint Ivan of Rila, better known as the Rila Monastery, is the largest and most famous Eastern Orthodox monastery in Bulgaria. It is situated in the southwestern Rila Mountains, in the deep valley of the Rilska River. The monastery is named after its founder, the hermit Ivan of Rila (876‑946 AD), and houses around 60 monks.

@danflyingsolo

One of the most popular attractions in #Bulgaria is Rila Monastery – often a day trip from Sofia, but being in the snowy mountains, actually quicker to reach from Bansko. At its peak, over 200 monks would have lived in the 199 bedrooms here, although now only about 10 reside. Inscribed onto the #UNESCO world heritage list, the monastery days back to the 10th century, although it’s been attacked and destroyed over the years, most notably by the fire of the Ottomans, it’s always been rebuilt. Parts of it are off limits to day trippers, although there is a chance to spend the night staying in one of the basic and traditional rooms for the monks, which I reckon would have been pretty damn cool to do! 🇧🇬 #RilaMonastery#monastery#bulgarian

No. 2

Plovdiv’s Old Town

Plovdiv is the oldest living city in Europe and among the six oldest cities in the world. The Old Town is one of the most beautiful parts of the city, offering an impressive architectural and historical reserve. It combines ancient Roman and Bulgarian Revivalist architecture, and is included in UNESCO’s World Heritage tentative list.

No. 3

The Seven Rila Lakes

The Seven Rila Lakes are a group of glacial lakes, situated in the Rila Mountain, between 2,100 and 2,500 metres elevation above sea level. Each lake is named after its most characteristic feature.

The highest one is called Salzata (The Tear) because of its clear waters. The next one in height is named Okoto (The Eye) for its almost perfect oval form. Babreka (The Kidney) is the lake with the steepest shores. Bliznaka (The Twin) is the largest one by area. Trilistnika (The Trefoil) has an irregular shape and low shores. The shallowest lake is Ribnoto Ezero (The Fish Lake) and the lowest one is Dolnoto Ezero (The Lower Lake), where the waters that flow out of the other lakes form the Dzherman River.

Couleurs d’Automne en Bulgarie

Posted By : July/ 1749 0

L’automne annonce l’arrivée de l’Hiver et nous ravit de ses couleurs chaudes…

Les couleurs de l’automne offrent un fabuleux spectacle quand les feuilles des arbres passent du vert à l’or.

Ce changement de couleurs automnal est un vrai miracle de la nature.

Les couleurs s’enflamment et avec elles, la nature.

Cela nous donne envie de profiter de cette saison magique par de longues ballades dans les forêts de Bulgarie.

Pour peu que le soleil soit de la partie, alors, c’est un réel bonheur.
