    Hiking Highlight

    During the weekends in sunny day during the summer it is really overcrowded - don't go there at that time. Better to go there from Monday to Friday if you want to enjoy the whole place

    You must have seen the Rila Monastery. Equipment, architecture and landscape are unique!
    Back then we were also thrilled by the home-made bread. That tasted wonderful - especially after the long hike over the Rila Mountains.
