What shall I see

After a 3 hour transfer we will reach the town of Belogradchik. The tour of the town, along with the fortress and the amazing rock formations takes 3 hours.

The Belogradchik massif is a group of strange shaped sandstone and conglomerate rock formations, located on the slopes of the western Balkan Mountains. The rocks vary in color from primarily red to yellow; some of the rocks reach up to 200 m. in height. Many of the rocks represent fantastic shapes and are associated with interesting legends. They are often named after people or objects they are thought to resemble. The Belogradchik Rocks have been declared a Nature Landmark by the Bulgarian government and are a major tourist attraction in the region.

Belogradchik Fortress is situated at a distance of 1.5 km from the town of Belogradchik among the renowned rocks. It is a fortress, which existed since the Roman times. In 1st – 3rd century AD the Romans built roads across the new provinces of the empire on the Balkan Peninsula, as well as some fortresses to guard them. The mission of Belogradchik Fortress was to control the road from the town of Ratsiaria (nearby today’s village of Archar, in the region of Vidin). The Romans constructed the highest part of the fortress, called The Citadel.

Reviews

, Italy 18.08.2017

We are very satisfied of this trip. The booking process on the website, the van and the meeting pick-up were perfect. Our guide Ekaterina very nice and funny. She leaded us into a well explained path and she made us also live some adventure on the rocks. The time table respected and the place so beautiful. We will recommend it if you want to spend some time also among the Balcans.

Customer questions and answers

Q: 

1. Is this a private tour, or with additional tourist participants?

2. Is it a fully guided tour in a sense that we are constantly getting explanations?

3. I see there are nice views, but little indication on the walking distance/terrain, can you explain how long/far we will be walking?

Thanks, Eldad

asked on April 26, 2019 by Eldad
A: 

1. The tour is not private (there will be other participants). If interested, we can offer you a private tour.

2. The tour is with English speaking guide from the pick up till the drop off.

3. The walking distance is about 5 km, the guide will walk around the fortress and the massive rocks, it is not very hard terrain but you need to have proper shoes for the little hiking. In the cave you have a distance of about 2 km from the entrance to the exit of the Magura cave.
