Take a private automobile excursion around the breathtaking mountains that border one of Bulgaria’s largest rivers to observe the railroad tracks and the passing trains.
First, pause at a stunning waterfall where you may go around and explore. It was sculpted out of the Stara Planina like a natural miracle. The waters of the Iskar River have carved their way through the rock along the mountain for countless years.
After that, proceed just a few kilometers farther down to a very significant historical site. Possibility to ascend further up the mountain and take in a beautiful view while learning about the past.
After some exploration and photo-taking, you’ll pause for lunch in the midst of mountain views.
Last but not least, stop at a mountain beside a tiny river that flows into Iskar before returning to Sofia. Explore the locations where monasteries formerly stood and discover their history.
The 155-kilometer-long Iskar Gorge begins on the Sofia Plain, travels through the Balkan, and finishes near Cherven Bryag. On this road, you will be escorted about midway for an unforgettable day tour.
