Belogradchik Fortress, Belogradchik
(4.9/5 based on 160+ reviews on the web)
For generations, Romans, Bulgarians, and Ottomans controlled this area from Belogradchik Fortress. The Romans constructed the fortress between the first and third centuries CE. Notice the openings for guns and the three bastions for cannons on the fortress walls. Climb to the highest point of the fortress, called the first slab, for a view of the 70 m (230 ft) high rocks on the other side of the yard. The site also features a monument dedicated to the leaders of the uprising against Ottoman rule, who were taken away through one of the fortress tunnels and beheaded.
