  • Really beautiful place. If you are staying in the area, chat with the manager at your hotel who might be able to organise a tour for you. We stayed in a small town where everyone knew everyone, which helped when booking a tour.
  • Really well kept area with plenty of different terrains and lots of wildlife. Opportunity to just sit back and enjoy acting as tourist.
  • Strandzha is mystic mountain, but it's not nessesery to fill this magic only by passing by. This mountain can accept or neglect you. Strandzha mountain has it's own "personality ". Village Bulgari is calm. It's not full of people and there are no attractions. You can stay there for relax and connection with nature. In the forest there are wild animals. You have to be careful. But if the mountain accept you, you may have interesting experience.
  • The sea side and the beach are part of the national park "Stranja".Still one of the few untouched by human hand places to the far south of the sea.Serenity and tranquility.
  • One of the loveliest places in Bulgaria. A magical area where the mountains kiss the sea and miths and legends are born. Definitely a must see!
