  • Beautiful mountain that connects Bulgaria with Turkey. It's reserve that includes some of the most beautiful places around black sea. It also have beautiful roads for riding a bike ( motorcycle or bicycle)
  • Very beautiful and quiet. Fresh air and nature. You can relax here.
  • Really well kept area with plenty of different terrains and lots of wildlife. Opportunity to just sit back and enjoy acting as tourist.
  • 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.
  • Untouched Forest and Nature. Ancient. Magic Strandzha
