  • Took the car and decided to go to interesting places in Bulgaria. Accidentally stumbled on the map of the fortress of Ovech, decided to go on the road. The fortress is located on a rocky plateau with an altitude which provides a beautiful view of the town of Provadiya. Climb to the Plateau from the town of steep stairs, but while looking for a parking space, accidentally left outside the city and stopped on the other side of the plateau. As it turns out, there is a road which you can drive almost to the top, and then a little climb the Rocky stairs. Object is greater than would be interesting to fans of history or simply wishing to walk outdoors because of the fortress itself, leaving only the stone gate and a long bridge over the Gorge. Visit the fortress I would advise in the morning or in the evening, because it is very hot during the day, and to hide from the Sun there is no where and be sure to bring water and maybe a light snack, will not be amiss.

  • An interesting place for visiting families. For children, run and climb on the ruins of the old fortress, adults walk around, breathe the air and admire the views from above. There are two approaches to the fortress and porch. We drove from the city, left at the bottom of the car and climbed the spiral staircase, similar to the elevator. Cashier no longer worked in November. While upstairs, on the other hand, saw a rise: narrow road through light and steep stone steps up. Many local people come to the top of hanging out with the dogs.

  • This is a most unusual site and exciting place to climb up to. There is a 360 degree view of the towns and villages around in the gentle countryside below. Well worth a visit.  more »
