  • Interesting place, were for the first time and we liked, admission is free, but the climb back will require physical efforts, on the way there are benches we were with a large pram and regretted that no left car:) top view offers beautiful, there is a resteraunt. story better read in the Internet so more know than on site or go with a tour guide will explain there. There is a restaurant at the foot of the mountain, at hotels, where you can take a breath and relax. prices unfortunately do not know not visited by car from Varna to this place not very far to go, about 80 km, the road passes through Expressway. If you used in the Fortress of Ovech Barny can roll away from the highway about 4 miles going attraction * stone forest * and instantly you can see two attractions in one side.

  • 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.
