  • Not the best waterfall in the world but worth the trek. Two routes available easy route says 1hr 45mins but harder route bit tricky and maybe not negotiable if bad weather  more »
  • Nice easy walking up with shady paths. Take water and a snack. Backtrack and take the same path back. The steep descent is a little hairy. Lots of mosquitoes after a rainy day. We took tram 5 from the...  more »

  • Great hike! We went the very steep way up and it took us two hours due to the amount of climbing required. It can be difficult to know which path is correct on the harder trail, as it's not as well marked. On the way back we took the easier, very well marked path and it only took an hour to descend. Nice views, great foliage, pretty waterfall.
  • I recommend you to first take the hard route next to the river on the way up because downwards this way could be really slippery. Although this way up is quite challenging it's totally worth it (it took us about 1 hour). On the way back I recommend the Panorama way on the Eastern side. You'll definitely make some stops for nice photos.
  • Amazing walk. There are two routes, one that is more easy and takes more time, and the other that is faster, beautiful and dangerous. We went to difficult route on the way to the waterfall and came back on the easy one.
  • Very beautiful, slightly difficult terrain to go through to reach the waterfall, but it's worth it.
  • The waterfall can be reached via two different trails, but I'd recommend the steeper and more scenic one that follows the Boyana river upstream. The waterfall itself is a great sight and very close to the capital.

Where to stay in Sofia

Set yourself up for easy and convenient access to Sofia's historical core and its most popular tourist sites by staying in an upscale hotel in the city center. While you'll find some hotels on the main boulevard, look for modern hotels off the main streets to keep costs lower. Staying outside the center in the outlying neighborhoods means you'll need to use public transportation, but the network is extensive and accommodation prices farther out are lower. For a real budget-friendly option, consider staying in a hostel; the city boasts a wide array of these, many of which include breakfast.
