Vitosha Mountain, Sofia

(4.6/5 based on 650+ reviews on the web)
Ski and hike at Vitosha Mountain, the oldest nature park in the Balkans. The mountain offers huge skiing areas and schools for all levels. The 1930s' meteorological station at the top serves as a shelter for hikers. At a biosphere preserve called the Golden Bridges, a ribbon of huge rocks runs down the mountainside in a "stone river." The mountain is easily accessible via bus lines and a funicular. Note that the weather is very changeable. The hotels have low prices but limited facilities. Add Vitosha Mountain and other attractions to your Sofia trip itinerary using our Sofia tour planner.

  • Above arrived with the somewhat rickety dated gondola it was lovely to see how hundreds of children followed lasjes ski. For adults only fun for a day of skiing. It is a small area with nice slopes. Very special to the view of a city with such a one and a half million people to watch out.

  • This is the highest mountain near Capital in Europe. The highest peak - Cherni vrah is 2290 m. Here you can ski in winter and in summer there are wonderful tourist march. 
  • Wonderful place for skiing, walk, also suitable for families with young children. Possibility to rent ski equipment for adults and children and the sleigh for the little ones. Eating in the restaurant or outside in the cool fix in bufetoch. All at reasonable prices. Transport to resolve either with their own car or funicular, the latter has greater experience:)
