Vitosha Mountain, Sofia

(700+ reviews on the web)
Mountain
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.
