  • This national park is located along the Turkish border. A beautiful nature reserve with very bad roads. The area is very Woody and you drive there hours without someone. We first went to Kosti. According to the map you would from there to Mishkovan Niva can drive, but that way we never found. So back again and via Brushlyan to Gramatikovo. This is a beautiful picturesque village of farmers with 18th century wooden houses. When we arrived there just drove a jeep safari road. Funny, all the ladies in traditional costumes went back to their houses to turn himself to dress up. This village is worth to view and walk through. Especially if there is no other tourists. The other villages where we came through it we found not much. But the area is beautiful. Pull a whole day before and keep in mind the very bad roads.
