2 days: Rila Monastery and Malyovitsa Ridge – Rila

Rila mountain. A place with so many lakes and alpine-style peaks. A place where you can take the power of wisdom. A place where the people decided to build a monastery in the X century, which is still there today and is the largest one in Bulgaria.  The mountain was a hideout of Bulgarian haiduts and inspired many legends, songs, and topographic names. The patron of the Bulgarian literature dedicated poems to that mountain and some of his works were finished, when he stayed in the monastery. Come with us on this two-day adventure to see its beauty and magic.
