The top of the Central National Balkan Park, in Bulgaria, is characterized by a place with impassable rocks. A unique place, with amazing flora and fauna: this is why it is a natural reserve.

Singing Rocks are natural formations framed in an old beech forest. When wind blows in the right direction, it is possible to hear them "sing". This natural phenomenon gives them their name.

During this tour and vacation you'll have the chance to admire breath-taking landscapes. Hills and uplands offer many opportunities for an unforgettable holiday.

The highlights of your trip are:

  • Balkan Mountains (Stara Planina): they form the longest (550 km) and largest mountain range in Bulgaria (the highest peak is Mount Botev 2376 m a.s.l.)
  • Central National Balkan Park: it is home to wide and untouched nature! The park is characterized by deep gorges, steep slopes, canyon, fresh waterfalls and countless streams. The national park boasts the highest waterfall in Bulgaria: Raiskoto Praskalo, which is 125 m high.
  • Apriltsi: it is a small city, located at the foot of the Central Balkans. This town is rich in history, nature and monuments.
