If you are a first time visitor to Burgas and you hear about Strandja, do not expect something dramatic and spectacular like the Alps. Prepare for a mellow hills and meandering slow rivers. How ever if you are on the Bulgarian Black see coast as a tourist, your interest to that mountain will be most probably the coast where the... More

The Nature is beautiful, relaxing ang welcoming. The combination of sea and mountain is great. The local population is extremely hospitable. Food and drinks are great.

A lovely place to visit. Great walks, beautiful sites and waterfalls. You will not make a mistake if you go. Be careful to bring IDs as it is close to the border and you might get pulled over. Otherwise everything is peaceful and magnificent!

Strandja is not just a mountain but a whole forested region in the south-east of Bulgaria, which has been designated as a national park and nature reserve. It runs from (approximately) Primorsko (on the Black Sea coast) southwards to the border with Turkey and stretches up to 100km or so westwards. It encompasses a few towns and many villages, some...

Lovely undeveloped sandy coves & rugged coastline, Wild mountain forested park full of wildlife & fab autumn colours. Warm people & incredibly cheap to eat & live. Best villages are just 10 kilometers from coast in the park, authentic old houses, but sparsely populated. Weve been all over Bulgaria & this southern coast the best area, totally missed by most...

Except the bumpy road after Malko Tranovo, it's really excellent expirience to see some real old vilages that preserved the life style in last 400 years. A lot of trails along the river (I didn't check the shore) and the driving is most of the time in the forest. The recommended trip is going on the highway to Zvezdets and... More

Spent a couple of days exploring with friends, but barely scratched the surface of this huge area of forest. Spectacular views, great walks, beautiful flora and fauna - even saw wild boar and a black stork on the same day while exploring various areas.

Go there to enjoy the pure nature! Simply to find a real beauty or maybe to find the Rhododendron ponticum... Go to Ropotamo too

Beautifully situated at Black Sea along Bulgarian-Turkish border (formerly no-man zone) the mountain boosts virgin forests, rivers with many endemic plants and fauna. Our five-days trip to Stranja culminated with the "nestinari" festival held at village of Balgari on 3rd of June - the feast day of St.St. Konstantin and Elena. The tradition of dancing on hot embers originated centuries... More
