Lovely hike and a nice break from the city
Aug 2019
Went in summer when it was really hot so took plenty of water - you need it because it's a moderate hike to the waterfall. I was glad of having approach shoes and wouldn't recommend sandals or similar. The trail is well defined once you find the start! We just followed everyone else and had no issues. The route is nice and shady with lots of places to stop for a while. The waterfall is very pretty and we saw a guy on a highwire, which was fun; also rock climbers. You can get the train to Vitosha station from Sofia and a bus from there. A perfect break from the city.

One favourite place in the nature
Aug 2019
Boyana Waterfall is really a very good place for visit. It is a good idea to go there in the spring, beacuse it is visible from far away, beacause of the water. It is not easy to climb there!

Not a must do
Oct 2019
Did a hiking tour to the Boyana Waterfall with Sofia Green Tours, starting from the Boyana church. It is definetly not an easy hike. For the others in my group who were crossfit athletes it was easy but for someone normal like me who does not do aerobic training, it was exhausting. Plus during autumn it can be slippery at some parts. Be careful because of all the rocks and tree branches on the way. You need good shoes, maybe hiking poles. I did not see any signals marking the way. I would not be able to find the way on my own. It is an accomplishment but not a must do, in my opinion, unless you really like sports/hiking, since the waterfall is rather small and not impressive.

Gorgeous place
Jul 2019 • Family
I have been visiting many places like this one, but I am impressed by the boyana waterfalls! The other one better than that is Krushuna waterfalls, but they are totally beautiful and different! I love visiting that kind of natural places many times a year!
Next time I will make some pictures as well!
