We were really looking forward to see this area, but were a bit disappointed. The villages of Kosti and Gramatikovo are not really interesting. The road between Tsarevo and Malko Tarnovo is a disaster, an embarrassment to Bulgaria and the National Park which should attract tourists. What saved the day was: First, Malko Tarnovo with a cute center and a... More

Most of the people, even the locals prefer Rila and Pirin Mountains, but actually the beauty of the Bulgarian nature is Strandja.

We thought that we are going to see just a mountain, but in fact we found a huge, beautiful, wild and lushous Nature Park. And when I say it's huge, I mean it would take several weeks to explore it for all it is. Part of it is running close to Turkish border, so we were stopped several times by... More

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

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!
