My boyfriend and I will be in Bulgaria at the beginning of August and have 3 days to fill. We will be in Sofia and were wanting to go somewhere near the Seven Lakes so that we could do some easy hikes during the days to see the lakes, visit the monestery etc. We have 2-3 nights to spare and would like somewhere to stay that we can leave our luggage and set off each day on self guided walking tours etc. Can anyone suggest where we should base ourselves in order to visit the Rila area?
Thanks so much!
