“Could do better”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 23, 2013

At least getting to the fortress is fairly well signed! There is some information inside but as usual not a lot. Views from the castle are impressive and there are various walks that start from the back of the castle. No maps of where they are going or how strenuous.

“Incredible place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 20, 2013

This place tops a lot of places we have been too! It should rival manchu pitchu! But again it is so remote, hardly any hotel accomodations. Somehow there has to be a rail road! But again Bulgaria is so poor it needs help! To us who were fortunate enough and who could still walk and climb it was a priveledge. Thank you God for such a wonderful place, then again the Celts and Romans for creating this place!

The Belogradchik fortress offers great view over the rocks. This place is one of the best masterpiece created by nature.

The nature has made one of her best masterpiece in the world! The Belogradchik rocks are majestic ! Everybody must see them! The words can not explain how we were feeling when we saw everything around from the top of the rocks! People-just visit them!

“Belogradchik Rocks”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 29, 2013

The Belogradchik rocks are a nature fenomena which is unsurpassed and were competing for the 8th wonder of the world. They start quite a long way before you reach the town of Belogradchik and you are left with an open mouth when you see them a little far from the winding road but they are the best behind the fortress where you can clearly see a couple embracing; the wind is omnipresent you dont want to leave these rocks - all of them are red in color. Pity they are so far away from Sofia on the way to Vidin. We started the trip at 09.30 and arrived back in Sofia at 18.30hrs
