Outside Vratsa and up through a gorge which is spectacular. There are many walking trails although length and difficulty is not available. Full of wildlife and some beautiful flowers. The lower parts near the rivers are popular with locals who picnic and sit in the river on hot days.

We have visited the area several times, latest at the beginning of May 2013 for a holiday of 5 days. I was very surprised Trip advisor knows about this place, as I did not think it was popular. This is a mountain area just above Vratsa with amazing beauty and you can find many beautiful places if you walk around the area. This place is so quiet and peaceful, the air crystal clean. At the beggining of this May there was August heat. Very relaxing place. A drawback is probably the road which is not well maintained. The food in the restaurant we were in was very good, esp the roasted lamb local style.
