The Melnik Pyramids


Natural Wonders

Melnik Pyramids is a breath-taking natural rock formation on the outskirts of Melnik, the smallest town in Bulgaria. Drive along the Sofia-Kulata international highway and turn at the sign. Follows some 13 km scenic road through picturesque villages, farms and vineyards. Just before the village of Lozenitsa, a few km before Melnik, you will see a vast area covered with the white steep slopes of the Melnik Pyramids. There are good public transport connections to Melnik both from Sofia and from the bigger towns nearby such as Blagoevgrad, Sandanski, Petrich etc. Some of the hotels in Melnik have rooms with a view of the Pyramids, which can make your stay even more delightful. The most beautiful pyramids, however, are the ones in the area of Karlanovo village. The quaint little village is only a short walk from Melnik on the way to the Rozhen Monastery, another remarkable sight that must be visited if you are in this part of the Pirin Mountain.
