Explore the striking Belogradchik Rocks on a guided day trip from Sofia. Walk among these unique rock formations perched atop a hilly outcrop, enjoying panoramic views of rolling green hills from the top. Learn about how the rocks came to be over 230 million years ago from your licensed guide. Sit back and relax on a return van ride from and to Sofia, enjoying the countryside views along your way. See these rock formations, an exceptional natural phenomenon unique to the Balkans, up close as you follow your guide through the rocky outcrop. Steeped in legends and history, these rocks were created in such a way that they offered a natural fortress with a high defensive potential. Visit the Belogradchik Fortress (at your own expense) to see how these rocks were once used as a natural fortress for many decades. Nominated for the New 7 Wonders of Nature competition, the Belogradchik Rocks were at the top of the list in the category for caves, rock formations, and valleys. If you can handle more experiences, we will visit the Venetsa cave, which is one of the most beautiful caves in Bulgaria
