DescriptionYour first visit on this 6-hour excursion is to the National Museum of History, housed in part of the residence of the former dictator Todor Zhivkov. The museum’s 22,000 exhibits show the development of the social, cultural, and political life of the region beginning with prehistoric settlements. Among the most spectacular holdings are the unique Thracian gold treasures from Panagyurishte and the Thracian silver treasure from Rogozen, as well as jewelry from the Bronze Age. Head next to the World Heritage-listed Boyana Church. Ranking among Bulgaria's most significant historical treasures, the church is surrounded by tall pine trees, and dates back to the 11th century. Following its recent restoration, visitors can now admire the unique frescoes which are a remarkable example of realistic art from the medieval period. You’ll visit Vitosha Mountain for some spectacular views of Sophia. A national wonder known as Stone River is found here, near the site of the Golden Bridges. The river is actually a piling up of huge boulders, sloping down the mountain. In the evening you’ll be transferred to a traditional restaurant located in the foothills, where you’ll enjoy a delicious dinner with wine. Live music and a performance by traditional Bulgarian dancers will make the dinner an unforgettable event.
