Feel the complete difference from the town with the fresh air, beautiful nature and relaxing atmosphere. From there, start your hike to the Black Peak. The hike is of moderate difficulty and takes about 1.5 hours in each direction. Take breaks for photos and stop to see the beautiful panoramic views of Sofia in the distance throughout your hike. The altitude of the peak is 2290 meters, and it is one the windiest peaks in Bulgaria, so you should be dressed accordingly.
