Sredna Gora, the “Middle Mountains”, situated between the Balkan and Rhodope mountain chains, is also called the Athos or Holy Mountains of Bulgaria. Here you can find several monasteries and chapels concentrated in one region. A visitor can walk or travel by bus between the destinations. It is a place not only for spiritual tourism, outdoor activities and relaxation, but also for history and culture. Sredna Gora offers a rich short-cut to Bulgarian history.
Around the medieval capital of Bulgaria, Veliko Tarnovo, another cluster of monasteries can be found. Along the rivers several monasteries were built almost one thousand years ago and they offer the traveller a quiet retreat, except on festivals when they fill up to the brim. We offer a tour around the monasteries and the history of Bulgaria in scenic landscapes with impressive rock formations and deep valleys.
