Bulgaria: Mountain Climbing

A Country of Superb Variations

Bulgaria Mountain Climbing

With seven impressive mountain ranges, mountain climbing in Bulgaria can be an exhilarating experience, and wherever you are in Bulgaria, you’re never very far away from a mountain. The main areas for mountain climbing in Bulgaria are the Rila and Pirin mountain ranges in the south and the Balkan range in the centre of the country. Vratsa, north of Sofia, is a popular base for mountain climbing too, offering easy access to the largest limestone climbing area in Bulgaria, the Vratsa Rocks.
