Dobravishka Skaklya waterfall - the hidden jewel of the Ponor mountain


The village of Dobravitsa is one of the smallest villages in the municipality of Svoge, but it stands out with its incredibly beautiful nature and interesting tourist sites. It is about 1,000 meters above sea level and has very suitable air for people with lung diseases. From the upper hamlet of the village begins the eco-trail to the Stolo Rock Phenomenon and from the lower hamlet begins the eco-trail to the Dobravishka Skaklya waterfall. The interesting thing about this village is that, despite its location in the heart of the Ponor mountain, here many years ago it was the bottom of a sea. There is still the possibility of encountering fossils of shells, molluscs and more.

Fotinski Waterfalls - an extreme but also a very beautiful place to visit


Fotinski waterfalls are one of the most beautiful waterfalls I have visited, but also one of the most challenging. They are located in the Western Rhodopes, Bulgaria near the village of Fotinovo. They are 3 in number and are about 6-7 meters high, and the tallest about 16 meters. The walk to them is 3-4 km long and will take you about an hour, but the beautiful scenery and the noise of the river will definitely make it feel like just a moment.
