The Rhodope mountains, the most lyrical Bulgarian mountains, are located in the southern part of Bulgaria. They are one of the oldest mountains in Bulgaria - the land where panpipes, Orpheus and the Orphic Cult originated, a region rich in gems and ores, picturesque villages and hospitable people. The best conifer forests in Bulgaria can be found here, as well as 15 nature reserves, deep river gorges, large caves and specific sculptured rock formations.
The highest peak is Golyam Perelik at an altitude of 2191m.
Pirin mountain is the second highest in Bulgaria situated in the south-west part of the country between the rivers Struma and Mesta. Pirin mountain, a glorious glacial landscape of peaks and lakes, offers some of the finest walking in Europe. Pirin has acquired Alpine relief - rocky marble or granite peaks and cliffs, deep cirques, well shaped glacier valleys and numerous lakes. It is the mountain with the greatest number of sunny days throughout the year and annual average temperature in the area of Vihren chalet (2000m) of -3.7C.
Northern Pirin is the home of the highest peak, Vihren (2914m), and 60 others above 2500m. Because of its unique nature, in 1983 UNESCO decided to include the Pirin National Park in the list of the world's cultural and natural heritage.
