The town of Samokov is located in Western Bulgaria, about 60km of the capital. It is one of the “100 Tourist sites in Bulgaria”. The Samokov Hollow lays in-between several mountains – Rila, Vitosha, Verila, Plana and Ihtimanska Sredna Gora. This location results in moderate climate – not very hot summer, and mild long winter. The region is particularly suitable for walks, hikes, and wild berries and mushrooms picking.

Some of the tourist sites in Samokov are:

* The History Museum

* Belyova Church

* Golyamata Cheshma

* The Synagogue

* Sarafskata House

* Alynski and Kovachevski Monasteries



Borovets is the most popular mountain resort in Bulgaria. It not only offers perfect conditions for practicing winter sports with its 24 ski slopes, but also is a preferred destination for the summer season. The resort is a favorite place for nature lovers and it is a starting point for many hiking trails in Rila Mountain. The coniferous forests, herbs and flowers are a great base for a one's complete recreation and rest. The resort offers many entertainment options as well – markets, bars, restaurants, small taverns and others. Mala Tsurkva

The village is especially picturesque with beautiful nature and is suitable for walks alongside the river. Such walk leads to a place called “Pesako” where the water goes underground and appears again few meters further down the way.

In the village you can also visit the preserved church “St. St. Petar and Pavel”, dating back to the 16th century. What is interesting about the church is that during Ottoman times it has been fully buried under the ground.

There is a Water Festival taking place here in the month of July.


The village of Madjare stands about 11km of Samokov. It is famous for its beautiful nature, large pine forests and rocky, steep regions. These characteristics make it especially attractive destination for mountaineering and for extreme winter sports lovers. One of the main tourist sites in the village is the “God Ascension” Church.


The village of Govedartsi is not only attractive for the ski opportunities that it has, but also is well-visited in the summer season for its great geographical location. It is situated in the forefront part of the National Park, alongside Cherni Iskar River. The village is one of the starting points for hiking tours to Malyovitsa Peak. It is also a good place to start your walk to Vada Hut (it takes about 2 hours on foot), Mechit Hut (about 1 hour), Lovna Hut (it takes 3 hours), Malyovitsa Hut and Mountain School Malyovitsa.

There are also several monasteries and churches in the region that can be visited. You can also reach the Seven Rila Lakes (go in the direction of Vada Hut).

The village of Beli Iskar stands7 km of Samokov and is located in the foot of Musala Peak. Several picturesque hiking trails to the peak have their beginning here. The village is also a starting point for one of the most beautiful eco trails – Beli Iskar. It starts at the end of the village and all the time goes alongside Beli Iskar River. One will need about two and a half hours to go through the whole route. The valley is rich in narrow gorges and riverine landscape, interesting rock formations and pine forests. There are seven bridges along the river. Also you will find picnic areas.

Iskar Dam

Iskar Dam is named after the river of the same name. This is the largest dam in Bulgaria and is located only 15 km of Borovets.

Except good conditions for fishing, the dam also offers possibilities for sailing, kayaking, surfing, jet driving and water skiing. The best time of the year to have fun at the dam is between May and October.
