A tour that encompasses the rich culture and history of Bulgaria's Rhodopes
A tour that encompasses the rich culture and history of Bulgaria's Rhodopes - a mountain known for its gorgeous scenery and fascinating traditional rural villages. Asen's Fortress (13th century) is located only 25 minutes from Plovdiv and offers a glimpse at Beulgarian history during medieval times. Nearby is the second largest monastery in Bulgaria - Bachkovo Monastery, a stunning work of architecture. It is home of the Miracle Working Icon of the Holy Virgin, an icon that is said to heal ailments and bring good fortune. The road up to the monastery is lined with market stalls selling local herbs, spices, jams and honey, and the restaurants offer some of the best traditional cooking in the country.
