The Highest Waterfall in Bulgaria

Bulgaria is a country of immense beauty and wonders of nature. Here, you can find a rich diversity of landscapes and sceneries, starting with mountains – snow-capped in winter and velvet-soft in summer – through to enormous green or lavender fields and long, golden-sand beaches and fantastic sunsets by the sea. You can witness intricate rock formations, fast-running rivers and calm lakes or grand waterfalls of unspeakable charm.

The oldest tree 1

The Oldest Bulgarian Tree

The oldest Bulgarian tree – and according to some, the oldest living tree in Europe – is an oak in the village of Granit near Stara Zagora. Its age is estimated at 1,666 years. If we think deeper into the age of the tree, we could calculate that it was planted in 345 AD and 336 years before the creation of the Bulgarian state. The tree crown spreads over 1,017 sq m (10,946.9 sq ft) while it stands at 23.4 m (76.8 ft), and the diameter of the trunk (also called circumference) is 7.5 m (24.6 ft).

The Advice of the Concierge: St. Alexander Nevsky Cathedral

There are places which should not be missed while on a trip to Sofia. Imposing, inspiring, intriguing, they relate the history of a whole nation and are accepted as symbols. Such a building is the St. Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, the second-largest Orthodox cathedral located on the Balkan Peninsula, after the Cathedral of Saint Sava in Belgrade.

Photography for everyone

People around us often surprise us with hobbies and interests that are not directly related to the job they are performing. They can turn out to be talented in music, arts or sports - and it is on a specific occasion in life when we discover their talent or skills.
