Upper Struma river valley, Vitosha


      Here is another perfect escape from the hot weather in Sofia. You will find it along the upper Struma river valley in Vitosha mountain, between the villages of Bosnek and Chuypetlovo. 

      Here are some interesting facts for the area:

  • Near the village of Bosnek, along the valley of "Dobri dol" river in the area called "Living water", you will find the dragon spring. You will see sings just at the end of the village. To reach the spring you just need to follow the road.
  • On the road between the two villages is located the entrance to the longest cave in Bulgaria, called "Duhlata". It was created by the underground currents of the Struma River. Unfortunately the access to the cave is restricted. It can be visited only by researchers or experienced cavers with permission by Vitosha Nature Park Directorate.

  • Chuypetlovo is the only settlement in the interior of Vitosha Mountain. It is situated at a medium altitude of 1225 m, which makes it the highest village in Vitosha.
