Relax in the Hug of Maliovitsa

Source: Sofia News Agency (
Published Date: 12 May 2007

If you want to know what is like to feel that the time has stopped, giving way to the eternity, make a present to yourself and spend your vacation at the foot of Maliovitsa peak in Rila Mountain.

By Margarita Stoyancheva

Maliovitsa resort is situated on a small territory, which includes part of Rila National Park - one of the biggest preserved territories in Europe.

The picturesque and, at the same time, steep paths, which lead to the top, are a real challenge even for the most experienced alpinists. Maliovitsa and the other awesome peaks that rise nearby make the area the hardest scramble route in the country. There are the highest alpine escarpments as well.

The resort huddles in the valley of Maliovitsa River. In order to climb to the famous chalet, which brings the same name, one can follow the beaten track, which leads the devoted tourists to the king of the area - the peak itself. Once reaching the top, you will be given the exclusive opportunity to enjoy the endless breathtaking views.

There are two well-maintained ski runs, which are preferred by numerous Bulgarian and foreign winter sport maniacs.

One of the most beautiful lakes on the Balkan peninsular - Strashnoto (the Scary) - is also peacefully waiting for the mountaineers.

The silence and calmness help the tourists to gather patience and peace of mind enough to completely forget about their haste way of life.
