As a fortress or castle, Belogradchik is kind of plain. But the setting as it incorporates the soaring rock formation and overlooking many beautiful formations is outstanding! The high stones are made accessible through stairs. The signs are also interesting, describing one of the most...More

Full of history place. Hire a guide to tell you the story of the fortress and then just shoot couple of pictures on the rocks. Parking is available in front of the fortress.

If you're afraid of heights, don't go near the edges of the rocks, because they may freak you out. It is however totally worth it! The stairs are pretty steep, but are secured enough.
