It has several well-known climbing walls ranging in height from 100 to 400 metres, and it also provides opportunities for skiing. In summertime, the imposing peak is a major trekking destination. It is the namesake for a craig on Livingstone Island, in the South Shetlands, Antarctica.
Where in Bulgaria are you?
IRENA PETROVA, Varna Airport border police officer, guessed correctly that we have shown you the Vidin Fortress in the "Where in Bulgaria are you?" quiz in issue 101, and won a copy of Vagabond's latest book, Hidden Treasures of Bulgaria 2. Irena is eager to grab each new issue of Vagabond and read it, as she finds it fascinating and full with new interesting information. If she can recommend three things in Bulgaria to a foreigner, it would be the country's incredible diversity of landscape and history; the Bulgarian cuisine and locally grown vegetables and fruits; and the unearthly beauty of the Rhodope. Irena, however, is disappointed with the way Bulgarian government and business handle tourism, resulting in plenty of interesting sites and places neglected and unknown to the broader public.
