BANSKO

We all love snow in the city on the first day after it falls, while the air is still crisp and pristine white covers the dusty streets, the cars, the leafless trees. However, after its first day in Sofia, snow becomes just another urban annoyance. The compacted ice on the pavements. The impassable streets. The grey, yellow and black hues the snow assumes from the dirty city air. Not. Enjoyable. At. All.

MARITSA, ARDA AND TUNDZHA: TALE OF THREE RIVERS

Three major rivers flow through southern Bulgaria: the Maritsa, the Arda, and the Tundzha.
