They say that the best things in life are free.  Climbing a mountain is free and the feeling you get is so rewarding.  Hiking is one of the favourite pastimes of people in Bulgaria. We love our mountains!

On Saturday I climbed the steep path to Pleven Hut, which is in the foot of the highest peak in Balkan Mountains, Botev.  It goes through century-old forests and at the end of it awaits an incredible view of the mountain and some tasty food and beer at the hut. I can go on and tell you how great this place is, but why don’t you just go there and discover it for yourself!
