We invite you on a short trip to our neighboring country, Bulgaria, more precisely, to the Rusenski Lom Natural Park! This Natural Park is a marvelous canyon, just 20 kilometers from Ruse and less than an hour and a half from Bucharest. We will discover together the natural beauties of this area and the surrounding villages.
Your day by day program
Our getaway to Bulgaria begins with our arrival in Nisovo village, 30 km from Ruse. We will be accommodated in a family hotel, located in the middle of nature, in the heart of the natural park that we will discover. On the first evening, depending on the time of arrival, we will enjoy a walk through the village to a rocky plateau, about 1.5h.
We start this day with a short transfer to Cherven, 15 km from the accommodation, we visit the medieval fortress - one of the most important military, economic and religious centers in the Second Bulgarian Country.
Then we go through the Rusenski Lom Natural Park. We pass the former Christian stone monasteries from the 13th and 14th centuries and reach the village of Koshov. Here we will have lunch at a guesthouse. We continue with a panoramic walk around the village of Koshov, admiring the beautiful meanders of the river Cherni Lom with its landscapes and the beautiful canyon. We visit the rocky churches of the Blessed Virgin with its preserved frescoes from the 14th century - a masterpiece of Christian art and painting. At the end of the day we will have a transfer back to Nisovo.
