The fortress and rocks are stunning! Additionally, my guide, Mariya, was extremely kind and knowledgeable. It was a once-in-a-lifetime experience.

A great day-trip! Maria, our guide, took great care of us. On the way to Belogradchik, she talked about the fortress and its history but also about Bulgarian culture, agriculture (glorious fields of sunflowers) and even infrastructure. (Yes. There really needs to be a tunnel.) Along the way, she stopped and got us a nice treat of fresh raspberries from a local person selling by the road. When we arrived at the fortress, there were a number of big tour busses. Maria surmised that they wouldn't be there long, so she showed us another formation and viewing area until the crowd thinned out. Belogradchik Fortress is not only impressive but unique. Red rocky fingers of iron-ladden rock project upwards from the top of a hill where Romans began the fortress. Around that, are the remains from when it was expanded in medieval times. Then finally it is framed by stone walls erected during the Ottoman occupation. The view from the summit was breathtaking. Maria explained the geology that formed the landscape, beginning some 250 million years ago. On the way back, Maria wanted to take us to a little local place for lunch, but, alas, it was closed on Mondays (due to Covid). Instead, we stopped in Montana and found a very charming, very non-touristy place next to a lovely park (where they were rehearsing for a concert -- and that little girl could sing!!). This was a delightful, unexpected treat! In summary, it was a fantastic trip. Maria was professional, knowledgeable and just good fun. I greatly recommend the tour, Maria, Zelanos and Get Your Guide.

This was a once-in-a-lifetime experience! The red rocks are breathtaking and so is the fortress. You should also ask for my tour guide, Mariya. She is very warm-hearted and a wonderful person. I enjoyed this place more than the Eifel Tower, the Colosseum, or the Leaning Tower. It’s the most astonishing place in Europe, in my opinion.

Hi, very nice experience, both for the fortress and the natural fenomen of the rocks. Magura cave is also near by so really nice trip to go in Bulgaria.

This is an amazing attraction that is a must. Wear good footwear because it’s difficult steps in certain areas. The magnitude of the formations are unbelievable and a must to get to the top and see the panoramic view. The truck up may be a challenge but doable with care. An amazing historic place!

Fantastic nature. Absolutely true to call this place one of the world wonders. I've also had an amazing guide, that told me all legends and histories about this place. You gonna come back to Belogradchik Rocks again and again.
