Absolutely fantastic trip, the monestary it self was a little mediocre compared to those in other parts of Europe. However, our guide made the tour, Georgi’s knowledge of the local area, historic, religious, geography and politics was outstanding. The trip was more educational than touristy. Melnik is a really special place, we had a fantastic lunch and enjoyed learning about the historical significance of the village. The locals sell all goods produced in the area and we picked up some lovely momentos for home. The vineyard was great another amazing guide in a young local girl - Johanna! The people we met made the tour a unique and memorable experience. Totally surpassed my expectations. This is a tour for history lovers and as a historican I loved it! Couldn’t recommend highly enough, booking, pick up, drop off all seamless.

Itinerary

This is a typical itinerary for this product

Stop At: Kordopulova House, Melnik Bulgaria

he Kordopulov (or Kordopulov's) House is a large Bulgarian National Revival house in the southwestern Bulgarian town of Melnik. It was built in 1754 specifically for wine production and was bought by the rich and known Greek merchant Manolis Kordopulos. The house, possibly the largest of its kind and period, is located in the town's eastern part and consists of a ground floor that includes a wine cellar, a semi-basement for economic needs and a bay floor intended to be inhabited.

Duration: 50 minutes

Pass By: The Melnik Pyramids, Pirin Planina, Melnik Bulgaria

These unique natural formations attract tourists from all over the world. It is thought that the limestone of which they are composed is the result of erosion, and those forces continue to alter their shape.

These fantastically sculpted rocks have assumed the most varied shapes and details, resembling stone mushrooms, haystacks, minarets, alpine ridges and peaks, swords, obelisks, Egyptian pyramids, Gothic cathedrals, and so forth.

Stop At: Rozhen Monastery, Rozhen, Melnik 2820 Bulgaria
