Nice mountain with many paths and routes just a few minutes from the city of Sofia. Beautiful landscapes and view points from some of its peaks.

The best place to go nearby Sofia if you like to see beautiful landscape and breathe fresh air. Just half on hour away from the city center.

Fresh air! And is really close to Sofia, it's in Sofia actually :D Recommend it for fresh air, especially when you are sick :) this is the best health to get some oxygen and fix yourself really quick and cheap! :) Don't forget, Sofia is beautiful city, but have smog's from time to time and more in the winter.
