Bulgaria: Relax in the Hug of Malyovitsa Photo by Margarita Stoyancheva

If you want to know what it feels like to feel that time has stopped, giving way to eternity, make a present to yourself and spend your weekend at the foot of Malyovitsa peak in Rila Mountain.

By Margarita Stoyancheva

Malyovitsa resort is situated on a small territory, which includes part of Rila National Park - one of the biggest preserved territories in Europe.

The picturesque and, at the same time, steep paths, which lead to the top, are a real challenge even for the most experienced alpinists. Malyovitsa and the other awesome peaks that rise nearby make the area the hardest scramble route in the country. There are the highest alpine escarpments as well.

The resort huddles in the valley of Malyovitsa River. In order to climb to the famous chalet, which brings the same name, one can follow the beaten track, which leads the devoted tourists to the king of the area - the peak itself. Once reaching the top, you will be given the exclusive opportunity to enjoy the endless breathtaking views.

There are two well-maintained ski runs, which are preferred by numerous Bulgarian and foreign winter sport maniacs.

One of the most beautiful lakes on the Balkan peninsular - Strashnoto (the Scary) - is also peacefully waiting for the mountaineers.
