Bachkovo Monastery & Wine Cellar Tasting & Lunch
Spend the day connecting with nature, learning about Bulgarian wine and
taking in the tranquil atmosphere of the Bachkovo Monastery.
The orthodox Bachkovo monastery is situated in the luscious Rhodope mountains and is the second largest monastery in Bulgaria. It is an absolute must-see place when visiting Plovdiv!
Learn more about Bulgarian wines and the history of wine production during a visit to a local wine cellar. At the wine cellar, we will taste 5 Bulgarian wines in the tasting room!
Enjoy a traditional lunch in a Bulgarian village! Try some local delicacies and, hopefully, you will become a fan of Bulgarian cuisine!
Another fascinating place, seated on a high, rocky ridge in the Rhodopi mountains is Asen's Fortress, which is the last stop of our tour. This 6-hour tour combines culture, history, wine and food in the best possible way, and your friendly Tour Leader will be present to explain everything and answer any question that you may have!
