Half-Day Private Tour in Central Rhodope Mountain

Nearby Plovdiv is located Asenovgrad town, better known as the Bulgarian Jerusalem. It is also called the city of brides and its symbol is a medieval fortress named after the Bulgarian king Ivan-Asen II.

Asen’s fortress still controls the passage through the Rhodope Mountains, leading us to the Bachkovo monastery – the second biggest in Bulgaria and the most impressive with its miraculous stories. Once entered in this area, you’ll definitely hear about Mavrud – man, hero or wine? – Many legends are speaking about one fabulous wine – the Mavrud from Asenovgrad!
