Rila National Park is the largest park in the country. It is hidden in the heart of Rila Mountain, approximately 100 km south of Sofia and covers an area of 81 000 hectares. The park is inhabited by more than 3000 animal and 100 bird species and almost 90% of its territory is taken up by venerable coniferous trees such as spruce, white fur and Scots pine, among others. But that’s not all. It boasts over 120 natural lakes and four reserves: Parangalitsa, Central Rila Reserve, Ibar and Skakavitsa. Parangalitsa is also one of the biosphere reserves under the protection of the Man and Biosphere Programme introduced by UNESCO.
The park is a preferred destination for all people who enjoy mountain-related activities. It offers an impressive network of eco trails that vary in difficulty and are accessible throughout the whole year and some great mountain biking routes. This is also where one will find Musala, the highest peak on the Balkans (2925 m) and Borovets, the oldest ski resort in the country established in 1896.
