Teteven Balkan, one of the most beautiful parts of the Balkan Mountains, is situated very close to Sofia. Hidden forest paths lead to high ridges with spacious views and fresh air. The best way to see this area is most certainly on horseback. After arriving in the village of Glozhen Izvor, you will meet your horse and get quick riding instructions.
Then, head along the forest paths to Lisets Mountain with a stunning panoramic view of Teteven Balkan. See the silhouette of the Glozhen Monastery perched on an inaccessible rock - one of the most impressive sights in all of Bulgaria. Then, before heading back to Sofia, continue to Morovitsa cave where you will be astonished by its large interior dome.
