I returned in Bulgaria in April 2017

I updated the photo gallery ( see the first post )

I also visited : Koprivshtitsa - Rila - Boboshevo - Vitosha - Dobrovnitsa - Belovitsa - Kostadinkino - Studena - Bobov Dol - Mirovo

Koprivshtitsa is a very interesting little town with many traditional architecture houses

The Rila Monastery is probably the most beautiful Monastery in Bulgaria
