Our meeting point will be at the central train station in Sofia at 10:30 a.m. We are going to catch the train and we should arrived at our destination Lakatnik at 12:30 p.m. Lakatnik is a small village, built on the gorge of the longest river in Bulgaria-Iskar. From the train station we are going to hike up on the hills until we reached the top of the rocks. On our way we will have few stopes to make panoramic pictures. Also we will see the gate of the cave Temnata dupka. We will keep going until an amazing view will be discovered in front of us. After a good relax we are going back, but this time we will take another path. Before we catch up the train again, we will have warm and delicious meal in a local restaurant in Lakatnik. Our returning train is at 4:43 p.m. The arriving time in Sofia is at 6 p.m.
My name is Iveta and I was born in Sofia, Bulgaria. I love to travel and I used to live in Italy, Australia, Cyprus and United Kingdom. I'm passionate about exploring and my degree in Hospitality and Batchelor in Economics of Tourism bring the value of an extraordinary experience. If you are ready to see something incredible, put on your comfortable shoes and join me in a magnificant day outside of the crowd. Light hike and a lot of nature is the best combination for a day trip.
Lakatnik is a small village on 40km from the capital of Bulgaria Sofia and on 211 from Plovdiv. Lakatnik rocks are with different high levels. The highest point is around 250 metres. The karst rock is the best for climbing. Also there is a little red house-'Orlovo gnezdo'. You can reach that little hut only by climbing. There are also a lot of caves. The biggest is Temnata dupka, but it is not open for tourist-visiting.
