Natural Sights and Reserves.


There are many reserves and natural sights in the Rhodopes, which are an attraction not only for the tourists, but also for environmentalists. Most of the reserves have preserved black pine-, spurce-, pine- and oak- forests. The trees are about two hundred years old, with thick trunks and roots. By the shady riverbanks, clumps and bouquets of the rare Balkan endemit Haberlea-Rhodopensis can be found in spring.
The majestic mountainous landscape here is notable for its heights, narrow gorges and hillsides.
