    Great day hiking from Golden Bridges
    Both our hotel concierge and the tourist information office in town recommended hiking from Golden Bridges. Easy to get to on the very frequent 63 bus from Krasno Selo metro. A variety of trails can take you all the way up Black Mountain, if you choose. Easy to flow paths with a fair amount of altitude gain and some lovely views.

    Fantastic day out
    Beautiful mountains behind Sofia. Easy to get there. Catch the metro to Vitosha and then the number 66 bus as far as the Moroni Hotel which is where the bus terminates. There are lovely walks with stunning views.

    Only twenty minutes away from Sofia
    After exploring the great city of Sofia, I needed to be outside in nature. Twenty minutes by car later, I enjoyed walking at the base. An extra plus was visiting during Spring where everything was lush and vibrant. My escape was a nice break from the capital.

Beautiful mountain, unbelievably close to the capital city ....just in 30 min from the hustle and bustle of Sofia center, you can enjoy a fresh mountain air, stunning views and /why not?/ a relaxing drink in a cosy restaurant, or if you are good enough a real mountine hike or skiing expirience. Prisless and very rare treasure for a capital city.

A lovely mountain that envelopes the city of Sofia. As it surrounds the city it brings an air of freshness an makes you realise it’s all around in every direction which is unusual.

Hotel concierge checked online and the lift was operating. After a taxi ride we arrived and the ski lift was closed. No explanation offered so had to return to our hotel.

I walked from my hotel to the Dragalevtski Monastery, a 30 minutes walk up into the VItosha Mountain. Then walked on a 4 km path from there to the Boyana church, most of it in the forest in the mountain. A nice walk, even in the rain.
