Samokov is now a very attractive town and does not deserve the bad press it has had in the past. There are attractive lakes and seating areas in the town centre as well as being surrounded by lovely countryside.

Nice construction. If you travel in Samokov you can make a stop at the Big Drinking Fountain and, why not, try the water.

The Big Drinking Fountain is near the buss station. Its great place to take a selfie or tag yourself in the city.

Nice historical fountain found in a small Bulgarian town which doesn't have much to be proud of. You can't miss it. It's right in centre by the bus station
