Septemvri - Dobrinishte narrow gauge railway

Reviewed By Susies1403 - Sleaford, United Kingdom

Train enthusiasts - this one's for you. Narrow gauge railway between Septemvri and Dobrinishte. Takes a long time with stops in two stations where you wait to pass the trains coming the other way. Quaint old fashioned carriages. Whole journey takes about 5 hours but goes through stunning mountain scenery and passes through interesting villages and towns, including Velingrad, a renowned spa town. Can link to trains on Sofia to Plovdiv line so could be used to visit Bansko ski village.

Lake Kleptuza

Reviewed By Peter Z - Sofia, Bulgaria

The park is nice but small. There is a lake with ducs and very nice restaurants around the lake. The food in the restaurants is not good and they are kind expensive for this area

Cave Snejanka

Reviewed By BrianBaity - Salt Lake City, Utah

I find the wonders under our planet of particular interest. There is a well travelled path within the cave and excellent multilingual tour guides to answer any of your questions. The title I chose is due to the fact that you can see tiny bats waiting the day away hanging upside down on the cave walls. You must look close, they are quite small and hide well.

Historical Museum

Reviewed By BrianBaity - Salt Lake City, Utah

Velingrad has a rich history and in this museum you can see many examples of this. For me, I found the displays of decorated eggs particularly interesting. Also, there is a section dedicated to an opera singer born in Velingrad. As a lover of the arts, I really like how this museum has tributes to how the arts and history have common grounds

Museum of Ethnography

Reviewed By Matias M

I don't know a lot about Bulgarian culture but was very interesting visit this museum.
I could see how was the normal bulgarian life. I enjoy to stay there and if someone of you want visit Pazardjik I think this museum can be a good place to visit.

Bessa Valley Winery,

Reviewed By beetcanner - Southern Nevada

The owners are doing everything right here. The vineyard is immaculate. The Thracians cultivated vineyards 3,500 years ago in this same clay-limestone soil. In fact, this vineyard is situated on land, which is an ancient Thracian village known as Maltepe. Arrange a wine tasting. You'll be so glad you did. I'm not a wine drinker yet my friends convinced me to join them and I have no regrets. The staff of 4 we met live and breath the business, art and craft of winemaking. They were a pleasure to spend time with. The winery tour is just a few minutes learning about the technology and the tasting occurs in the barrel room, oozing with ambiance. See their website: www.bessavalley.com/

This is one of the most important and interesting places to visit in a town. There are many ancient sources and articles and the galleries are rich with many paintings.
Here you can see one of the best Bulgarian creators ever.
So you must see this place and feel the atmosphere of antiquity and beauty.

This is a very educational museum for the young generations and in the same time it compels nostalgic emotions in the old generation. Some of the plates from communist times are quite hilarious :-)

St. Dimitar Church

Reviewed By Smileee3 - Sofia, Bulgaria

'St Dimitar' church is located in the village of Patalenitsa (15 km away from the city of Pazardjik, 52 km from the city of Plovdiv and 115 km from the capital - Sofia) and it's a very good example of well-saved medieval bulgarian church. It dates back to late 12th century and a legend says that before the Ottoman invasion (XIV century) people from the village decided to bury the church, because it was the best way to save it. Then time passed and everyone forgot about the church, but in the middle of XIX century a man saw a metal cross coming from earth. Then people from the village remembered the legend about the buried church and discovered it. After that the building was reconstructed and in 1971 the church became a national-art-cultural monument.
When you enter the church you will be impressed by its old and well-saved frescoes. The building is also well-saved. Unfortunately some that valuable frescoes has been stolen and due to the lack of tourists the church is not constantly open. But I think it's a very interesting cultural monument and if you pass nearby, you have to visit it. If the door of the church is locked, you will find a phone number written on the door (in case there is no number written, you can ask in the municipality building or somewhere nearby). A very kind lady will come and will tell you everything about the church. There is no entrance fee, but people usually leave some money inside the church.
If you are interested you can find some additional information in the web site of the village of Patalenitsa (there is an English version there).

House-Museum of Stanislav Dospevskiy

Reviewed By Olga s - Sofia, Bulgaria

Имя художника, точнее, творческий псевдоним - Станислав Доспевски. Родился в Самокове, но с Пазаржиклм была связана большая часть его личной и творческой жизни. В центре города на улице Княгини Марии-Лузы нельзя не заметить ухоженный дом с вывеской и информационным табло, да еще и со скульптурой художника. Входной билет - 2 лева. Поговорите с экскурсоводом Наташей (как мы с ней, прямо в гостиной), и она поведает вам семейные тайны, расскажет о творчестве и жизни художника, его трагической гибели в годы русско-турецкой войны, потомках художника и оригиналах его картин.
