Enjoy lush landscapes, pastures, meadows, hills, and the alluring play of wild horses at sunset! Discover the beauty of mountain rivers and clear streams that suddenly transform into untamed waterfalls often above 60 meters high. Climb a smaller peak, or go down a cave, simply for the joy of it. The braver can rappel down a cliff, and the bravest down a river canyon. Meet wild, pristine, exceptional nature. Yes, meet Balkan, the mountain that gave its name to the Balkan peninsula. Welcome to the Balkan mountains, a unique nature park!
