When traveling to Bulgaria, the Seven Rila Lakes located in the Rila Mountains (pictured in our header*), should be at the top of your list. These glacial lakes are connected by streams, each with a special name like the Tear, the Eye or the Twins.

The country has both Slavic and Turkic origins resulting in a unique mixture of cultural traditions, beliefs and language.
