What to expect?

Enjoy a tour from Plovdiv and discover the wonderful bridges in the heart of the mystical Rhodope Mountains. Visit the impressive Asen's fortress, and admire the ancient Bachkovo monastery and its remarkable frescoed walls and icon of the Virgin Mary.

Begin the tour with a drive from Plovdiv to the spectacular bridges, situated high in the stunning Rhodope Mountains, 1,450 meters above sea level, and admire these unique marble bridges formed by the erosive activity of what was once a high-water river.


Continue the tour with a drive to the picturesque Bachkovo monastery, the second largest in Bulgaria and over a thousand years old. Admire the sacred icon of the Virgin Mary dating back to the 14th century that rests inside, as well as the striking frescoed murals of the monastery's walls.


The last stop of the day is at the impressive Asen’s fortress, nearby the charming town of Asenovgrad. Explore the remarkable remains of King Ivan Asen's fortress and discover the nearby ancient 12th-century church painted with authentic pieces of iconography as well as the stone-made inscription carved by King Ivan Asen himself.

Thanks for our brilliant guide for providing this great excursion. Wonderful Bridges are a famous attraction of Bulgaria – must-see by every tourist. Bachkovo Monastery stroke with its size and grandeur. This quite place suits well for making a short stop and thinking about your soul. The atmosphere of devotion and silence inspire you and made feel relaxed. I liked being there. A great tour, worth doing.

Adored this tour. The bridges are very spectacular and one of them amazes with its size. In its fractures many bats, birds and insects find their home. Standing on these bridges makes you feel a tiny man in a huge world and you have nothing to do except admiring the majesty of nature. The bridges afford fine views of forests and blue sky. I loved this place. One of my favorite experiences in Bulgaria.
