The Belogradchik Rocks

The Belogradchik Rocks are approximately 30 kilometers long, 3 to 5 kilometers wide and up to 200 meters high. Those bizarrely shaped sandstone, limestone and conglomerate rock foundations are located on the western slopes of the Balkan Mountains, near the town of Belogradchik in northwest Bulgaria.

Many rocks have fantastic shapes and are associated with interesting legends. They are often named for people or objects they are thought to resemble. The Belogradchik Rocks have been declared a Natural Landmark by the Bulgarian government and are a major tourist attraction in the region. They were formed 230 million years ago. Some of the most magnificent rocks among them are the Madonna, the Horseman, the Monks, the Lion, the Bear, Adam and Eve, the Castle and the Dinosaur. The name of each rock is a creation of the brain of the local people. The flora and fauna in that region are really diverse. Here one can see animals such as the black stork, small vultures, awls, wolves, wild hogs, red deer and imperial eagle.
