The Bulgarian contribution to the world heritage

Nine Bulgarian wonders - seven cultural and two natural sites - are included among them:
  • Boyana Church

    Located at the foot of the Vitosha Mountain in the Sofia suburb of Boyana.

  • Madara Horseman

    The Madara Horseman is situated in a very unusual place - a plateau rising in the middle of a plain which, when viewed from the west, resembles a petrified waterfall.

  • Rila Monastery

    This monastery is the most impressive monument of the Bulgarian National Revival period.

  • Nesebar Museum Town

    Situated on a small peninsula (in the immediate vicinity of the large seaside resort of Sunny Beach), one of the oldest towns in Europe still keeps the spirit of different ages and peoples - Thracians, Hellenes, Romans, Slavs, Byzantines and Bulgarians.

  • Ivanovo Rock Monastery

    This fascinating monastery is located in almost a cosmic landscape - rock massifs, embracing the picturesque river valley near the city of Rousse.

  • Kazanlak Tomb

    This tomb was built for a wealthy Thracian ruler in the 4th century B.C.

  • Thracian Tomb of Sveshtari

    The Sveshtari tomb is located near the town of Razgrad, in a region declared an archaeological reserve.

  • Pirin National Park

    Difficult to access, but exceptionally beautiful, the Pirin Mountains have attracted man for centuries, and yet, managed to remain an enigma.

  • Srebarna lake

    Srebarna is a fresh-water lake extending over an area of 600 hectares that has been declared a biospheric reserve.
