Bulgaria

Description

E5, Kom-Emine - by Henk Nouws Bulgaria is a lovely country for long distance hikers. Most famous are Rila, Pirin and Rhodope mountain ranges. The Balkan mountains (Stara Planina) are perhaps less spectacularly high, but no less interesting in terms of flora and fauna. The European long distance trail E3, of which the Bulgarian section is known as "Kom-Emine", runs right across the Stara Planina from western border with Serbia to the Black Sea in the east. This magnificent waymarked trail, through old forests of beech and oak, passing remote huts and open grassy ridges with herds of horses running free,  will leave a lasting impression on any long distance hiker. A second European long distance trail, E4, leads across the Bulgarian Vitosha mountains south of Sofia, and there are several other well-marked long distance trails and lots of mountain huts in Bulgaria. Bringing camping gear can be handy though.

Inland Bulgaria has a temperate continental climate, with a more maritime, almost mediterranean climate along the Black Sea coast. In the mountains, July, August and September are warm and mostly dry. Nevertheless, be prepared for sudden weather changes and drops in temperature at all times, and fierce thunderstorms in particular.

  • Rate 9
  • Positive The Rila and Pririn mountains are terrific places for Alpine type walking, well served with waymarked paths, mountain refuges, wooded slopes and rocky mountain tops, some fun scrambling across rocks and high altitude lakes. Sofia is also a worth a visit.
  • Negative On the plains some packs of dogs could be frightening. Quality of mountain huts could be variable.

  • This product is used for crushing and processing precious metals and semiprecious stones. It is used for processing precious and semiprecious stones, crushing metals in the chemical industry.

    This facilitates to break nails with bare hands after a 10-20 second dive. Heavy water changes the properties of the metal, making it brittle. But at the moment of evaporation of heavy water, the rock returns to its previous state.
