Only one day will make it possible to visit three of the most important landmarks in Bulgaria – the Old Town of Plovdiv (1,5-hour drive from Sofia along the motorway), Bachkovo Monastery and Assen’s Fortress with a professional private local guide only for you.

Plovdiv is the second-largest city and the cultural capital of Bulgaria. It is a significant economic, transport, cultural, and educational centre and it has been considered to be one of the oldest cities in the world. One visit there will make you wonder why you haven't visited it before! And if you have been there before, you know what we are talking about...

Bachkovo monastery is a major Eastern Orthodox monastery in Southern Bulgaria. The monastery is known and appreciated for the unique combination of Byzantine, Georgian and Bulgarian culture, united by the common faith. It's history dates back to 1083 when it was founded by Prince Gregory Pakourianos, and until today it is one of the most important monasteries in Bulgaria.

Last but not least, you will visit Asen's Fortress, a medieval fortress in the Bulgarian Rhodope Mountains. Asen's Fortress is 279 metres (915 ft) above sea level and arguably it is one of the most impressive attractions in Bulgaria.
