Departure at 7.00 a.m. in front of your hotel. Drive to the Asenova Fortress. The best preserved and most notable feature of Asenova Fortress is the Holy Theotokos of Petrich Church from the 12th-13th century. It is a two-storey cross-domed single-naved building with a wide narthex and a large rectangular tower, and features mural paintings from the 14th century. Visit to the famous natural phenomenon Chudnite Mostove (Marvelous Bridges), located in the heart of Rhodope Mountain, close to the village of Zaburdo. Walk around in the region of the bridges. The unique rock bridges are most probably result of an ancient cave collapsing in an earthquake. Atmospheric processes have shaped the two natural marble bridges of extraordinary beauty. Drive to the village of Bachkovo. Visit to Bachkovo Monastery. Tour of the monastery, which dates back to the 11th century and is one of the most important and well preserved Bulgarian monasteries. It is known and appreciated for the unique combination of Byzantine, Georgian and Bulgarian culture, united by the common faith.
