Wore the wrong shoes and wrong attire so couldn't get to the top of the mountain! Note that the area can be muddy so do wear the right attire. Nevertheless, caught a nice view of the sunset :)

A nice getaway from the hustle & bustle of Sofia and only a short journey from the city centre. You can get a chairlift most of the way up the mountain and the walks from the job offer great views of the whole of Sofia. If you go the right way there is also a pretty nice waterfall to have a look at before coming back down towards Sofia.

Vitosha Mountain can be accessed from many points. We asked advice at the tourist information office and followed it. We caught a taxi (inexpensive) to Simeonova where we got the cable car up to Aleko - only 10 Lev for a round trip. At the top are a few rather shabby buildings which are used mainly in skiing season. Basic food, chips and coffee kept us going. Lovely walk with great views over Sofia.

Its really amazing how close to Sofia you can find the tranquility, beauty and wildness of the mountain. Hiking, biking or just for a few hours away this is the best place to be. I would recommend lift Dragalevci's last station for a starting point of those who are not brave enough do the whole climbing.

Vitosha has some great restaurants and if you enjoy nature you will enjoy the mountain. There are lifts and walking trails and the large rocks are fun to climb.
