VIDEO: Road Trip Through Bulgaria – Part 2: Seven Rila Lakes and Rila Monastery

Last year we visited Bulgaria. We did a small roadtrip visiting Sofia, Plovdiv, Burgas  (Sunny Beach) and Rila (see the links for the blogs!). Took some digging but we finally made a video about our trip in Rila, visiting the Seven Rila lakes and the Rila Monastery.  Check our latest video out below!

      Yeah, Sofia is awesome! If you ever get the opportunity to go back to Bulgaria be sure to pop by Rila :).

  2. I can see the top of your post, but the video isn’t showing up.

  3. Sorry, after I posted the message, the video popped up! Looks like a stunning sky ride on a beautiful day. Love the colors on the artwork at the monastery.

    Reminds me how truly beautiful Europe can be. Looks like it might be good skiing too in winter! Nice!

  5. Nice video. Bulgaria is a must visit place. How old is this monastry?

    • Robert Dolmans

      Hey Nikhil, yes it is! Bulgaria is underrated! The Monastery was founded in the year 946.

  6. I can’t wait to visit Bulgaria! I’m headed there at the beginning of next year. Around what time did you go? Those mountains look incredible!

  7. Beautiful scenery! I really want to go on a hike there now… Or even stay up there in a tent watching the sunrise over the mountain lakes in the morning 🙂 Thanks for sharing!
