The tour starts at 9.00 with a pick up from your hotel in Sofia. To Melnik you have about 2,5 hours drive. It is considered the smallest town in Bulgaria, nested in the South slopes of Pirin mountain, among sand pyramids with queer forms.
The findings from the antiquity discovered upon the archaeological diggings testify for its centuries-old history. Melnik is declared a natural and architectural reserve and it attracts thousands of tourists annually. The wine which is produced by the unique Bulgarian brand Wide Melnik Vine has a wonderful quality, scents of ripe cherry, herbs, and in the presence of oak it develops nuances of tobacco and leather. It is one of the attractions of the town and the region, and it attracts many admirers from the whole world.
In Melnik you will visit some of its famous house- museums, which have preserved authentic furniture and decorations from the 19th century, and some of its old churches.
You will have time for a lunch break in a local restaurant and after it you will continue to the nearby “Rupite” area, located about 30 km. away from Melnik. This place is considered as sanctuary because it is associated with the famous Bulgarian prophet Vanga, who spent the last years of her life there. Near the house where she was living in 1994 was built the church Saint Petka, which is interesting with its different style of frescoes and icon paintings.
The expected return in Sofia is at about 7pm.
