Belogradchik is a town in northwestern Bulgaria in the Vidin Province. Belogradchik, which literally means "small white town," is situated in the foothills of the Balkan Mountains just east of the Serbian border, about 50 km south of the Danube River and 182 km northwest of Sofia. The town is famous for its unique and impressive rock formations, the Belogradchik Rocks, which cover an area of 90 square kilometers and reach up to 200 meters in height. This natural phenomenon Belogradchik Rocks has been nominated for one of the New 7 Wonders of the World together with Grand Canyon in USA, Ayers Rock (Urulu) in Australia and other incedible creations of the planet Earth.
Another tourist attractions in the area are the nearby Magura Cave, famous for its beautiful prehistoric cave paintings from the 9th-8th c. B.C. These are real masterpieces of the prehistoric art in Southeast Europe. There are perfect conditions for the production, conservation and aging of sparkling wines (suitable humidity and permanent temperature of 12°C). Wine tasting is also organized in the cave.
Another popular landmark is Rabishko Lake - one of the oldest tectonic lakes in Europe. Prepare your photo cameras, as you can have good luck to see the Bulgarian Loch Ness – the big water bull “Rabin”. The legend of its fearful trumpet, described by a local people is still alive.
