1. From Sofia: Private Day Trip to Melnik and Rupite
Escape the hustle and bustle of Sofia and discover the charm of the Bulgarian countryside on this day trip. After getting picked up from your hotel in Sofia, begin the journey to Melnik, the smallest town in Bulgaria, nestled in the Southern slopes of Pirin mountain and famed for its red wine production. Spend some time exploring Melnik's unique buildings, museums, and churches before breaking for lunch at a local restaurant. After lunch, continue to the nearby Rupite area, a place considered as a sanctuary because of its associations with the Bulgarian prophet Baba Vanga, who famously predicted Brexit and 9/11. Visit the house where Vanga spent the last few years of her life, as well as the church she built, before beginning the journey back to your hotel in Sofia.
