"Smolyan" Top 5 Page for this destination Bulgaria Off The Beaten Path Tip by bijo69

Bulgaria Off The Beaten Path: 98 reviews and 175 photos


Smolyan is the biggest town in the Rhodopi mountains. The development of Smolyan was pushed by the communists leaders starting back in the 1960ties and the city centre is immense for a town of just 35.000 inhabitants. The Historicam Museums, the Art Gallery and the Planetarium are well worth visiting.
Smolyan is good starting point for hikes in the Rhodopi mountains.
