With Railway Through the Mountain

The Rhodope narrow-gauge railway is a regular railway line, served by the Bulgarian Railways, and the standard conditions for travel by train apply to it. You can get on and travel from any station or stop along the route, the largest of which are Septemvri, Velingrad, Yakoruda, Razlog, Bansko and Dobrinishte. There are 4 trains one way every day. If you want to travel by narrow gauge and come by train to Septemwri, we recommend that you buy a ticket for the desired destination on the route of the narrow gauge directly at the starting station of your trip. For example, if you come from Sofia and want to travel to Dobrinishte, at the Sofia station ask for a ticket Sofia-Dobrinishte, and do not buy a ticket only until September.

Every year Bulgaria takes part in the European night of museums. More than 50 museums and galleries in the whole country open their doors free of charge for the event. It is held normally on the Saturday closest to the International Museum Day which is the 18 May. During the whole day you can visit as much museums as you can and discover the rich Bulgarian culture and traditions.
