Located 70 mi/115 km northwest of Sofia, Belogradchik, Bulgaria, is a small town that serves as the gateway to an area of fantastic limestone crags and the ruins of an ancient fortress called the Belogradchik Fortress. This fortress was built between AD 100 and 300 to guard a Roman road. Near the fortress are paths leading to views of the dramatic terrain.

Magura Cave, 18 mi/30 km away, includes interesting cave formations and is located next to Rabisha Lake, which is the largest inland lake in the country. Plan half a day if you're passing through the area.
