Escape to the Turkish Village in Bulgaria (Hidden Paradise)
Rhodope Mountains/ Bulgaria / Off the Beaten Truck.

We will enjoy the nature and beautiful forests in the mountains.
We will be visiting a small Turkish village on Rhodope mountains, meet with the Turkish community in Bulgaria and visit some of the old villages where we will learn their culture.

This is a trip not to be missed at this time of the year when the weather will be just right. We will be watching stunning sunset from the mountains overlooking the lake.

The Traditional Turkish village is located in a very isolated place.
