Bulgarian National Parks

Bulgaria maintains three (very large) national Parks: Rila, Central Balkan, and Pirin. Together they comprise more than one third of all Bulgaria. From all that I've read and heard, it's clear that Bulgarians value the outdoor world highly; all ages of citizens make time for weekend hikes and the Hiking Club at the American College of Sofia thrives (hurray for Brett! And me!). Check out the new link on the "Bulgaria Links" sidebar called "Bulgarian National Parks" to see beautiful photos and read about the hiking trails in these preserves.
