1. Paradise Sprinkler, Botev peak

The name of this water attraction in Bulgaria literally translates as “Splashes from the sky”. A picturesque waterfall, which is located at the foot of the highest peak of Stara Planina – Mount Botev.

2. Skaklia, Vratsa

This is the highest waterfall in Bulgaria, whose thin stream of water falls from a height of 141 m. It is located only 1.5 km from the city of Vratsa. Skakla does not work year-round, which should be taken into account when visiting it. To enjoy the picturesque water jets, it is best to visit this place in spring, preferably after heavy rains. You can see this miracle of nature even from the city of Vratsa. But it is better to go for a walk to the waterfall itself to enjoy the breathtaking views from its top.

3. Skaklya, Bov

This waterfall is often called “Bovska Skaklya” so as not to be confused with the previous site. It is also located near Vratsa, but not far from the small village of Bov in the Iskar river gorge. Bovska Skaklya is more popular among tourists, as it is reached by the ecological path that connects the villages of Bov and Zasele. The route is dedicated to Ivan Vazov, one of the Bulgarian writers and poets of the classics, a nature lover who often liked to walk here.

5. Krushuna waterfalls, Krushuna

These picturesque waterfalls are one of the most favorite weekend spots for Bulgarians. On holidays, there are crowds of vacationers among whom you cannot sneak.

To get to the village of Krushuna, you need to rent a car or book a tour. The journey to the springs itself from the village is not difficult, and in the summer it pleases with the opportunity to hide from the hot sun in the shade and coolness of the forest.
