Photographer's Note

One of the most picturesque places in Bulgaria-the town of Smolyan-situated in one of the most beautiful Bulgarian mountains-Rhodopi mountain.The people of Smolyan call it Rhodopa.
The air in spring in this town is so fresh and clear, with the sweet aroma of lime- and pine-trees. Not far from Smolyan is the famous winter resort-Pamporovo. A tip to travellers there. There's no train to there,only buses, cars or taxis from Plovdiv can take you there.The road to Smolyan is meandering through the mountain folds, a challenge to even experienced drivers. So, if you don't feel sure enough, I wouldn't recommend you a daring ride there. It might end disastrously for you, but the scenery from the window is breathtaking.
This photo is again among my scanned favourite oldies.
Hopefully,you'll enjoy it.
Ah, another interesting fact about Smolyan is that in the centre of this town you can see the only monument to the mythic Orpheus.
