Photos: the tourist route Kirilova Polyana-Dry Lake in Bulgaria

Adelina Marini, 15 November 2010

If you want to get away from your daily life and to enjoy pure air, magnificent nature, silence and solitude, a good offer is the averagely hard tourist route from Kirilova polyana (Kirilova meadow - some 7 km above the Rila Monastery in south-west Bulgaria) to the Dry Lake. In order to reach the Kirilova Polyana you have to pass by the Rila Monastery. Climbing from the meadow to the Dry Lake takes some 2 hours but if you are more dynamic it might take an hour and 45 minutes. You can have a look at the photos in the gallery to the right (by clicking on each) in order to get an idea of the path and the scenery. And on your way back we recommend that you drop by the Rila Monastery for the traditional mekitsi (fried paste) and bread, and also to light a candle in the church in the monastery. We recommend, however, that you do that indeed on your way back (in the afternoon), because before noon on Sundays it is overcrowded around the monastery.
