The Trigrad Gorge

The Trigrad Gorge is a 7-kilometer defile north of the village Trigrad, beneath towering marble cliffs cut over millions of years by the Trigrad River.
In places the cliffs are some 300 meters apart, but in a considerable portion of the gorge, for some 2-3 km, they are only separated by about 100 meters. Because this narrow road is squeezed between the river on one side and the sheer cliffs on the other, travelers get the impression that Trigrad is much more distant than it is, and that the village is guarded by stone fortress walls closely guarding the mountain’s secrets. The massive cliffs that toward the upper part of the road seem to almost touch each other, that seem to steal the very sunlight, present visitors with a humbling sight, and the considerable natural beauty of the surrounding Rhodopes completes the unforgettable picture. The road through the Trigrad Gorge leads to the picturesque village of Trigrad, where tourists will find a warm welcome. The village offers overnight accommodations and can arrange other tourist activities. Near the village there are a number of hiking trails that allow visitors to further appreciate the beauty of the region.
