The nature of the area is the real show stopper though, with Vaya lake, the largest natural lake in Bulgaria that is a popular fishing spot, Atanasovsko lake which is a great place to go bird spotting (with more than 70% of all of Bulgaria’s bird species living here), Mandrensko lake that has one of the largest bird migration ‘highways’ passing over it each year and a variety of wetland areas and pretty gardens.
