Cycling trip at Park Sinite kamani (Blue Stones) , by @vesytz

Read this post on for the best experience

This weekend with my friends we had a bike weekend in Blue Stones Park.

The park is part of the Sliven Mountains and is located in the eastern Stara Planina. The territory of the nature park has an area of nearly 11380.3 hectares.

The park was declared on November 28, 1980 and its goal is to protect the specific ecosystems and beautiful nature located on its territory.

For two days we visited many places cycling our bikes.

There are over 60 springs and fountains in the park. We visited some of them:

We spent pleasant hours near Zdravkova Cheshma, where there is a shelter for tourists from the "Blue Stones" - Sliven.

The fountain was built in 2000 by Zdravko Anastasov.

We also visited the Chorbadji Zlatkova fountain. It is located 50 meters below the water supply base in Karandila.

We went to the Blue Mountain Chairlift of Sliven, where we waited for our friends, who were going downhill from a dirt road to the Kutelka reserve.

Blue Mountain Chairlift of Sliven was opened on March 22, 1974. In 18 minutes the distance of 1890 m passes between the lower and upper station. The displacement is 597 m.

We went to the Sliven TV tower:

It was put into operation in 1978. From there, there is an incredible view of the city and the entire Upper Thracian lowlands.

We continued to Lake Karandila.

It is located in the highest part of the park. There are many tables and benches around the lake, where everyone can have a picnic.

Continuing along the paths we reached Maryova Skala. Beautiful rock formation.

Nearby is a bakery from where we bought warm and delicious bread.

At sunset we were in the Kutelka reserve.

We watched the setting sun at the foot of Kutelka.

There I found this great tree.

Thank you for stopping by and walk with me through the Blue Stones Reserve.
