Rila - Рила - is a mountain range in southwestern Bulgaria and the highest mountain range of Bulgaria and the Balkans, with its highest peak being Musala at 2,925 m. The massif is also the sixth highest mountain in Europe (when each mountain is represented by its highest peak only), coming after the Caucasus, the Alps, Sierra Nevada, the Pyrenees and Mount Etna, and the highest between the Alps and the Caucasus. The larger part of the mountain is occupied by the Rila National Park.


Hiking in the Rila mountains in spring time is a nature lover's dream. The locally famous Seven Lakes are a breathtaking reward for a day's hike and the area yields many visual treats. Meadows bursting with spring flowers abound and drench the slopes with colour.
