Rila, Pirin, Stara Planina and the Western Rhodopes are mountains of extraordinary beauty. Their altitude is over 2900 m above sea level. The longest of all is Stara Planina which divides the country into two detached parts: northern and southern. Called also the Balkan, this mountain has given its name to the entire peninsular. Nature has moulded interesting phenomena as caves, gorges, rock pyramids.

Rivers are numerous, but not very long and deep. Coastal, riverside and mountain lakes and swamps are not big and are few in number, but some of them are preserves acknowledged worldwide. Part of the biggest natural resources of Bulgaria are the healing mineral springs scattered all over the territory of Bulgaria – over 600 natural springs, some of them being equivalent to the most famous spa and mud-treatment resorts’ waters worldwide by their composition.
