About Strandja Mountain, Burgas
Ensconced between the Thracian plains, the Burgas lowlands, and the Black Sea, this proud mountain massif rises. Its elevation is 1,031 metres at its highest peak, the Mahya Dagi. Its area makes it Bulgaria’s largest national protected Nature Park. Many things combine to make a visit to the mountain indispensable:
Nature: The Mediterranean climate and coast had bred a great diversity of exotic flora and fauna on the mountain massif. The great mountain plateaus are wonderful too look at – undulating green forests without sudden interruptions of harsh, upthrust rock. The waters of the mountain are thought to have healing powers. There are four precious nature reserves and other protected natural sites, that tourists should be mindful off. This includes a prehistoric cave dwelling.
People and Settlements: The 19 villages and two towns on the mountain have not lost their cultural authenticity in music, dance, architecture, or even firewalking. Panagyrs, village gatherings, are held frequently every summer.
Tourists spend most of their time here interacting with the locals, cycling, birding, fishing, riding, camping or simply trekking. So long you observe the park rules, this could be a highly rewarding getaway for you.

Strandja Mountain, Burgas Reviews
Beautiful mountain that connects Bulgaria with Turkey. It's reserve that includes some of the most beautiful places around black sea. It also have beautiful roads for riding a bike ( motorcycle or bicycle)
Very beautiful and quiet. Fresh air and nature. You can relax here.
Really well kept area with plenty of different terrains and lots of wildlife. Opportunity to just sit back and enjoy acting as tourist.
Really beautiful place. If you are staying in the area, chat with the manager at your hotel who might be able to organise a tour for you. We stayed in a small town where everyone knew everyone, which helped when booking a tour.
Awesome nature with information boards that clearly explain what's what.
