Vitosha mountain is one of the treasures of Sofia and it is hosting one of the oldest natural parks on the Balkans. The nature reserve was founded in 1934 by decree coming from the former tsar of Bulgaria - Boris III. There is a biosphere forest reserve and turf forest reseve, as well as one natural landmark - Duhlata cave. One of the attractions there is the so called moraines "Golden bridges". The stone rivers (also known as moraines) and the screes are typical for the Vitosha Park. The stone river in the locality of The Golden Bridges (1,390 meters altitude) is impressive. There are many tourist paths in this part of the mountain: leading to the Kopitoto peak, “Momina Skala” hut and “Septemvri” hut. The Golden Bridges is one of the most often used starting points for Charni Vrah peak (2,290 meters altitude) - the highest one in the mountain.
A stunning panorama opens when you pass by the old abbandoned lift station. From Kopitoto peak you can see the majority of Sofia below your feet.
