Bulgaria has a rich history starting with the original peoples called the Bulgars,  said to come from the middle east, and can trace their ancestry back to Vedic times of pre-history India.

There are many amazing Roman sites throughout Bulgaria including the amphitheater at Plovdiv, the Roman baths at Varna, and locally the Great Roman city just outside Veliko Tarnovo.


On our doorstep is the historic city of Veliko Tarnovo, nominated for European city of culture. Veliko Tarnovo old town includes the Tsarevets castle which stands above the whole city. There are many fascinating areas to explore with local craftsmen and markets.


Within easy reach are Hotnitsa waterfalls which is an area of outstanding beauty. You can wander along the falls, swim in the natural pools, and afterwards have coffee in the café overlooking the whole area.  


Dryanovo monastery is set within mountains of the  Andaka River Valley, in Bulgarka Nature Park. The area is surrounded by magnificent waterfalls and is a favourite place for rock climbers. As well as visiting the monastery, you can explore the caves once used by early Neolithic people. There are many walks, and we can refresh ourselves in the cafes in the forests and listen to the sounds of the water cascading over rocks in the riverbed.


The Yoga Dharma centre is set in the mountains overlooking Voneshta voda, recognised as one of Bulgaria’s most popular spa resorts. It attracts tourists not only for its beautiful scenery, but also for its mineral waters.

Apart from the amazing yoga and our wonderful centre you get an insider’s view of the local areas and culture. Fran and Martin set up Yoga Dharma Europe 15 years ago and have built up considerable knowledge of the people and the history of this ancient area. You won’t be disappointed!
