Sights in Bulgaria
The Madara rider relief, sitting low on the Madara cliffs
The Madara cliffs near Shumen are a majestic sight on a bright day. The reasons to visit the cliffs are three-fold. On the top of the 100m cliffs sit the ancient ruins of some Thracian settlement. On the face of the cliff sits the thousand year old rock carving of the Madara Rider, classifying the site as UNESCO heritage. And for the hiker, trails snake up the face of the cliff, with some questionable safety rails in place to give the visitor some piece of mind. The views are worth the shortness of breath.
