One of the reasons to love Sofia is that it is surrounded by beautiful nature and it offers many options for day trips and escapes from the city crowd within less than an hour. The Pancharevo lake is located about 12 km from the city centre, at the end of the Pancharevo Gorge of the Iskar River. In Pancharevo you can submerge in the beautiful nature, an hour or so and you will be completely restored both physically and emotionally. Around the lake there are hiking trails, several park areas with coffee shops and restaurants. Pancharevo offers plenty of opportunities for sports and recreation activities. It is suitable for sun bathing, fishing and water sports like kayaking, suitable for adults and children.
