Лозенска планина / Lozenska mountain

Lozenska Mountain is small mountain, nestled on an area of about 80 square meters. It can be presented as extremely beautiful and picturesque, especially in autumn. This is also the period in which I visited this attractive place… The eye of Lozenska mountain.

Where is located The Eye of Lozenska Mountain ?

Will you believe me if I tell you that the place is less than 30 km from the center of Sofia? Honestly… this beauty is so close to the big city and at the same time it emits an incredibly strong sense of isolation… I took from Sofia to Dolni Pasarel and parked the car at the beginning of the Ecopath Lozen Mountain, against stop on bus №3. The road up there reveals beautiful views, and the dyed with different colors trees help make them even more beautiful.

A little more about the ecopath

The ecopath is very picturesque and the other end is in the village of Dolni Lozen, crossing the mountain through the panorama Polovak peak. From there in clear weather are revealed views of Sofia, Stara Planina, Vitosha, Rila, Iskar Dam and Lozen. The length is about 12 km and it passes for about 3 hours, as the difficulty is comparatively low. The start is located exactly on the designated the road lay-by, there is an information plate.

Looking for the perfect place…

Now… to the Eye… I had found pictures of the place on the internet and I did not know exactly where I was going, but I walked down the aisle, crossing the dam on the bridge. From here began to reveal themselves great panoramic views…

Already crossed the other side, I started up in a pursuit of a dreamed photo and search for the perfect shooting space… The path is visible very good, and the fallen leaves and the overhanging branches create an incredible way a colorful tunnel, of which you want to never go out… I continued patiently to walk along the shore of the dam and enjoy the silence and indescribably beautiful scenery. I believed, that if we could save a small part of that, which I see… will be a success!

Conquered by thoughts and feelings, in one moment I realized, that I certainly missed the place… after moving away from the water. There was a slight worry that I would not find him and the desired photo will stay reverie, but after a little wandering… I succeeded! It is about 1 km from the bridge. Tripod, camera…  the perfect symbiosis between the unmoving water and the colorful heights reflected in it… The view resembles eye and creates the feeling that the mountains are watching you… As the English writer George Eliot said: “Is not this a true autumn day? Just the still melancholy that I love – that makes life and nature harmonise.”.
