Pirin is on a relatively small area – 2,585 square kilometers, but its peaks with height of over 2.500 meters are 50; there are 170 lakes, some of which are organized in whole groups, numerous mountain rivers with trout, circuses, valleys, hollows, moraines and saddles which are included in various tourist routes. The rivers are short but deep and with a large slope. Because of this, they are lush and form beautiful waterfalls between 9 and 15 meters high on their way to the Mesta and Struma rivers. On the Bulgarian territory Struma is 290 km and Mesta – 126 km long. They are surrounded by scenic landscapes along the Pirin National Park, and their high water and rapids attract fans of rafting and kayaking from all over the world.

Champion in Pirin mountain is Vihren peak which with its 2,914 m above sea level is third in the Balkans. The beauty and significance of the mountain is appreciated by the world community, with one of the three reserves under the aegis of UNESCO, the other one is in NATURA 2000. The flora and fauna are rich, some species are included not only in European but also in the world protection lists. The mountain has centuries-old forests of white pine, white fir, fir, dwarf-pine. Among the protected trees there are some with a proven age of 1,000 years and Baikushev’s Black Pine (Baikusheva cherna mura) near Bansko is more than 1,300 years old. Tourists invariably include it in their route because it is one of the oldest trees in the world. There is also a very diverse bird world – woodpeckers, titmouse, wood-grouse capercalzie, rock partridge. This whole palette of beauty has so far made the Pirin nature a fascinating, exciting experience that fills you with vital energy.
