Private Balkan tours Day 1 Our Private Balkan tours start from Sofia and goes to Thessaloniki
Private Balkan tours start… 310 km, 4 hour drive (Bulgaria – Greece)
Your private Balkan tour starts from Bulgaria. In the morning we leave Sofia for Rupitе. This is the place where Baba Vanga (Grandmother Vanga – one of the most famous prophets of the world) had received people for almost 25 years before she passed away. Rupite is a sacred place, which the forces from above suggested to her. When Vanga was asked why she chose this site to spend the rest of her life and to build the temple she said mysteriously: “I have my time here. This site is very special. I use it like an accumulator and it gives me energy and power. A terrible fire burned there in the past and a great secret is hidden in the ridge above us.”
Many more secrets are hidden in Bulgaria. In order to discover them, you need to choose one or a few of the private tours in Bulgaria. You should let yourselves become part of that inspiring place as well.
Proceeds to Thessaloniki
Following a lunch break, your private Balkan tour proceeds to Thessaloniki, Greece. Then we pass the border and we arrive in Thessaloniki. The name of the city comes from Alexander the Great`s half-sister. Cassander of Macedon founded the city in 315 BC. Thessaloniki is Greece’s 2nd major economic, industrial, commercial and political centre. It is the only city in Greece that has ministry building (Ministry of Macedonia) outside of capitol, too. In Thessaloniki we will visit Ataturk’s house (the founder of the Republic of Turkey), the White Tower, St. Dimitrios Cathedral, the Statue of Alexander the Great. We will also visit Venezelo and Constantine statues, Vardar, Eleftherios, Macedonia and Aristotle Squares.
