Kiril Meadow

Plovdiv & Southern Mountains

A piece of tranquil nature compared to the tourist bustle at Rila Monastery, 7km southwest, this verdant, pine-backed area has picnic spots and a simple guesthouse-cafe. Kiril Meadow is also the starting point of well-marked hiking trails. By car, take the cobbled road that bends behind the monastery and follow signs to Kirilova Polyana.
