They are often named after people or objects they are thought to resemble. The Belogradchik Rocks have been declared a Nature Landmark by the Bulgarian government and are a major tourist attraction in the region.Belogradchik Fortress is situated at a distance of 1.5 km from the town of Belogradchik among the renowned rocks.
