At the end of the week the cable car was open, rising and descending from the cable cars increased 12 lava (return + return). A ride to the cable car cost 12 lava to the taxi. The length of the ascent/drop in the cable car takes about 40 minutes, (dress accordingly). Surfing equipment can be rented at the top of the mountain. There's also a nice, inexpensive restaurant for a snack or something hot. It's a really nice big time to spend a few hours.
An absolute piece from Heaven. Fresh air, away from the crowd & beautiful nature all in one place.
Lovely place most see in Sofia if you pass by
