I’m looking forward to the spring. It is not that I don’t like the winter but I already hanged some white winter pictures on my wall and now it is time for the shades of green. In my memories I’m traveling to a beautiful waterfall – Polska Skakavitsa. In that times I was very enthusiastic about photography but I didn’t have a blog to share my travel experience.  So I will share it now.

Before you begin your trip you should decide what transport you will use. You can go to Polska Skakavica by car but the road is not good and I decided not to try it. Instead me and my friends took the train – we are big fans of trains. We took the Sofia-Kyustendil train and we travelled 2 hours before we reached the stop Skakavitsa.  I think now there is no direct train from Sofia to Skakavitsa and you should change trains in Radomir or Pernik.

We arrived to Skakavitsa station – another nice place that has lost a part of its beauty.  I wouldn’t be surprised if the building does not exist anymore..  But let’s stop with the sad story and move on to the immense beauty ahead.

We had to go walk along the rails on our way to the waterfalls. Luckily this rail destination is not very busy and we could walk untroubled through the forest. We passed by a tunnel and then followed the trodden path.

The fifty metres high jumping beauty is visible from afar. So we opened the tripods even before we reached the waterfall. This is maybe the only waterfall in Bulgaria that is not shrinking because of the erosion, but the opposite – due to its limestone water it is getting bigger every day.

Our adventurous spirit couldn’t be beaten by the lush trees and bushes, the chute or our complete ignorance about where we are going, so we started to climb along the river. And we found ourselves exactly under the awesome spray of water. Then we saw another group of enthusiastic people. We connected the two groups under the big water drops and together we left this big shower.

It is amazing how this small creek could make so awesome and lush waterfall. When we went to the top of the waterfall we saw the creek and also a small church. This neighbourhood named “The Waterfall” is not very busy but we found out that recently they had had a small Festival of the Butterfly.

On the way back we met two people on the train station. Both of them were from the small village and they had been there to see their old homes, but they say they didn’t live there anymore. We were chatting when the diesel train arrived and took us to wild Sofia. We said goodbye to the Green Heaven…
