Bulgaria is one of those eastern block countries that combines both classic European landscapes with a more rugged Mediterranean countryside while cutting through mountainsides, it has some fantastic roads on offer.

The road we’re map exploring today is the road from Troyan to Karnare just a couple of hours east from the capital Sofia, and we’ll start just outside the town Balkanets.

Recommended cars

The surface is a little questionable, with dirt and sand occupying the road as well as the top layer coming apart for a lot of the way. So a car with good grip levels and compliant suspension is the the order of the day.

  • Subaru WRX STi
  • Golf R
  • Civic Type R
  • Alpine A110 (if you’re feeling up for it!)

The surface does start out a bit rough but hang in there, it will get better. A caution for motorcycles however with plenty of deep grooves. At least the corners are marvellous!

Wait! What’s this? Better road surface? Gradually things are improving.

Keep at it, and watch those corners as plenty have dirt, gravel, and sand lining them. But persist up to where the hotels and villas start and you’ll be greeted with better scenery and surface.

Now we are getting into it! Up we go and now we can really start the see the beauty of the countryside as well as being able to see through the corners a little better. You’ll also be greeted with the imposing Monument “Arch of Freedom” which is well worth a visit.

Soon though the surface goes back to a bit unpredictable, but at least you’ve still got that pretty scenery.
