I highly recommended Avatar Extreme Sport. All the members of my family tried it. We had an amazing time, the weather was fantastic and the view was breathtaking. I have already booked a time to fly during the winter. The view and the whole experience can't major with nothing I have tried before. I was a little afraid at the beginning but I felt more than amazing at the moment we set off the ground. The instructor is very skilled and amusing, he made us all feel safe and enjoy the whole flight. Me and my family highly recommend it and we guarantee that it is an unforgettable experience.

Lake Kleptuza

Reviewed By Peter Z - Sofia, Bulgaria

The park is nice but small. There is a lake with ducs and very nice restaurants around the lake. The food in the restaurants is not good and they are kind expensive for this area

Alibi Cocktail and Coffee Bar

Reviewed By vidoass - Sofia, Bulgaria

On this main street of Velingrad there is a lot of coffee bars but this one is remarkable for the elegant style, the nice looking green outdoors and the variety of the cocktails served there. I personnally got an ice cake and a capuccino and they was fantastic. A good place to take a look at the people walking on the main street and to comment their looking and behaviour:).

Wonderful riding in the region, the guides try hard, but the horses need more training. A novice rider will enjoy, advanced riders going for a hack should be prepared for a bit of a struggle with the horse

Historical Museum

Reviewed By BrianBaity - Salt Lake City, Utah

Velingrad has a rich history and in this museum you can see many examples of this. For me, I found the displays of decorated eggs particularly interesting. Also, there is a section dedicated to an opera singer born in Velingrad. As a lover of the arts, I really like how this museum has tributes to how the arts and history have common grounds

6. Palms Bet

Otetz Paisiy Str. 2A, Velingrad 4600, Bulgaria +359 88 238 7266

As you may know Velingrad is one of the most popular Bulgarian spa treatment resorts. It is rich at mineral waters and you can spend a pleasant time there. But in the very heart of the city there is a place offering another type of relax and refuge from reality. The gaming hall Palms Bet in Velingrad could "garnish" your vacation with some positive emotions, adventures and winning experience.
