The Rhodope Narrow Gauge Septemvri - Dobrinishte

Experience the romantic "time travel" back to the 20-th century by taking a trip on the last operational narrow gauge line in Bulgaria with the rare track gauge of 760mm: the line Septemvri - Dobrinishte!


The route has a total length of 124,7 km. It connects the Gornotrakiyska Valley with the Rhodope, Rila and Pirin Mountains. On its way it passes through the gorge of Chepinska river, stops at the SPA-Capital Velingrad and heads towards the Avramovo Saddle, which divides Rila and the Rhodopes. This is where the highest railway station on the Balkan Peninsula lies - Station Avramovo, at 1267 m above sea level. The line then follows the river Mesta until it reaches the Razlog Valley, at the foot of the Pirin Mountain, where it stops at Bansko and finally arrives at its final station Dobrinishte.

    

The little train is waiting for you every day, during each season of the year, to show you the magnificient nature and provide you with unforgettable memories!
