TICKETS AND FARES
The regular fares of the Bulgarian State Railways (BDZ) apply to the Rhodope Narrow Gauge as well. The ticket price depends on the distance between start and destination. Reduced prices by 50% apply to students and seniors only when they possess a special card that is being issued by BDZ and is rather hard to get as a foreigner. Still, this is possible, so if you are interested, please contact us through our contact form below for further information.
