Back in time with the Narrow Gauge Train

Travel back in time on a scenic old time-style train that will take you across a series of mountains in Bulgaria. Only one of the several narrow-gauge train routes in the country has survived up to today, connecting people who live between the town of Septemvri and the mountainous town of Dobrinishte.


This exciting incentive journey takes us aboard The Narrow Gauge Train with the width of only 76 centimetres. The train will take us past mountainous landscapes and several tunnels, before reaching the highest train station in Balkans – Avramovo. The narrow-gauge train line is included in the European Railway Timetable Guide, which presents the most interesting railways in Europe.


The route itself passes through interesting towns and villages, some of which are worth visiting. Velingrad is known for its mineral springs and spa hotels of all ranges, from luxury to affordable. The town was named Balkan Spa Capital a few years ago and is one of the best places in Bulgaria to turn a weekend into a wellness retreat.
