How to Go to Rila Seven Lakes;
Rila Seven Lakes is somehow hard to navigate from Sofia Central Bus due to (1) this is not famous yet to locals and (2) its very hard to find someone who can speak english. Even so, please see the following table how did I go there via public transportation. Entrance fee costs 18 BGN that includes chair lift return ride. Photography and video taking is allowed.

Rila Seven Rila Lakes are without a doubt one of the most notable natural attractions on the Balkan Peninsula, a dream destination not to be missed. The lakes have been named for their shapes and qualities. The highest of them is Tear Lake, which gained its name for its crystal-clear water. It is 2,535 meters high. Next is Eye Lake, the deepest of the seven at 37.5 meters. Somewhat lower than Eye Lake is Kidney Lake, named for its kidney shape, which has a surface area of 85 hectares and steep rocky banks. Next comes the Twins. Wide at both ends and narrow in the middle the lake resembles an hourglass. During dry years, the lake becomes two smaller lakes, and this is the source of its name. Farther down the trail are Three-leafed Lake and Fish Lake. The Seven Lakes Shelter is on the banks of Fish Lake. The lowest lake is appropriately called Lower Lake, which feeds the Dzherman River. The lakes are all connected by narrow streams.
