Триград (Trigrad)

As the name suggests, Триград (Trigrad), literally "Three Towns," is actually not one town but a merger of three different towns. Sort of like Budapest but not really.

One thing that makes Trigrad interesting is the mix of Orthodox Christians and Muslims as is evident by the church and mosque practically on top of each other.

And the town's setting is tough to beat.

One of the sights (and smells) of fall in Bulgaria: peppers roasting.

Another sign of fall: wood gathering.

The main road into and out of Trigrad leads to the Триградско ждрело (Trigrad Gorge), a seven kilometer chasm that begins about a kilometer outside the village.
