- Zlatnite Mostove
Zlatnite Mostove ( _bg. Златните мостове, ‘Golden Bridges’) is the largest stone river on Vitosha Mountain,
Bulgaria. The feature is situated in the valley of Vladayska River, extending 2.2 km, and up to 150 m wide, with several ‘tributary’ stone rivers. The stone river is ‘descending’ from elevation 1800 m above sea level in Boeritsa Chalet area to 1410 m at Zlatnite Mostove site. The lower extremity of the stone river is known as Zlatnite Mostove site, a popular tourist destination accessible from Sofiaby road.

The name ‘Golden Bridges’ derives from the golden colour of the
lichens growing on the surface of stone run boulders.
