Part 14 - Belogradchik and Vidin, Bulgaria

The next day, we docked in Vidin, Bulgaria, and had a bus tour of Vidin and the nearby town of Belogradchik ("small white town").

First, in Belogradchik, we visited the Belogradchik Fortress, built into an eerie rock formation, part of the Belogradchik Rocks.
