In August 2012 I visited Musala Peak (2925 m) and my rating is 5/5.

Highest peak in Bulgaria. You can visit it in one day. There is a lift to the lodge Yastrebets and after that you follow a well-defined path that leads to the top. The climb is not very difficult exept the last part just before the top. For this last part there are two tracks - one which winds its way to the top and the other one is very steep and secured with metal rope. At the peak there is a new meteorological station. Then I reached the top there were so many people that I felt like I am in a center of a city.

Tips: If it is a sunny day, take sunscreen and а hat. The best time to visit is early in the morning, when it is less crowdy.

The central spire of Jesus Christ is to be surmounted by a giant cross; the spire's total height (170 m) will be one metre less than that of Montjuïc hill in Barcelona as Gaudí believed that his creation should not surpass God's.
