Maljovica is one of the most beautiful summits of the Rila mountain range on the Balkan Peninsula. Maljovica is 2729 meters high and the mountain complex is situated in south-west of Bulgaria. The Bulgarian Rila mountain range is built of granite, marble and crystal slates. In the mountains there are almost 100 summits that are higher than 2 thousand meters, 7 of which over 2500 meters. Apart from a beautiful panorama of the Bulgarian massif, the harsh climate of the Rila and average temperature of minus 10 Celsius degrees in winter attract the fans of winter sports. Snow lingers there for 8 months, and on some areas it lingers all year.
