Asenovgrad, an outlying destination with no nearby major cities, is 95 miles (153 kilometers) to the southeast of Sofia, the country's capital.

Sit among the cheering crowd and experience what goes on at a PFC Botev Plovdiv game. Just travel 11 miles (18 kilometers) northwest of Asenovgrad to Hristo Botev Stadium. When you head to one of the local bars, you'll be greeted by a crowd of people proudly sporting yellow and black, the vibrant team colors.

See more of the area by venturing just a short distance to St. Bogoroditsa Petrichka Church.

Roughly 11 miles (18 kilometers) to the northwest, you can find the Roman Forum and Roman Odeon, in Plovdiv City Center. Another location not too far away to discover is Plovdiv Old Town with all of its interesting attractions, like St st Konstantin and Elena Church and Historical Museum.

Just about 30 miles (48 kilometers) south of Asenovgrad is Pamporovo, a regional center that contains the Pamporovo Ski Resort, FunPark Pamporovo and Stoykite - Snezhanka. For even more fun, go to the Smolyan Lakes - Snezhanka and Studenets 2.

Cuisine is an important part of any journey, and to truly experience a place is to try its local dishes.

Locals will tell you that kiselo mlyako (yoghurt) and kashkaval (yellow cheese) are among the region's most frequently used ingredients.

Trying the local cuisine can be fun. The most sought-after choices are shkembe chorba (tripe soup) and tarator (cold soup).

Don't go to a local eatery without asking to try mliako s oriz (rice pudding), a popular local treat.

In Rhodopes, locals enjoy some lighthearted banter over a glass or two of zagorka, a delicious beer here.

Mineral water is a non-alcoholic refreshment and a local hit. It's definitely worth sampling!

The perfect way to impress the locals is to attempt to learn their language, so use some elementary Bulgarian expressions. For example, "Iskate li da tancuvame?", which means "Would you like to dance with me?", can be heard spoken from time to time. Add "Otkãde si" ("Where are you from?") to the list and you've already enhanced your conversational ability.

This nation generally celebrates Liberation Day on the 3rd of March. So, if you're planning to visit on that date, you can observe any local festivities.

When you have spent your last levs and said, "Doviždane" to Asenovgrad, you'll be set to start researching the next adventure!

You should know that the closest major airport to Asenovgrad, Alexander the Great International Airport, is located 75 miles (121 kilometers) to the south.
