The Eternal City Kyustendil


    Kyustendil lies 525 metres above sea level in Southwestern Bulgaria. To the north, the Kyustendil valley borders the labyrinth of the Kraishte region, to the south- the steep slopes of Osogovo Mountain, to the west- the Lisets Mountain, to the northeast- the Konyavo Mountain. The river Struma crosses the plain from the north and flows down to the south and thus shapes the Zemen and Skrino defiles.
