By Car from Sofia to Rila
We started our journey toward the Rila Monastery at 17:30, and we had about 97.8 miles to cover. There's a lot of traffic on the first 22 kilometers of the trip, as you're going through all the suburbs of Sofia, cars, traffic lights, traffic jams and potholes. Then we got on the E79 a new highway for 14 kilometers. After we were still on the E79 motorway but not even he can be considered fast track for another 28 kilometers. We reached Rila around 19:10, after straying into Kocherinovo for a littl while. By the way, a subsection. Don't get off at this village, which is what makes access to secondary road to Rila.
