A great park complex with many attractions

You cannot bring food and drinks inside the park complex. There are restaurants inside where you can have a meal or a drink.

Although it sounds like an industrial installation, it is actually a beautiful and unique place where to spend wonderful time. Imagine lots of trees, beautiful mountains, a lot of swimming pools, a lake, many hammocks and others. This is a well-designed park for recreation and having fun and it has a simply beautiful location. There are a lot of places where you can sit or lie down, relax and enjoy the view.


‘The Windmills’ are located near the capital of Bulgaria – Sofia and coming here is a wonderful way to escape from the busy and noisy city. The place is suitable for people from all ages – there are swimming pools with different depths and many attractions.


In the small zoo here, you can see peacocks, an ostrich, rabbits, deers and other adorable animals. There is an enclosed place where you can ride a horse and your children a pony. Also, there is another enclosure where you can play paintball, if you love spending your time in an active way.


If you desire some lazy and pleasant moments, you can spend hours lying in a hammock or on a sun bed somewhere around the lake – there are plenty of them.


The place is perfect for the hot summer days – you can spend hours here sunbathing and swimming in one of the pools while breathing fresh air and enjoying the gorgeous view.


One unique attraction here is the energy pyramid. It is full of different crystals. You can sit on a comfortable chair inside and let the energy fill your body.
