About this place

The Seven Rila Lakes are a group of lakes of glacial origin, situated in the northwestern Rila Mountains in Bulgaria. They are the most popular group of lakes in Bulgaria. The lakes are situated between 2,100 and 2,500 metres above sea level.

Each lake carries a name related to its most characteristic feature. The highest one is called Salzata ("The Tear") due to its clear waters that allow visibility in depth. The next one in height has the name Okoto ("The Eye") after its almost perfectly oval form.
