Balkan Peninsula

The Balkan Peninsula includes numerous mountain ranges, including the Dinaric Alps, which run north-west along the Adriatic Sea coast; the mountains of Greece; and the mountains of Bulgaria. Bulgaria's mountains include the Balkan Mountains, which extend west-east for 350 miles through central Bulgaria, to the Black Sea. South of the Balkans, the Rila and Rhodope Mountains are comprised of several isolated massifs that stretch southward from Sofia, Bulgaria's capital city, to the Aegean Sea. Here rise the highest mountains of Bulgaria, Musala (2925 m) and Vikhren (2,915 m). Another significant mountain, Cherni Vrukh (2290 m), rises in isolation immediately south of Sofia.
