After publishing an article on the less well-known national parks across Europe, The Guardian received hundreds of responds regarding some other worthwhile destinations.

As a result, the publication issued a reader's edition to the same list, this time featuring Bulgaria's very own Pirin.

In the words of traveller Eilert Ottem, the park is “spectacular, for its jagged mountain peaks that rise to 3,000 metres, its pristine lakes and ponds and its fantastic wildlife. I’d certainly go back, urbanised rock musician that I am.”

The tourist further showed detailed knowledge of the area: “A good starting place is Dobrinishte, a peaceful town near Bansko. A nice end point would be the popular wine town of Melnik, near the lovely Rozhen monastery.”

Among the other notable destinations that made the list were:

Plitvice Lakes in Croatia


Parque Natural Sierras de Cazorla in Spain


Helvetinj?rvi (meaning Hell’s lake) in Finland


Durmitor in Montenegro


Bia?owie?a forest, located in Belarus and Poland



Caldera de Taburiente on the Canary Islands


Monti Sibillini in Italy


Butrint in Albania


Vatnaj?kull in Iceland
