VRC Bulgaria: Belogradchik Rocks & Fortress and Vidin

Teresa scaled Belogradchik Fortress for a birdseye view of the surreal landscape.  Some of the outcroppings reach 200 meters. 

After we returned to the ship, we were allowed to wander around Vidin.  Much to our surprise, we discovered the Baba Vida castle which we explored thoroughly.
Heading into town, we saw an abandonded synagogue and a beautiful church out of which we saw a priest and his entourage hurrying towards our ship to give a lecture on the orthodox church.
