The only town in the gorge of Iskar river is Svoge

The only town in the gorge of Iskar river is Svoge (8 351 citizens, 520 metres above sea level). Svoge is situated in the widest possible part of the gorge - it is where the Iskar River flows into its big left feeder, the Iskretska River. The town is 40 kilometres to the north of Sofia and 60 to the south-west of Mezdra. It is a resort with clean and fresh air, located among the most breath-taking of natural surroundings. Some 10 kilometres to the west, in the valley of the Iskretska River, one can visit the village of Iskrets, which hosts one of the biggest sanatoriums in the country for people suffering from lung diseases.

The past of the town of Svoge and the surrounding villages is reflected in the Archaeological Museum. The St. Paraskeva Church has preserved interesting frescoes from the 16th and 17th centuries. There is a monument in honour of the sacrifices in the war of 1912-1918. The town hosts the Kraft Jacob’s Suchard Co. – a chocolate producing company.
