Centrally located in the Iskar gorge is Tservovo, an hour north of Sofia by train. Tserovo is a small village eight kilometres north of Svoge and is most famous for its rock formation ‘Djuglata’. For thousands of years, Iskar river’s immense force has created rock formations spread through the canyon. A perfect example is Djuglata, near Tserovo’s train station. It consists of horizontally layered rocks piled up until an impressive 18 metres. The interesting rock formation resembles a human head, as is said by many. The sight was declared a natural landmark in 1964.
