Noted for its diversity, Bulgaria's landscape ranges from mountainous peaks covered in snow to valleys and lowlands giving way to the coast of the Black Sea.
The Balkan Mountains cut across the central part of the country, while the Rhodope Mountains run through southern Bulgaria, along its border with Greece.
The highest point in the country, located in the Rila Mountains, is Musala Mt., at 9,594 ft. (2,925 m).
Moving on north of the Balkan Mountains the fertile lowlands of the Danubian Plain slope gradually down to the Danube River.
The south-eastern lowlands (Maritsa Basin), drained by a series of small rivers, slope to the Black Sea.
Major rivers include the Danube River, as it forms the northern border with Romania, and the Iskur, Maritsa, Struma, Tundzha and Yantra rivers.
