At 2529 m Musala is the highest mountain in Bulgaria and in fact the highest of all Balkan mountains. It was given its current name in the 15th century by the Ottoman. The Bulgarians themselves originally called it “Tangra“ after their god of the sky. The first historically documented mountaineer to climb the mountain was the father of Alexander the Great, Philipp II. of Macedonia. Conquering the mountain does not require special equipment or skills.
