Samokov was just a convenient overnight stop after our hike to Seven Rila Lakes, so we had no expectations about the town. However, it was a very pleasant place to wander around and enjoy a coffee at a sidewalk cafe. The town had a number of traditional Revival style homes, beautiful churches, water fountains, a mosque, and a great pedestrian area.
