Lopushna Monastery "St. John the Forerunner" is located at the foot of the Stara Planina, near the village of Georgi Damyanovo, 21 km from Montana. It can be reached relatively easily by car driving on the road from Montana to the town of Chiprovtsi.
Ogosta Dam is the fourth largest by area surface and the second largest by water volume artificial reservoir in the country. The reservoir is designated as suitable for industrial fishing and has a great variety of fish. Presently, the water from the dam is almost not used for irrigation purposes, but mostly for the production of electricity in the two hydroelectric power plants – Kosharnik HPP and Ogosta HPP. On its shore is situated Augusta sports and entartainment complex.
Kom Peak is a peak which is located in the western part of Stara Planina, south of the town of Berkovitsa.
