Synopsis

I’ve been in a thunderstorm twice. I felt really small. I feel small generally but in the thunderstorm I just vanished, completely…

An amateur mountaineer, a smiling nature lover, a fervent hiker, an experienced dendrologist, a gentle friend of the bees and a few volunteers share their personal stories connected to the mountain. What does Pirin mean for them? What makes it a unique mountain? For how long have they been in love with Pirin? Why is it important to preserve the mountain and how does the Sustainable Mountains Initiative contribute to the conservation of Bulgarian nature?
