The Dragoman marsh is the biggest natural karst wetland in Bulgaria. It is situated only 35 km north-west from Sofia and covers a valley between the limestone hills Tri Ushi and Chepan. The marsh is a protected sanctuary for birds. Over 200 species have been recorded in the area. Some of them have a high conservation status. The area is often visited by nature lovers and environmentalists, who use for free the facilities built there: a watch tower and an eco-route. It was proclaimed a Ramsar site on February 2, 2012. At 14967 ha, it is the second biggest such site in Bulgaria after Belene Islands. See also
