Three major rivers flow through southern Bulgaria: the Maritsa, the Arda, and the Tundzha. Springing from the most prominent Bulgarian mountain ranges, they carve, wind and splash their way though ravines and canyons and across plains, passing by cities ancient and new, before they finally join together just after the border with Turkey and flow south until they reach the Aegean.
