The project – it-maps, iskartour, started in 2003 with the preparation and elaboration of a map for the creation of a mountain biking complex in the Lakatishka Rila region and the northern slopes of Malyovishka Rila, part of a project of Rila National “Park” and Ecotourism Association “Rila”, which project remained unrealized and in order to realize the costs I had incurred in the work around the preparation, I finished the map and in 2005 I issued it as the first printed edition of the map “Northwestern Rila and Borovets” – the first printed edition of the maps of it-maps, iskartour.

Initially, the it-maps, iskartour project included and developed alternative tourism, in particular mountain biking tours, ski trekking and off-piste descents, known as backcountry, trekking, sport cраgs and alpinism, and last but not least, paragliding.

In 2012, in view of the economic conditions and the deteriorating economic environment, I decided to stop work on all tours, events and competitions and focus on creating my own cartographic material.

Since 2006, I have a license from OCAD Profesional, a software originally developed for creating maps for orienteering competitions and over the years has become a powerful CAD system specialized in creation of cartographic material.

Related to date – 2022, the project it-maps, iskartour, is funded entirely by me and is 100% my personal initiative and investment.

The project continues to develop and will continue to focus on the creation of cartographic material of hard-to-reach areas and mountains of Bulgaria.

About mе, I am a former orienteering competitor, orienteering coach and I have taught skiing, alpinism and orienteering at Central Mountain School “Hristo Prodanov” – Malyovitsa.

My second education is financial, specialty insurance management – Academy of Economics “Dimitar A. Tsenov” – Svishtov, but this has no connection with the project : )

Special thanks to all partners and clients, without whom the project would not exist, with wishes for many happy and trouble-free trips in the unique mountains of Bulgaria.
