With predominantly steep slopes, the massif is composed of crystalline rocks. Building stone (Vitosha syenite) is quarried here. There are broad-leaved deciduous, mixed, and coniferous forests as well as mountain meadows. Mineral springs are found in the foothills. The Vitosha is a national park and preserve with tourist facilities, rest homes, and a funicular.
