If you’re looking for golden beaches and beautiful blue waters then the Black Sea coastline is the perfect place to start your holiday in Bulgaria. From the cities of Burgas and Varna and the resorts of Primorsko and Sozopol to the numerous quiet coves along the way, there’s a stretch of sand to suit everyone. But a trip to Bulgaria isn’t just sunbathing and snorkelling, it’s a captivating journey into ancient history. The Roman amphitheatre in Plovdiv, the Thracian tombs, the Tsaravets Fortress and the numerous secret caves and ruins are all places of huge significance and atmosphere.
A holiday in Bulgaria is ideal for those who want to do something different, and nowhere in the country offers such magnificent scenery or such pure escapism as the Eastern Rhodope Mountains.
Bulgarian holidays are heaven for hikers, bikers and skiers, with miles of walking trails, deep forests full of bears and wolves and no fewer than seven mountain ranges at your disposal. And even if you’re just here for the scenery, a gentle exploration of the Pirin National Park, the tiny Orthodox village churches and the abundant crystalline lakes will keep you happy for days. Whether you’re visiting the Rila Monastery and the Nevski Memorial Church in Sofia or sampling local wines in the restaurants of Veliko Tarnovo, a holiday in Bulgaria will be an inspiring and unforgettable experience.
