Destination Focus: Bulgaria


From a quiet and assuming part of Europe with beautiful landscapes and a true feeling of natural beauty. Bulgaria has spectacular mountains, an endless stream of golden beaches and cities that are so bursting with colour and life that you will feel swept up in the wonder of the moment.

Bulgaria also has some fantastic ski resorts too with a lively display of nightlife and cuisine. This is in sharp comparison to the smaller villages and towns, that seem untouched by the more tourist transformation that the country has seen and hold deep the authentic Bulgarian life and rich traditions.

One must see during your time in Bulgaria is the ancient spas. These mineral water spas are particularly found around the Black Coast area where a variety of hotels and spas have been built; taking advantage of the natural healing powers of the surrounding waters.

Bulgaria is also a place to explore, to be active and alive. Here you will find some of the most interesting mountain bike trails as well as a variety of organised mountaineering and climbing trips too. There are variety of caves and rock formations that are crying out to be discovered, as well as ancient cave paintings which will prove an interesting and one of a kind sight for those who brave the trek!

Continuing on from the nature theme; Bulgaria also some fascinating national parks that are packed full with pine and limestone rocks. It has to be said that these are not only a great chance to take in some of the stunning landscape of the country but also provide the  perfect place for those who love to get that one step closer to nature.

For those who prefer to be in the thick of things, there is plenty else to do. Why not take a visit to Plovdiv’s old city where you can not only see an impressive piece of history in the form of a Roman Amphitheatre but also enjoy a slice of the more modern life with a hub of different cafes, shops and even galleries. Some of the things that you would expect to see in a city based, cosmopolitan European holiday destination.

This is just the top of the Bulgarian iceberg. A beautiful mixture of snow, sea and city life it really is the ideal place for those with a sense of adventure.
