BULGARIA TRAVEL GUIDE

By Ivana & Kalina - Tuesday, November 13, 2018








if you love the city...
 →  SOFIA // Sofia is the capital of Bulgaria and although we may be biased since we are from there, the city is amazing. It is filled with history (as is most of Bulgaria) and is constantly bustling. The city is easy to get around with public transportation options like the metro, taxis, and public buses.

→ VARNA // Visit the sea garden (which has an amusement park and is therefore the perfect place if you're traveling with kids!), the Varna Cathedral, and nearby beaches in this beautiful city.

→ PLOVDIV // This ancient city is full of charm. Roam around the old cobble stone streets, shop till you drop, and visit the amphitheater for a live performance (especially on a summer night!). Plovdiv has tons of cute coffee shops scattered around the city as well for you to take a break from all the walking and exploring you will be doing in the city.



if you love the beach...

→ SOZOPOL // As a major seaside resort in Bulgaria, Sozopol truly combines an "old town" feel with modern. It is one of the oldest beach towns on the Bulgarian Black Sea. Take a stroll down Old Town Sozopol to get a feel for the historical vibe of the town and make sure to get a huge Nutella crepe while you're at it!

→ SUNNY BEACH // This beach destination is the place to be if you're young and looking for a good time. Sunny Beach boasts one of the largest party scenes and there is no shortage of "fun" here! Sunny beach truly never sleeps so if you're not out at night, expect to hear loud music and talking through the night.

→ NESEBAR // Stroll along the charming cobblestone streets of this old town filled with old houses, history, and so much more. You can also take a dip in the sea and can come here for a day trip if you're staying in Sunny Beach!



for the adventurer...

→ VITOSHA MOUNTAIN // You can't visit Bulgaria without checking out the Balkan Mountains. Perfect for a hike, the scenic Vitosha mountain is definitely a must see if you love nature and adventures!

→ RILA MOUNTAINS & MONASTERY // Similar to Vitosha Mountain, Rila is another beautiful must-see destination in Bulgaria.



food to try...

BANITSA or BANICHKI // both are good but there's a big difference between the two!

BAKLAVA // if you love dessert, this one is for you. This traditional Bulgarian dessert is made with filo dough, nuts, and is doused in a sugar syrup.

 LARGE CREPES // don't miss out on the huge crepes here! I personally love crepes with Nutella so I usually opt for that but the crepe stand have tons of topping choices!
