Visit Bulgaria

Bulgaria provides you access to the western side of the Black Sea. You’ll find incredible beaches waiting for you there, beautiful churches to explore, and fantastic trekking opportunities. Winter sports are easily accessible thanks to its location in the Balkans as well, which means a visit to this nation can be tempting all year long.

Each region offers a different opportunity to enjoy Bulgaria.

Popular resort areas, such as Golden Sands or Sunny Beach, bring out the full potential of the coastal areas along the Black Sea. Ancient communities like Sozopol and Nesebar introduce you to the authentic culture that this country offers. You can also explore communities like Rousse or Lovech, near the Danube River, and the picturesque vistas that can be found there.

If you’ve never visited Bulgaria before, plan to spend some time in the area around the Maritsa River. This region contains many sites from Thrace, with several of them listed as world heritage sites. One of the world’s oldest cities, Plovdiv, has had evidence of habitation that dates back over 8,000 years. You can explore to your heart’s content.

You’ll find numerous outdoor opportunities to explore thanks to Rila National Park, Nature Park Bulgarka, and Central Balkan National Park. Whether you prefer the mountains, the beach, or a little of both, there is something for you to be found here.

From skiing to snorkeling, diving to beautiful drives lined with ancient castles, Bulgaria is one of Europe’s exotic treasures. Beautiful landscapes, quiet lakes, and the whispers of history await your arrival.
