Three Things to See in Bulgaria

Located in the Balkans, Bulgaria boasts mountains and rivers plus a coastline so it is a very diverse holiday destination and has become more popular with tourists in recent years.

Here we look at just three things to see in Bulgaria that we think will inspire you to visit this exciting country.

The Black Sea beaches

There are a variety of beaches in Bulgaria for visitors to enjoy and you are sure to find one that suits you regardless of whether you want a buzzing atmosphere or a bit of peace and relaxation.

Sunny Beach is the place to go with children as there is plenty for them to do, plus water sports to try out too. For a bit of culture try heading to Nessebar which has a lovely old town that has been named as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and markets and shops to explore.

Head into the mountains

If you love getting outdoors while you are on holiday you will have loads of fun heading up into the Bulgarian mountains where you can hike, cycle, and trek on a horse too!

There is also the opportunity to see bears north of Bankso where there is a semi-wild sanctuary that has been opened to help to protect these animals, and you can view them from the safety of a platform.

Take a look at the architecture

There are lots of stunning buildings to discover in Bulgaria including historic sites such as Peperikon, Tsarevets Fortress, and the Plovdiv Roman Theatre, plus religious sites of interest including the Boyana Church, Saint Sofia Church, and the Rila Monastery.

In Sofia, the capital of Bulgaria, you’ll find a variety of building as different architects flocked to work on the city after it was announced that it would be the country’s capital in 1879, and its new European style look earned it the nickname ‘Little Vienna’.

These are just three of the things you can see in Bulgaria, and there is plenty more to explore when you visit there on holiday! Why not order a brochure today to see what else there is on offer?
