    • Any vineyards nearby to visit?

      Sozopol Apr 9, 2015 at 11:46 AM

      Anybody may advice, if there are any vineyards nearby (within, say 50km range) Sozopol? We will be there end of July, sure would be nice to relax on the beach, but we will not do it for a long time, surely will be wandering around. Would be nice to visit a nice vineyard, Bulgarian wines are really good.

    • Black sea Accomodations - small on the beach

      Bulgaria Mar 24, 2015 at 8:55 AM

      The 2 of us are traveling to Bulgaria this July 2105 and we are looking for small, mid-to-high end accommodations on the beach, preferably the southern part of the Black Sea.
      Not the family-holiday package accommodations that we see, but more private and reserved....can be an Inn or a B&B or whatever. Traveling with our own car, we are flexible.
      Any suggestions or exposing hidden treasures would be welcome

      Logistic question

      Sofia Mar 6, 2015 at 11:15 AM


      I am planning a one week vacation in Bulgaria in September before heading to Romania. My itinerary is Sophia, Rila Monastery, Plovidiv, Bachkovo Monastery, and Veliko Tarnovo. I will be traveling by myself. I am wondering if one week is sufficient to cover all the places mentioned. Is there a train system or bus system that connects all these places? I am not a good driver so I prefer not to drive. Also, how would I get to Bucharest, Romania from Veliko Tarnovo?

      Thank you

    • Spring vacation - Stara Planina?

      Bulgaria Mar 5, 2015 at 2:55 PM

      Hi -

      We've decided to spend our one week spring vacation in central Bulgaria (hopefully enjoying it as much as we enjoy the southern (and higher) mountains of Rila and Pirin... We'll be staying at Tryavna (thanks johngayton for your recommendation), but we actually have decided to rent a car instead of going on public transportation. W'll appreciate any suggestions regarding places that can be reached within less than 90 min by car from Tryavna. We're interested especially in nature and photo opportunities, less in history (unless it's very photogenic... ;) ) Any hidden secrets about amazing natural beauties, scenic drives, authentic ethnographic traditions and locations, etc. will be very much appreciated...

      Please keep in mind that we'll be travelling on last week of March - so I guess some of the trails won't be in a good state... (Hopefully we won't get a rainy week...)

      Thanks again, Ana.

      P.S. As we'll be driving to/from Sofia - any info about interesting places on the way there and back will be appreciated too...

    • Suggested plan for a spring vacation

      Bulgaria Mar 4, 2015 at 1:45 PM

      Hi -

      We're about to book a spring vacation in Bulgaria. We've been there a few times already (most spent around the mountains, one at the beach), and now we're looking for a nice place to spend a week - without renting a car. We would like to be able to enjoy the beautiful scenery and maybe some local spring festivals (I heard there's something going on on the last weekend before Easter).
      Our first choice would be Bansko - just because we enjoyed it so much last time, in the summer.
      Any other suggestions?
      We haven't been up north at all (except 1 short visit to Veliko Trnovo about 20 years ago), and we LOVE high mountains (but not skiing!!), spring flowers, local food and local culture. We enjoyed festival at Gela very much last summer.
      We're planning to get "there" (wherever it'll be...) by public transportation, and rent a small place (preferably an apartment, or a room at a local family hostel, not a hotel ! )
      Dates of travel would be 27th March till 3rd April.

      Any suggestions for a tranquil and beautiful place to spend a week at?

      Dear All,

      I am a new member here and I feel a bit confused as I tried to find some travel information online, which however seemed inadequate.

      I intend to travel to Sofia soon and from there take a coach or the train to Athens Greece.

      I can find no available phone number/ contact details or online booking form to arrange for my journey from Sofia to Athens, so kindly I am asking for any suggestions on where I could look at!

      All the best

      Quiet Beach Location

      Bulgaria Sep 25, 2014 at 10:16 AM

      I appreciate that Bulgaria is becoming more and more busy as a tourist attraction What we are looking for is a very quiet "village type"resort with small hotels and no night clubs mainly just restaurants and Taverna type places. To be able to stroll peacefully without masses of crowds.

      Possibly some Bay along the coast
      Don't know much about Bulgaria other than visiting Nessebar on Sunny Beach which was far too noisy and busy for us for our main holiday

    • Buying sleeper train reservations before arrival in Bulgaria

      Bulgaria Sep 4, 2014 at 10:53 AM

      I am trying to find an agent or some other means to purchase a single berth sleeping car reservation for Ruse to Istanbul and Istanbul to Stara Zagora in October?
      I know it would probably be easier to go by bus but I enjoy rail travel so would like to make that part of my holiday.

      Ideally I'd like to have the reservations in my hand before I leave England so a UK agent or someone that could post them would be my preference (failing that to be able to collect them would work).
