    • Small change for tips

      Sofia Sep 16, 2015 at 5:10 AM

      This is a last minute query (I leave tonight) but its just occurred to me that once again I shall be arriving in a country with no small change suitable for tipping hotel porters or other helpers on the journey. I shall have pound coins sterling, and a few euros ......... what should I offer the porter who carries my case to my room for instance?
      If I get the chance I can always buy a bottle of water before I leave the airport - but its not always possible in the hustle and bustle of baggage collection and customs - not forgetting the search for the transfer bus!

      hi we are coming to Burgas in October (9th) for a weekend away.

      we are looking at staying in the centre of Burgas where the best night life. rather than go to sunny beach (we assume is dead in October) we were thinking of staying in Burgas itself.

      Is this a good idea?

      should we stay near the coast or more central?

    • Sunny Beach or Golden Sands

      Bulgaria Sep 1, 2015 at 4:36 AM

      We want to go to Bulgaria next August and didn't know whether to go to Sunny Beach or Golden Sands, we have a 19 year old and a 14 year old. We wanted somewhere that we could go out to bars in the evening but that had some sort of entertainment (karaoke or bands). Also we wanted to go self catering so that we had a room with a kitchenette preferably a 2 bedroom apartment.
      Would be grateful for any advice.

    • Public transport in Sofia

      Sofia Aug 26, 2015 at 3:12 AM

      I have booked myself into a hotel which is well out of town (stupid of me I know, I should have checked the map) and have also pre-booked a tour of Plovdiv. This tour will drop me at the Alexander Nevsky cathedral which I understand is a 45 minute walk from my hotel. Will there be taxis available (there are no busses) or should I make other arrangements? I'm quite concerned about this as I'm a lone, elderly female and although I'm trying to learn the language haven't got much further than 'yes, no, please and thankyou'.

      Burgas to Sofia

      Burgas Jul 24, 2015 at 5:20 AM


      I am arriving in Burgas on a Saturday and I want to travel to Sofia the next day. I tried the rail website but they didn't seem to have a train I could book at a time that suits me. Also thought of flying which is actually very cheap but I don't really want to go straight back to an airport. Does anyone know if I could just go down to the bus station and get straight on a bus without having booked in advance?

    • Open Soccer Fields in Varna City?

      Varna Jul 14, 2015 at 6:17 AM

      I am not sure if this same question I wrote was posted or not, so trying again: are there any open spaces for teens to play some soccer / do fitness such as running, etc.? We are visiting relatives who live near the northwest entrance to the seaside park. However, in the park itself, we only see bikers and joggers, but no spaces for free play with balls / nets. I am looking for a a local school or university perhaps, or a track for running around. Any ideas for sporty teens, aside from beach? A basketball court?

      Good one or two day destinations in Serbia or Macedonia from Sofia

      Sofia Jun 22, 2015 at 7:00 PM

      Hello VTers!

      I will be making a trip through Bulgaria for two weeks in August with a native friend. At the end of that time I will be arriving back in Sofia and will part from my friend for the last three days. I want to use those three days to see another country, either Macedonia or Serbia, ideally both. I will have my ten year old daughter with me and I have read enough to know that I won't be able to drive a rental car into Macedonia and probably not to Serbia either. I am thinking that if there is a company that does daytrips to either (like get on the bus, go there, hop off, get back on the bus at the end of the day) place it would be nice. I would also think outside the box if there are other ways. Any advice or experience you want to share will be gratefully accepted!

    • Alone to Sunny beach? End of June?

      I was wondering if it's a good idea to go to Sunny Beach all by myself, my friends have no time/money sadly. But i'd still like to have a good time this year. I was also wondering if the end of June is a good period to go there since it's a bit early. As in will there be enough people around my age(23) to party/socialize with?

      I hope someone can help me out here.

      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.
