    • 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

    • 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...

      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

      I've just booked a girl holiday to Sunny Beach for a week and with it being my first time visiting Bulgaria I've been asking round about what to expect with prices getting different replies, I was wondering if it is as cheap as I've been told?

    • 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?

    • Orchidea Boutique Spa

      by tracybowdler Online Now Feb 25, 2010 at 1:56 PM

      Hi everyone planning our first visit to Golden Sands this August with my husband and 18 yr old daughter. We have looked at lots of hotels and are still undecide where to stay. The Orchidea Boutique Spa looks and sounds lovely but would like a bit more information on the place and the surrounding area as there are not many reviews on Trip Advisor. Also is it as reasonable to eat out in Golden Sands as people say??? How much spending money would you need for an average day for three adults ?? ( Staying B&B) We're not very big drinkers but would like to do a bit of sight seeing...... any suggestions for places to visit within easy reach?? Thanks in advance

      Changing Currency Warning

      by miarcerts Online Now Aug 10, 2006 at 7:14 AM

      Just returned from Bulgaria and even with the greatest knowledge was ripped for £20 at a Golden sands beach currency changer. Got desperate to get £100 changed to get gifts and went to one that apparenly was offering 2.84. After they took cash and asked my wife to sign ... silly I know ... they gave her 2.29 and said the 2.84 was "selling price". Please make sure before you hand over cash that its the rate for "buying".
      I decided to take a photo of the place which is on The beach promenade just in from far left of Golden sands. I tried to take cashiers photo, but after 1 minute I was approached by a by a bulgarian thug who said "NO CAMERA" and "not my problem" and left in no doubt , ( gun inside his shorts ) to leave.

      Have Picture ... if anyone wants it please email as I don't want anyone else to get street mugged as we did.
