      Logistic question

      Sofia 59 minutes ago


      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 21 hours ago

      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...

      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 Yesterday

      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?

      What to visit in Sandanski neighbourhood

      by MacedonianUK Online Now Jun 21, 2011 at 5:09 AM

      It is impromptu visit at Sandanski spa for 4 days.
      Now I am not idle person and I can not stay in one place.
      As I have ants in my pants, I have done bit of sightseeing.
      Just come back from Melnik and Rozhden monastery.
      For me it is a kind of pilgrimage as I have visited the grave of the Macedonian Revolutionary Jane Sandanski.
      That done, I am ready for new explorations.
      Can you guys recommend other places near by worth spending day trip on??
      Or suggest winery or two??
      I have car do driving is no problem at all.
      Many thanks!

    • Sandanski or Bansko?

      by Travellingboy Online Now Sep 25, 2006 at 10:43 AM

      I am visiting Bulgaria next month. Two reasons, one to see it before it gets spoiled and two to possibly buy a holiday home. From my limited knowlege and what research I've done I'm torn between Bansko and Sandanski.
      What are the views of other forum members,
