      URGENT!! 15 days in Bulgaria - Please advise

      Bulgaria Yesterday

      Where to go/stay economically? From whom to rent a car? What to do/see? What to buy? What to eat?

      We are arriving at Sofia Airport in the last week of August 2015 with our TWO CHILDREN, 4 YEARS OLD, and would like to rent a car to go around Buglaria, stay at a few (4 or 5) different places for a few days each time in economical hotel apartment accommodation, going out day trips around the area, before moving on to the next place of stay and would be grateful of advice as to:


      and "Where to go/stay economically, from whom to rent a car, where to go, what to buy, what to eat?"

      Before we return to the airport to fly back home.

      PLEASE LET US KNOW AS SOON AS POSSIBLE as we need to make booking very soon now - we only bought the flight tickets so far.

      Thanks a lot!


      PS - Would it be good/advisable to cross into Romania too - what to see?

      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?

      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

      by dlandt Online Now 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!

      Logistic question

      by ohaiyo Online Now 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

      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

    • Need bus details from Sofia to Skopje

      by johnmayp Online Now Feb 28, 2014 at 1:34 PM

      Hi all - I need to travel by bus, one way, from Sofia to Skopje on 19 April 2014. The schedules and companies that I've read thus far are far from clear. I'd ideally like to find something leaving SOF mid-afternoon on the 19th of April for a late arrival in Skopje but, again, I'm not finding recent or decent schedule, company or time information. I have found something named 'matpu' but their website doesn't have an English translation available. Since I will be in Sofia for such a short period of time, I really need to be armed with this information before I arrive in Sofia. Anyone that has any information would be most appreciated!!

      Tired of outdated information. Online guides are useless. Most postings have no date and are outdated, inaccurate or no longer useful. The question is: Where does a middle aged man can go out at night in Sofia? Folk, rock & roll, disco, lounge, retro music its all the same for me so music type its not an issued for me. Just looking for people my age (or as close as possible to my age bracket) hang out places.
