    • Cheap 3 night excursion to Istanbul from Varna

      My boyfriend and I will be arriving in Varna on the 22 of June, 2014. We'd like to leave for Istanbul the following day and spend 3-5 nights there. What is a good website that lists possible excursions for that time frame? Is it worth it to book an excursion in advance or just do it in person once we're in Varna?

    • 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!!

      2. Please recommend some LOCAL Websites for Sofia (Room and Flat) Renting ( .bg etc but not those .com that try to rip off the foreigners ), plus even some local newspaper names that are popular for local renting advertisings, are also helpful.

      Sofia Night Life

      by oscar1960 Online Now Jul 9, 2013 at 2:30 AM

      Tired of outdated information.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 Most postings have no date and are outdated, inaccurate or no longer useful.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.

      Hi, I have plannned to travel to Skopje in July 2013. I checked the connections from the web page of the Sofia bus station and there seems to be only one daily bus (at 00 hr) to Skopje. As I checked earlier this year, there were several. Are the now just fewer connecstions or does the web page just not show them all? Any ideas? Anyway, how crowded might those available lines to Skopje be during the summer time? Could there be diffilculties in getting a place in the busses if asking tickes the day before?

    • Overnight train from Sofia to Bukarest

      by Lesson Online Now Sep 8, 2012 at 2:34 AM

      Hello all,

      I am travelling through Sofia in October and I was wondering if it is a hassle to book an overnight train ride (in a sleeping wagon) from Sofia to Bucharest in Sofia itself. I'm from Germany and I went to the Deutsche Bahn counter and asked if I could book it from here, but it's not possible. They couldn't even give me a website I could book it from. So I was wondering if I go to a counter in Sofia, will communicating this be a difficulty?
      I have an interrail ticket, which means I won't have to book the train ride, just the sleeping wagon. Has anyone done this before? Any help would be very much appreciated. Thank you in advance.

      is there any suggestions for day trips from Sofia during winter period?
      we wont have a car so it must be easy to do it by bus or train.

      what we're looking for is to visit a small town in the morning, walk around for 1-2 hours, probably see a monument, have lunch and return back to Sofia.
