      Tour or independent

      Bulgaria Feb 3, 2017 at 5:53 AM

      Investigating Bulgaria for 2018. Should I go independent as I had for the rest of Europe or do an organized tour.
      I do not drive, so renting is out and I'd need to use public transportation.

      Bus Schedule from Veliko Tarnovo to Plovdiv

      Veliko Turnovo Jan 15, 2012 at 11:38 PM

      Hi there,

      I will be visiting Bulgaria in spring May 2012 and I am having difficulty trying to find the bus schedule online from Veliko Tarnovo to Plovdiv as I am trying to plan my trip.

      Can someone advise:

      1) There are 2 bus stations in Veliko Tarnovo. Which station has the most buses leaving to Plovdiv, in terms of frequency? I would like to take the earliest and direct bus eg depart around 8 to 9am as I could like to reach Plovdiv by noon.

      2) Is there a bus schedule where I can check the timing of bus leaving Veliko Tarnovo to Plovdiv? I found one link; търново&end=пловдив
      but unsure if the timing is still valid. It states there is a bus leaving 8am from Bus Station West and arriving Plovdiv at 12:20. Service carried by: Patnicheski Prevozi Ad

      3) Must I purchase the bus tickets in advance? Or can I just purchase on the day of departure? Will the bus tickets get sold out?

      4) I cannot read or speak Bulgarian but I will print out and learn the Cyrillic alphabets and cities in Cyrillic. Will I encounter difficulty buying a bus ticket in Veliko Tarnovo as I understand there is not much English speaking people in the bus station?

      Thank you in advance!

    • Coaches from Sofia to Veliko Turnovo - do they stop on the way

      Veliko Turnovo May 4, 2011 at 12:36 PM

      Bulgaria is fascinating .... and Veliko Turnovo looks the most interesting place of all.

      The thing that's putting me off going is the length of the coach trip I'll have to take from Sofia. I get really travel sick (I know, I know, it's a bit pathetic) and the prospect of a 4 hours trip without stopping is a bit daunting. Do coaches stop on the way for a break????? Are there some companies that stop and others that don't?

      I caught a coach from Sofia to Plovdiv last year ..... both of them were great places,but the journey was a nightmare. The coach was fine - it just didn't stop, and I was almost sick. My bad.

      So your responses could dictate whether I go or not!

      Does anyone know whether train 4641 (Shuman to Plovdiv via Veliko Turnovo) will run in July? The BDZ website gives no train available for the journey at all. If it is still running/will run, is it VT depart 0834; Plovdiv arrive 1342?

      As far as buses go, gives two services daily at 0800 and 1330 from the Zapad/West terminal. Is that it? Does the early bus get really full in July?

      This is the first time I have used this forum. I'm after some information about the Kartala region of Veliko Turnovo. Me and my husband are seriously thinking of buying an apartment there and it will be finished June 2007. We have been in touch with property agents here in England, but it is unclear to us exactly where the apartments are being built. I have shown a colleague the building plans (which are in Bulgarian) and he says that there is a mention on the plans of a 'railway road' he thinks. Anybody out there any ideas or tips on how to find out more information.
