      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.

    • From Peco Lukoil to Varna city centre

      by eigna007 Online Now Aug 2, 2016 at 11:45 AM

      I will travel by bus to Varna but the bus company just suddenly informed me that the drop off point will be changed to '500m dupa iesirea din Varna spre Ruse, autostrada A2'.
      Can anyone give me the idea where it is and how far is it from the city centre, or the train station? Is there any bus connection? Since I am entering from Romania, I wouldn't have any lev with me. I am worried now.

    • Bucharest to Varna

      by eigna007 Online Now Jun 4, 2016 at 4:28 AM

      I searched for bus from Bucharest to Varna for August and found one leaving at 6 and arriving at 11:15.

      The bus stop in Bucharest is at Calea Grivitei nr.158, in which the website says is at Metrou Basarab. However, I cannot locate the exact stop in Varna, in which the website says it's Catedrala 'Adormirea Maicii Domnului'. Can anyone tell me where exactly it is?

    • Open Soccer Fields in Varna City?

      by VarnaVisitor Online Now 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?

      I'm stocking up for a house party and everyone likes red wine. Any guidance as to the good value local wines would be appreciated, and also good places to buy!

      If I'm buying 10 or 12 cases, would it be a good idea to go direct to one of the vineyards?

      Wines that we like are medium to full bodied reds. Tempranillo, rioja, barolo, cab sav's some merlots.
