Bulgaria is rich in history; where in remote villages, locals can be seen riding their donkey to work. They still eat their own home grown vegetables and make their own cheese.
Food and wine is central to the Bulgarian culture. Their cuisine is mouth watering and they enjoy delicious wines, and serve excellent coffee throughout the day. The restaurants are welcoming as are the Bulgarian locals.
Entertainment, cafes and snack bars cater for all tastes, and there are a range of modern purpose built resorts for tourists to choose from. The entertainment includes Bulgarian traditional songs and dances which have carried them through for many, many years.
Bulgaria not only has a strong culture, but also has a colourful coastline, featuring forested mountains, and sandy beaches contrasting with dark jutting cliffs and perilous rocks. The coastline is split into two regions, based on the international airports of Bourgas to the South and Varna in the North.
For a European destination, Bulgaria’s ski and beach resorts are very cheap. It doesn’t cost much at all to enjoy the mountains, monasteries and mosques. Bulgaria is rich in contrasts with its dramatic mountains and vibrant seaside towns. A cost efficient holiday to Bulgaria is becoming quite an attraction for tourists who like to get away from it all, on a budget, but appreciate beauty, history, cosmopolitan beach resorts, verdant forests, mountain lakes and exciting skiing.
Although not an obvious beach holiday, Bulgaria has very fine beaches which can be found all along the coastline. Nessebar and Sunny Beach are said to have golden sand, whilst Varna, St. Konstantine and Golden Sands offer fine sand beaches. The Black Sea is ideal for swimming and is safe for children, due to its lack of tides.
Whether you’re in to skiing or real history and culture, Bulgaria remains an affordable option for a great family holiday.
