Visiting Bulgaria. Where to go?
January 26, 2007 10:22am CST
I'm planning a 2 week trip to Bulgaria this summer (July or August). I would like to stay near a beach for the relaxation and have day or short stay trips to other places, e.g. Sofia. Are you Bulgarian or visited Bulgaria? Where would you recommend I stay? What places must I visit? Thanks

I went to Bulgaria years ago when it was stll a communist state. It is an interesting country and we stayed at Golden Sands. Although I am sure it is alot different now and maybe more commercial. The majority of holiday makers were Russian and it was a real insight into how people lived through communism. Not one McDonalds was there then!!! Nessebar was a very interesting old town. I hope you have a great time. I hope it has not been spolied through commerialism.

Sofia is one of the most unfriendly places in Bulgaria - just a big city with lots of nervous people and dirty streets. You'd better visit the Black sea coast - Varna, Burgas, Nesebar, Sozopol and so on. Also one may find interesting places like Veliko Turnovo, Etura, Rodopi mountain, Kazanlak and many more.

hi there - sorry - I've just joined the mylot.com and I think now is little late for answering - but nevertheless - if you want a calm stay - go to Ahtopol on the south coast; if you want to visit discos, enjoy extra night life - go to Sunny Beach - you'll be only 10 mintes away from the international world heritage - the old town of Nessebar. Or if you like nice nature, one of the best destinations is Kavarna and Kaliakra cape. For more information, you may visit a web page I've found - with plenty of good information about Bulgaria- www.the-bulgarian-insider.com! good luck!
