I will arrive in Kalofer the day after tomorrow and have booked the first two nights. I then want to explore the region a bit deeper.
Would anyone know of a remote farm or any kind of very rural guesthouse in the mountains where I could stay two or three nights?
I would like it to be remote and scenic and preferably difficult to get to.
Any ideas? Or how to find one?
Right now we're finishing our week in Sofia and heading to Plovdiv for a week and a half. After that we'd like to spend a couple of weeks on the coast and ending in Ruse, as we're then heading to Romania. We love being near water and are aware it will be chilly and quite at the major resort towns on the Black Sea (which is fine).
My question is, coming from Plovdiv, where on the coast would be the best to visit? And then would it make sense to head to Ruse, before heading to Romania? We will…
I'm planning a one week vacation in the beginning of April. Mostly moderate hikes with my 6 year old.
Looking for easy hikes in the forests.
Is Bansko or Borovets recommended? What about Vitosha?
I'm looking for a town which has a few easy walking paths nearby and some activities for a rainy day.
Bulgaria, Sunny Beach, Episode II
The second day passed quickly and not particularly noticeable, and we think that we are not waiting for anything special today, but in the evening changed our impression about the present day and holiday in Bulgaria as a whole.
We have decided in the morning, in the evening we take in rent electric cycles on three-hour and will be riding them along the boardwalk. Everything was good, I'd say fine, up to a couple of time before we turned to where we did…
I am a student for a year in Bulgaria and some friends and I are planning to go hiking for two days to the seven lakes this week end.
Because we are off season now it is very difficult to find the right information.
We will leave from Blagoevgrad. Do you know how to get to the lift from Blagoevgrad ? Do we have to reserve a hut or make a phone call before coming over ? Is there a way from the Rila Monastery ?
Thanks for your help !
This time we went for the light vacation in Bulgaria, Sunny Beach.
In principle, from Bulgaria no one expected miracles and what that huge emotions, but to my surprise, I liked Bulgaria. This is a very beautiful country and there can be a great time in the company and with the family and children. It becomes clear after the first day.
Sami emotions derived from the travel began during landing because a hard landing, I had never experienced before. We have twice hit the chassis on the…
My flight gets in to Sofia airport at midnight. Does anyone know if the taxi booking office in the airport will still be open at that time?
Or can anyone recommend a transfer service that I could book in advance?
what is the best town to stay in to be able to do a day hike to the 7 lakes? We were going to base ourselves in Blagoevgrad but would it be better to be in Samokov or Dupnista or elsewhere?
I'm having a very difficult time finding a reliable route between Veliko Tarnovo and Bucharest. The bus options that I'm seeing online are showing well over 100 USD and I am not allowed to book.
Can anyone recommend a website that allows me to see actual times and costs and allows me to book? I don't mind train or mini-bus. Will be traveling one-way in late October.
Thank you, in advance.
we are on the black sea coast and planning our next legs. We will definitely visit Plovdiv and would like to do Melnik, we may also try and do some mountain area such as near Bankso. We are travelling by public transport.
Our next major destination is Athens towards the end of October. We have already visited Sofia and Skopje so would definitely like to visit Ohrid and if time Tirana and Berat.
Can we get from Melnik or Bankso to Ohrid without back tracking to Sofia and Skopje?
Is there an…
