We're off to Bulgaria in July and would like to include 5 days + chilling on the Black Sea Coast, avoiding the big resorts/jet skis, etc. Considering Tsarevo, but it's hard to find out if the beach there is good (nothing is said about it in the LP guide). Sinemorets looks good, but apparently there is only one bus per day from Burgas. Does anyone know what time it leaves? And when the bus leaves Sinemorets going to Burgas? Will help us to see if this is a possibility! Any up to date information…

Got great airfare to Sofia in early June, leaving ( also from Sofia) about 3 weeks later. Now need to plan trip to Bulgaria and some surrounds Primarily interested in culture, food, music and archeology--festivals and events a definite plus.

I am a fit senior woman. Appreciate travel advice about traveling independently using public transportation ( I am not comfortable driving in foreign country) and/or recommendations of reasonably priced tours.

Hi All,
We are arriving in Sofia this Saturday and will be travelling in Bulgaria for 2 weeks. I'm very interested in architecture and food. Not so big on spending time on a beach but happy to soak in the ambiance of seaside towns and visit markets. Any help or suggestions on an itinerary would be much appreciated. We read somewhere that hiring a car is essential...is this true? or can we get to most places by public transport?
I'm very excited about discovering this for the moment undiscovered…

Folks,
I'm heading out to Romania and Bulgaria (mainly the Black Sea coast, always wanted to see it) for about 10 days in early June.

I'm not looking for a big party scene, just nice towns and fishing villages, laid back, nice beaches. I was thinking about:

Train from Bucharest to Constanta
Constanta to Balchik
Balchik to Vanra
Varna to Nessebar
Nessebar to Burgas
Burgas to Sozopol
Sozopol to Sofia (via Burgas I guess)

Can anyone advise if this is all possible and whether regular buses would…

Anyone know what the bus options are on this route?

Is there anything direct? Or only via Sofia? There doesn't seem to be any major roads south of Plovdiv......

Thanks Luc

Hi LP thorn tree'ers,

We are a couple who is planning our visit to Bulgaria this May, but presumably we would only have one week for our vocation. We will fly in and out between New York City and Sofia. We definitely want to be around Sofia (including Rila Monastery) for couple days, and maybe Plovdiv, Burgas or Kazanlak? We know our time does not allow us to see a lot like some other traveller here, however, does someone here could input their opinion on the options available to us? Any input…

Any input welcome.

I'm an 18 year old male, from Ireland and hope to spend about a month this July traveling solo in eastern Europe. I was thinking of stopping in Bulgaria for a few days because it looks amazing and I've heard it has a good party scene which is kind of what I'm looking for! Ive also heard it's relatively cheap which suits as I'm on a budget of about €50-€70 a day (preferably 50 so i can stay longer haha).

I'm looking for recommendations on which cities ti stop off at or even specific hostels. I'm…
