Several (about four) years ago there was a regular bus connection betwen Durankulak border checkpoint and Kavarna (via Shabla). Now I cannot see this bus at http://avtogari.info/
Is it true that this bus does not operate any more? Or maybe I am wrong?
I point out that I mean not the Durankulak village, but the Durankulak GKPP (border checkpoint) which is 5-6 km away.
We'll be in Sofia for a few days and are looking for a single day hike around the lakes and the Rila Monastery.
I can't seem to find a recommended route - just that a circular route of 3-5 hours is possible starting from rilski ezera. Can anyone please share a more detailed route? Preferably with a map?
We have two vehicles available so it's also possible for us to to plan a not-circular route, starting and finishing at different spots.
Thank you very much!
Always wanted to go to Bulgaria. And as much as I love to visit the worlds second-oldest continuously-operating porcelain factory, its gonna be a week or two of debauchery in Sunny Beach.

Hi, can anyone advise me the best way to travel overland from Bulgaria to Georgia (Batumi)? I'd rather not fly as I like visiting new places along the way but it seems that the ferries are no longer running and there won't be any trains in and out of Ankara... Many thanks to anyone who can help!
I'm looking at going to Borovets next month and have been looking at either joining an organised trip or heading out myself to walk or cycle a shorter tour.
However most trips are either single day or 7 to 8.
Are there any suggestions for a 3 or 4 day trip?
Thanks in advance
Does anyone have a recommendation for a company to deal with to hire a car in Sofia (for 4 days) to drive to Greece and back?
I'm looking for cheap and preferably one where I'm not going to be completely price gouged for crossing a border. I've dealt with http://www.eurorentacarbg.com/ before and they were perfect. 25 euros a day and didn't care that I crossed the border. Sadly though they have nothing available for the period I want it (which is next week). It's frustrating because I…
We are travelling to Bulgaria in July for ten days. I would really appreciate feed back on our plan!
Our flights take us into Bourgas, where we pick up our car rental, and stay for one night, then we are driving to Plovdiv.
We are then going to Devin for a wedding for two nights.
From Devin, we are considering trying to take in the 7 Rila Lakes or going straight to Sophia.
From Sophia, after one or two nights, we want to drive to Belogradchik and spend one night to see the fortress.
I will be crossing into Bulgaria from Niš, Serbia in 2 days. 5 days later I fly to Kiev for 4 days from Sofia and back again. I am thinking of going off to Macedonia for a bit then crossing back into Bulgaria and making my way east to the coast. So i will have 3 entrances in probably 2 - 3 weeks. Will this raise any eyebrows? I just want to make sure they wont think why is this guy going back and forward
