With increased capacity out of East Midlands and Newcastle this Winter, more guests can take advantage of Balkan Holidays’ ‘City and Ski’ option.
Those flying home to Bristol, East Midlands, Manchester and Newcastle can spend their final day in the city of Sofia, Bulgaria.
Sofia is Bulgaria’s bustling, cosmopolitan capital and a compact and characterful place. It is young, lively and appealing, with numerous bars and cafes. Churches, treasure-filled museums, art galleries and leafy parks could keep visitors busy for a week. Once checked out of their ski resort, Balkan Holidays guests will be driven the couple of hours by coach to Sofia, and a guide will offer an escorted tour.
There’s free time to do some last-minute shopping, before the coach returns, guests are reunited with their luggage and the return flight home takes off.
Top tips for a short time in Sofia are:
• A coffee at one of the cafes in and around the City Garden
• Royal Palace for the Bulgarian folk art inside
• Aleksander Nevski Memorial Church with the Aleksander Nevski Crypt to see the impressive Museum of Icons.
• A traditional Bulgarian meal
The ‘Sofia See-Off Tour’ is booked and paid for in resort, from £9 per child and from £12.50 per adult. The excursion departs 9am (Bansko) and 10.15am (Borovets) and is not available from the resort of Pamporovo.
Ski holiday packages with Balkan Holidays are available from £232 per person, with a 40% saving, departing 4th January 2019, and including return flights, transfers, 7 nights’ self-catering accommodation at the 3* Aparthotel Winslow Infinity and services of Balkan Holidays’ representatives.
Head of Marketing Louise Newton said, ‘We are delighted to offer the chance to soak up some Bulgarian history and culture after a week on the slopes, and expect this to be an ever-more popular optional extra this Winter’.
