What to see and do

From the beach resorts along the Black Sea Coast to the mountain resorts there is a wide range of things to see and do in Bulgaria. For those who love water sports there is plenty to do including hiring a jet ski, banana boat rides and even scuba diving. Bulgaria is especially proud of its rich history and its traditions and you can enjoy all of this and more on one of our many fascinating excursions. While visiting this beautiful country do try and visit the towns of Nessebar, Sozopol, Bourgas and Varna where you'll get to experience the real Bulgaria.

Water parks

While on holiday in Bulgaria you can visit one of the water parks in the beach resorts. There's two in Sunny Beach/Nessebar and one in Albena, our local representatives will be very happy to arrange your visit there.

Food and drink

Because of its geographical position and diverse history, Bulgarian cuisine is a mixture of the Slavonic, Greek and Turkish cuisines. We do recommend you try one of these local dishes as Bulgarian food is absolutely delicious.

• Shopska salad (diced tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers and parsley topped with grated white cheese).
• Tarator (a cold soup of chopped cucumber, walnuts and yogurt) perfect on a hot summer's day.
• Bulgarian white cheese baked with eggs and tomatoes is another favorite.
• Kebapche (minced meat rolled into a sausage and grilled)
• Kavarma (individual casseroles of pork or veal, onions and mushrooms)
• Shishkebab, stuffed vine or cabbage leaves, and moussaka.


Yogurt tastes better in Bulgaria too - its country of origin. Bulgaria is home to some excellent locally produced wines and spirits, and nothing can beat a cold Bulgarian beer while relaxing around the pool or in one of the many friendly bars and restaurants.

Eating out in Bulgaria is very popular and affordable. It is widely known that food and drink is a lot cheaper than many other holiday resorts across Europe. Just another example of what great value for money our holidays to Bulgaria can be.

Shopping

Bulgaria is great place for cheap designer clothes, handbags. Traditional handicrafts such as handmade pottery, jewelery, lace and knitwear can be found in local markets and shops.
