Misty mountains, sandy shores and history-filled cities bustling with life make Bulgaria a holiday destination for everyone. The snow-capped peaks of the Balkan and Rhodope mountain ranges are a ski lovers’ paradise, with the popular Bansko, Bovorets and Pamporovo-Mechi Chal resorts offering powdery slopes all year round. Ski all the way down to the valleys and you’ll find picturesque little villages made of wood and stone, not far from contrasting big cities littered with grandiose landmarks and historical monuments that date back to the Roman Empire.
Sofia, the capital, offers everything from majestic churches and lush public parks to pavement cafés, art galleries and museums, while Plovdiv’s cobbled streets lead to fortress ruins, ancient amphitheatres and crumbling mansions turned nightclubs, that thrill and fascinate tourists and locals alike.
