It may not be the largest of the Baltic countries, but what it lacks in size it more than makes up for in personality and interest. From sweeping national parks filled with wildlife to sophisticated cities filled with culture and fabulous cuisine, Bulgarian package holidays put together the best that this charming country has to offer. From the crowd-free, laid-back town of Sozopol to the glorious Rose Valley in Kazanlak, the superb powder snow of Bansko ski resort or the ancient history of Rousse, there’s something for everyone in Bulgaria.

The country’s cuisine is unique too, with strong Turkish and Greek influences that blend beautifully with the country’s traditional dairy products and rich stews.

Bulgaria Experiences

  • For family holidays, the beach resorts of the Black Sea Coast region offer sunshine, sandy shores, and child-friendly attractions, as well as excellent accommodation options. Stay in the busy resort of Burgas, or seek out the more relaxed atmosphere of smaller resorts such as the pretty Pomorie, or the exclusive Primorsko.
  • Go hiking in the fabulous Balkan Mountains and climb the towering Mount Musala, or explore the rolling pastures and green slopes of the Rhodope Mountains in the south, where time seems to have slowed to a crawl, and the traditional Bulgarian way of life can still be seen.
  • Explore the shops and markets of Sophia, from the luxury boutiques of Vitosha Boulevard to the huge open-air market of Zhenski Pazar, packed with bargains. For handmade crafts, trinkets from the Communist era and general bric-a-brac, check out the Malashevtsi flea market.
