Bulgaria What to Pack

  • luggage

    Sofia What to Pack

    I would suggest you to carry little luggage because here you can find almost everything and for very cheap prices. The climate is temperate so it depandes on the season. The winter usually is very cold and the summer often very hot. There are plenty of drug-stores here so I believe you can find almost everything you'd need. A camera would be...

  • Adapters

    Many former 220V countries have converted or are in the process of converting to the EU standard of 230V. So did Bulgaria.Generally, this difference is inconsequential, as most appliances are built to tolerate current a certain percentage above or below the rated voltage. The plugs have two round pins as shouwn on the picture. The shape of the...

  • Packing List

    Don't forget to bring a swimming suite, and some sun protection. You don't need that big budget if you visit Bulgaria as you will find the prices very cheap compared to many other famous European holiday destinations. Me myself did only use about 60% of my planned budget!

  • Where the sun is shining

    Though the sun allmost always shines in Bulgaria it can be raining from time to time but it never lasts for a whole day. Keep this in mind when u pack and remember something warm and maybe even and umbrella.

  • Toiletpaper!!

    The bulgarians are not generous with their toiletpaper so remember to pack some of that and always have some on u when u are not at the hotel..........believe me it will come in handy.

  • Don't forget ....

    Bulgaria has many undeveloped or poor maintain roads in some of the many towns. I recommend you bring a good pair of boots for the hike or walk in the hills. Sneakers are best for that walk around town. Take alot of film. Film is moderatly priced in Bulgaria. Some places sell film in packs of 4 or 5 which are more economical Always carry with...

  • Bottled Water

    If you travel through Bulgaria at any time never forget your bottled water. Water in Bulgaria is of good & clean quality. Big bottles are best to buy. They are for about 1 leva (approx: .65 cents USD)

  • Packing for Bulgaria (2)

    You don’t have to pack everything! Everything you think you will need, and is something you think you only can buy in advance for your trip, that is, in your own country, is largely also available in Bulgaria for a relatively cheap price. The weather in summer is good, about some 30 degrees in towns, so that you don’t have to pack warm clothes. But...

  • Packing for Bulgaria (1)

    Of course you know what you have to pack for a country such as Bulgaria. You wont have to take more effort than for a trip to any other Western country. Yet found it very helpful that I had a flashlight packed; especially at some rural places where there was after midnight no light available along the roads that lead to my hostal. Another thing: I...

    As I wasn't sure if I would like the Bulgarian cuisine, I brought sachets of soup and hot chocolate with me just in case. This turned out to a good idea as the food at our hotel was awful. My diet for the week consisted of bread, pizza, hot chocolate, soup and vodka! I'm not sure how good or bad the food is elsewhere in Bulgaria - we were on a...

    If you go there even in summer, you should take warm clothes. The temperature in August is about 30-35c, but sometimes it rains or rather windy. But my experience tells me, that you won't be able to dress it up, because its really hot there. And it happens so rare, that you can forget about it. Electricity 220v~ You can spend your day on the...

  • Packing List

    Suitcase Thermal vest and leggings, ski jacket, trousers etc. Goggles, sunglasses, warm hat, gloves (two pairs in case one gets wet from too much snow) Take tea bags - theirs are weird apple tasting things. Take toilet roll as theirs is a bit thin. Take a small kettle if you can, none of the hotel rooms seems to have a kettle in them.

  • Packing List

    Avoid suitcases with an additional pocket on front - ours got ripped up badly at Bourgas airport. The roads can get very dusty in the summer, so be careful with your best shoes or they will get wrecked. Feminine hygiene products are very hard to find, as is a pharmacy - take stuff with you. APS film is hard to get, but 35mm should be no problem
