    I had a unique experience while shopping in Sofiya, my first ever till receipt combining both Cyrillic & Roman script. So often have I been frustrated by computer keyboards incapable of dealing with more than Roman script, but in Bulgaria, even the humble cash tills can achieve this feat. In general, local goods are itemised in Cyrillic, with...

  • Buying mountain equipment in Bulgaria

    Most sport shops in Bulgaria are rather cheap. Please pay attention that there may be no sport shops in some regions at all. A good example is Rodopi.

    any stalls or shops in the resorts in bulgaria tend to sell things for much dearer than in the main towns like varna, so when you go plan a trip to your nearest town at the start so you can see what the prices there are like compared to your resort, then plan another trip back near the end of your holiday to buy all your souviners and prezzies
