Bulgaria Things to Do

  • Aleksander Nevski Cathedral

    Sofia Things to Do

    Well worth a visit to this especially when celebrated liturgy. We were there the day of the Holy Spirit and the experience was unique. From a hundred tourists who come and go watching with astonishment everything made by the other scores of faithful who pray with devout. Prohibited the photographing, but many (even me) sneak gouged a photo....

    4 out of 5 stars

    Varna Things to Do

    Varna has so many hidden secrets tucked away in odd niches and the Roman Baths are one such. I had no idea what street they were on until coming across the freebie "Happy" map on my last visit and they certainly aren't signposted (that I noticed). At first sight I presumed it to be some sort of bio-dome but it turned out that what I thought was a...

  • Sea Park - Morska Gradina

    Burgas Things to Do

    Morska Gradina (Sea Park) is a beautiful green haven that runs behind the beach area. It's very nice to walk along here or take a seat in the shade. There are water fountains to watch and little places to have some food or a drink.

    Plovdiv Things to Do

    The Old Town of Plovdiv is the main reason I wanted to visit this city. It’s an area full of cobbled streets that go up on a steep hill and we felt like we walked on an open air museum, it’s actually a city within the modern city. We started from Saborna street and then we got lost on the side streets, we had a small map but we didn’t really...

    Koprivshtitsa Things to Do

    We spent two nights in Koprivshtitsa staying at this humble family little Guesthouse which ranks first on the list of hotels in the village. We did not know what to expect at first but finally it proved to be a good choice. The lack of English had no impact at all, and we loved every minute out here. More than 380 of Koprivshtitsa's houses date...

  • NDK - National Palace of Culture

    Sofia Things to Do

    I cant remember why we decided from the city center down to NDK, the truth is that it was very cold that morning, there was still snow on the pavements but it was nice to see the city in action, locals going to work and we had the chance to check some small stores on the way etc When we arrived at NDK (national palace of culture) we realized that...

    Sunny Beach Things to Do

    We spent a very pleasant day traveling the 5-6 miles or so along the river. These boats are beautifully decorated motor boats that gently flow with the tide toward the mouth of the Montreal the sights and sounds are well worth checking out it's good value for money as I'm sure we saw a return trip cost was silly money. The trip takes about an hour...

  • Beach

    Burgas Things to Do

    Bourgas definitely isn't in the same league regarding beaches as its close neighbours of Sozopol, Nessebar, Sunny Beach and etc. but it does have quite a reasonable stretch of sand in front of the Sea Gardens. The dark-coloured sand looks as if it is dirty but in fact the discolouration is merely due to naturally-occurring minerals and is actually...

    Plovdiv Things to Do

    The Roman ruins in Plovdiv were the first I saw in my life in far 1984. The Ancient theatre (Antichen teatur) is probably the best-known monument from antiquity in Bulgaria.

    3.5 out of 5 stars

    Sofia Things to Do

    I believe that this remnant of the Ottoman rule of Bulgaria is the only functioning mosque in Sofia. It dates from the 15th Century and did seem to attract many worshippers. I was planning to visit, it was a Friday and as i made my way towards the building, I heard the call to prayer. My visit will have to take place during my next trip to...

  • Sea Garden - Morska Gradina

    4.5 out of 5 stars

    Varna Things to Do

    It may be a bit of a cliche to say that "the best things in life are free" but it is, in my personal experience, quite often the case. Here in Varna one of my favourite places is the magnificent Sea Garden which sprawls northward from the city centre for several kilometres following the Black Sea coast. The Sea Garden (sometimes referred to as...

    Plovdiv Things to Do

    This is not a real tip for Plovdiv since Bachkovo is some 30km south of town but still close enough to be an easy excursion for half a day. The monastery was founded in 1083. It had its heyday during the Second Bulgarian Empire 1185 - 1396 but was ransacke

    One of the most touristic spots in Burgas, the fountain at Troykata Square. Behind it you can see another remnant of Socialism, the typical monument in almost every town. The last picture shows how the square looked before the fountain was built. We have a joke that whenever now gardens, parks, fountains and playgrounds appear, that means that...

    Sveta Nedelya is an eastern orthodox cathedral. Nedelya means Sunday , so the name must be from Saint Sunday, a christian martyr of the 3rd Century, but some others claim that it has to do with the greek word kiriaki (Sunday in greek), the day of the lord, maybe that’s why the church was called Sveti Kral, Holy King in the late 19th century) It’s...
