A Country of Superb Variations
Sleeping under canvas, listening to early morning birdsong and breathing fresh country air can be a great adventure, and with such varied landscapes to explore, a camping holiday in Bulgaria is an inexpensive and often rewarding experience. However, camping in Bulgaria is not as popular as it once was, and many of the older camping grounds have been neglected and facilities are poor, while many have closed altogether. In recent years there has been some renewed interest, and today there are some newer and very attractive spots to pitch your tent around Bulgaria, either along the coast or in the mountains. These are still few and far between, but are normally well cared for, where you can pitch your tent for around 5 Euros a night, sometimes with onsite electricity and hot showers included, or at a small extra charge. Most camping sites in Bulgaria are in more remote rural areas, and are usually in the grounds of guesthouses or holiday cottages, and some also offer space for caravans for around 9 Euros a night. You will need to bring your own tent and provisions, although there’s usually a nearby village where you can pick up basic essentials. Ideally, if you intend setting out on a camping holiday in Bulgaria, you will need your own transport. In Bulgaria, camping outside recognised campsites is prohibited.
