Bulgaria: City Breaks
A Country of Superb Variations
With an increasing number of airlines, including budget airlines, connecting Bulgaria with the rest of the world, the Bulgarian capital, Sofia, is becoming an easy and attractive city break destination for international travellers. This vibrant, modern city has so much to offer, and luckily, it’s also a fairly compact city, so even if you only have a few days to spare for your city break in Bulgaria, you can still experience the city’s main sights and attractions. You’ll find the country’s finest restaurants and best nightlife here, and a wide range of accommodation to suit all pockets, from backpacker hostels up to the swankiest five-star hotels. Sofia boasts a number of excellent museums and art galleries, theatres, beautifully decorated Orthodox churches, huge green parks and countless shops and lively local markets where you can browse the stalls for some interesting souvenirs to take home. With new international air links developing, other city breaks in Bulgaria worth considering include Varna and Burgas, on the Black Sea coast, although outside summer you will need to take a connecting flight in Sofia. Both cities have some of Bulgaria’s best beaches on their doorsteps, while Varna has the country’s most interesting Archaeological Museum and some impressive Roman remains.
