Here it is, this contrast and magnificent Bulgaria!

This article will be as useful as possible for you if you are going on holiday to Bulgaria or can’t decide whether to go there or not.
Let’s start with the fact that it is pleasant for tourists in Bulgaria to be the fact that coming here not by package (without a reserved hotel) you can easily stay in any free hotel or room.
Many before the trip to Bulgaria are afraid to see a kind of relic of the past, almost the USSR. But in fact, the country in recent years has taken a very far step forward. She entered the European Union, decent roads were built here, hotels and shopping centers were completely modernized. The only thing that remains to this day from the USSR is the quality of the products. But this is rather a plus than a minus.
In Bulgaria, even at the most expensive resort, there are many places that, to put it mildly, do not look very good. Exactly the opposite!
The farther from the sea and popular tourist routes you are, the more such places you will meet.
At the same time, by the sea, many resorts in Bulgaria easily compete with the world’s leading resorts.
The level of service in Bulgaria is high! Even in the cheapest hotel the level of service is quite sufficient and exceeds that in some other countries.
Just a little talk about the features of this country.
In Bulgaria, the national currency is Leva. But the import and export of Bulgarian currency from the country is prohibited by law. In exchange offices or banks within the country, you can easily exchange dollars, euro, rubles, hryvnias and many other currencies for levs.
The only oddity – the Bulgarians nod their disagreement, but agree, shaking his head from side to side.
The national instrument of Bulgaria is the guide (Bulgarian bagpipe). You can easily listen to it, for example, in the evening, at the entrance to Old Nessebar.
Bulgaria is famous for its diverse resorts. There are in the country as well-promoted, and very young, but rapidly conquering their potential tourists small picturesque villages. And also they go to Bulgaria to improve their health, to relax both body and soul. The seaside resorts of the country attract not only young, but also more mature vacationers. And now, the main places where you should visit, arriving in Bulgaria.
Nessebar is the oldest city in Europe. Very beautiful, ancient and romantic city, which is entirely under the protection of UNESCO. Convenient city in terms of excursions. Along the coast and at the reception of any hotel in Nessebar, you can choose any trip you like and book it. There is no bus station in the city itself, but at each stop there is a timetable of routes, which you can navigate. Then it remains to just come at the appointed time and wait for the bus (they are not late).
The city has a huge number of restaurants, cafes, fast food restaurants. The prices in establishments are mostly high, especially for tourist routes. Separately, it is worth noting furry. These are the Bulgarian restaurants that serve delicious national food.
The beauty of the narrow streets with old wooden houses, the ancient churches and the very realization that a part of Nessebar is now under water attracts many tourists to their open spaces.
The city has several clean beaches. One of the most enjoyable is the beach behind the stones. You can always find free space here, but it is not equipped.
Shopping in Nessebar is not the most successful idea. Here they sell mainly Turkish products, and the quality of some products leaves much to be desired. Although there are many souvenir shops, prices in them are not cheap.
The next item will be Pomorie – a source of healing power and health.
Pomorie – is a famous sea and spa resort. The city has low affordable prices for tourists. And this is one of the best Bulgarian resorts.
The town is surprisingly cozy, with the old part located on the peninsula. Picturesque landscapes, an ancient monastery, wild beaches, a lake-reserve, endless festivals, excellent shopping at really low prices – all this awaits you in Pomorie.
In addition, the city produces good cognacs and wines, and also produces sea salt. Pomorie is more suitable for a quiet family holiday and recreation with children, because the entrance to the sea is smooth, and the water is warm and calm. Lovers of fun most likely here will be boring, but at the same time, you can always get to the noisier Sunny Beach, where a huge number of nightlife.
There is a bus station in Pomorie (in the old part). From it you can reach many cities of the country.
The beach on the spit near Pomorie will not be able to leave you indifferent either.
Do not forget about Burgas – one of the largest cities in Bulgaria.
Burgas is a rather attractive and inexpensive resort. Here is a large seaport, international airport, railway and bus stations.
In Bourgas there are beautiful clean beaches, a large seaside park (about 7 km) with sandy figures, an opera house and several museums. All this attracts many tourists to the city every year. True, the prices there are very big, but the choice is very good.
If you have the means, then you can enjoy Sunny Beach – the most expensive resort in Bulgaria. This is one of the most popular and famous tourist complexes in the country. City of ceaseless discos, built up with rows of countless hotels. Everything is expensive here. Prices in shops, restaurants, beaches, and taxis are several times higher than in Pomorie. And while the resort is literally packed with people. The beaches are clean, but you can often see algae on the shore (and in the evening they are thrown back into the water).
The resort has been awarded the Blue Flag for the environmental benefits of water and sand.
There is a bus station in Sunny Beach. In the city, you can easily order many excursions.
There is also a city-botanical garden – Balchik. The popularity of Balchik gives fabulously beautiful botanical garden with the summer residence of the Romanian queen in it. This is one of the main attractions of all of Bulgaria, especially its seaside region. The city is located in the north of the country and is the third largest seaport.
The main disadvantage is that it is impossible to get from Balchik directly to the same Nessebar or Burgas. Be sure to change in Varna.
How to attract these resort beaches !!
Golden Sands is a hot Bulgarian resort, one of the largest resorts in the country. Prices here are slightly lower than in Sunny Beach, but the weather is usually very hot. The sun bakes is simply unbelievable, because the mountains do not allow fresh air to get through, therefore there is often a stuffiness here.
Great for young people and nightlife lovers. This resort will not let you get bored – music and fun do not stop all day. But there is one drawback here – the descent to the beach and the entrance to the sea are not as gentle as in Sunny Beach or Nessebar due to the mountainous terrain.
Of course, back in Bulgaria, you will find a cultural and historical heritage – the city of Varna, which is also a popular resort. This is a huge, lively city with lots of parks, shops and squares. It’s impossible to say that everything is very cheap here, but you can’t call it particularly high prices either.
Varna is an important economic and cultural center with its own airport and established ferry service. It is the largest port city in Bulgaria. There is a large bus station, from which you can go in any direction – both in Bulgaria itself and in other countries of the world.
