Bulgaria: Vacation Tips
The vast majority of people who go to Bulgaria go to seaside resorts to relax. The rest of the tourists go on sightseeing tours and mountain hiking. But let's see where you can go on a summer vacation to the sea in Bulgaria.
In the past, Czechs used to come here very often, then their interest declined, but today Bulgaria is once again one of the most popular destinations. And no wonder Bulgaria is a beautiful country. In most cases, the clear sea, landscaped beaches, staff of hotels and restaurants speak English, sometimes even Czech, the offer of trips around the area is still growing for tourists and tourists can not complain about cultural activities. In addition, travel agencies sell summer tours practically all year round and sometimes very conveniently. In Bulgaria you pay in Bulgarian levs, but in seaside resorts you can also pay in euros.
The most common destinations for summer holidays are Varna, Balchik, Nessebar, Albena, Burgas, Sozopol or Primorsko. In general, older couples and seniors tend to go on holiday to Varna, as there are many hotels with spas, massages and relaxation programs designed more for older people. The cultural program is also adapted here and classical music concerts, brass bands or theater performances are often held here. The staff of many hotels speak Czech at a basic level, so it is not a problem to speak.
Nessebar, Sozopol or Burgas are more recommended for families with children. The beaches here are sandy, always tidy and tidy in the morning. On some beaches, various slides and bouncy castles are available for children. In larger hotels, they offer an animation program, where temporary workers will take care of the children during the day and in the evening, and you will have time to relax and unwind. Very often there are many events for children or parties for young people.
Sunny Beach is ideal for young people, where there is a party and fun almost every night. There is even a hotel that is designed mainly for Czech and Slovak clients - the Jeravi Hotel, where either Czechs or Bulgarians who learn Czech work.
During your summer vacation, however, you do not have to stay only on the beach or in the hotel complex. Your delegate will certainly offer you a wide range of day trips, or you can go somewhere alone. Picnics and boat trips are such a classic, but much more interesting are trips to the town of Veliko Tarnovo, which is the former seat of the Bulgarian monarch, Old Nessebar, Balchik or the historic center of Varna. If you don't mind longer trips, I recommend Kazanlak, which is known mainly for growing roses, or Stará Zagora or Plovdiv.
