If you want to spend a holiday, watching sunbeams cherishing the vine leaves and tender sea playing with its waves, make a trip to Bulgaria. The entire coast is covered with affordable resorts, where the hotels, shopping centers and entertainment for any taste are waiting for tourists. Even the names of resorts (the Sunny Coast – the Golden Sands) prove that there is no better place for a holiday.
You won’t have to complain about the service level, because it has been enhanced to meet the European standards. Thereto add the traditional hospitality of the local people, no language divide (approximately 40% of the Bulgarians speak foreign languages) and don’t hesitate to purchase a tour to Bulgaria!
Options for every budget
Resorts with developed infrastructure don’t limit the range of choices for their guests. For those, who don’t intend to overspend, Varshava Hotel, located at the Golden Sands will be a great option. Of course, in terms of comfort it can be compared to the Soviet era hotel in Yalta, just without hot water lacking in the tap and equipment breaking down, and the staff greets hotel guests with smiles. You won’t regret about choosing bed and breakfast accommodation. After having a bite at the hotel in the morning, in the afternoon you will set on studying the menus of multiple restaurants, offering a glut of local dishes.
For holiday-makers with children, it’s worth paying attention to “all inclusive” offers to let the kids enjoy the children’s menu and have fun in the aqua park. 5 star hotels Sol Nessebar Palace and
Melia Grand Hermitage provide such an opportunity, the latter will surprise you with a pleasant feature – every room offers a sea view.
A big company of tourists can rent an apartment or a small house and at the same time save on meals. You may cook yourself or visit one of the multiple cafes, where you will have a square and delicious lunch for only 10 € (about 20 lev). Try small mutton cutlets, called “kebapcheta”, order “povech” (originally cooked meat with vegetables), add thereto a salad with tomatoes, cucumbers and feta cheese. But don’t forget that the kind hosts serve the portions of amazing size! You have to work hard to cope with them.
How to spend your leisure time?
Some hotels possess their own private beaches, but this is an exception. In most cases, you have to go to the public beaches, so put 8-10 levs aside to rent sunbeds and umbrellas.
When you are tired of sunbathing, take a boat trip along the coast. On the yacht you will be offered a memorable picnic and an exciting “Pirate Party” – including riding the waves, a play naval battle and of course grappling with the slain enemy (about 80 levs, 50% discount for children).
There is no reason to limit yourself to the coast. Discover the many faces of Bulgaria on the excursion in Kazanlak, where you will be presented a chaplet of roses, visit Shipka-Buzludzha park, see the tomb of Thracian kings.
Nature lovers cannot avoid paying attention to Balchik, which the Botanic Garden is located, which includes a unique collection of cacti (over 250 species). Once, the residence of the Romanian queen was here, so they definitely will show her house and tell you the romantic legend.
You will spend unforgettable days visiting Bulgaria and at the same time will avoid unnecessary expenditures. Having spent a holiday in this country, you will certainly want to come back again.
