About Bulgaria

Welcome to the surprising and totally wonderful country of Bulgaria, where the superb climate offers not only warm summers providing plenty of sunshine days per year, but also plenty of snow on the spectacular mountains for winter sports enthusiasts to enjoy in winter.

Situated in south-eastern Europe, Bulgaria occupies the north-eastern part of the Balkan Peninsula. The country's total territory is 111,000 sq. km. It has a 378 km borderline with the Black Sea to the east. Bulgaria also neighbours Macedonia and Serbia to the west, Romania to the north and Greece and Turkey to the south.

The country offers a mixture of quiet rural scenery and villages that have preserved their unique spirit of old times, and modern cities pulsating with the rhythm of growing business activity and ever changing fashions.

Bulgaria is very rich in ancient monuments and artefacts from different epochs in its 1300 year old history and beyond. Bulgaria has 9 UNESCO World Culture Heritage sites including numerous monasteries, churches and mosques, some having hundreds of years of history, presenting a compelling attraction to every tourist.

Regardless of your mood and interests, you will always find something intriguing and fascinating in Bulgaria.

Mineral Spas

Bulgaria is famous for its many natural hot mineral water springs and this presents excellent opportunities for health tourism. It has some 500 deposits of mineral waters with over 1,600 water sources, localised mainly at the mountain foothills. The spa resorts of national significance are Bankya, Velingrad, Sandanski, the mineral baths of Stara Zagora, Narechen, Sliven and Haskovo, as well as Kyustendil, Varshets, Pavel Banya, Hissarya, Merichleri, Momin Prohod, and Kostenets.

Black Sea Coast

For travellers who want to experience the beauty of a European beach resort without paying outrageous prices, there's nothing like the Black Sea coast of Bulgaria. Much of the coast is covered by long beaches with fine white sand. The sea itself is non-tidal, less salty and warmer than the Mediterranean.

The main seaside resorts are Sunny Beach, Golden Sands, Albena and St. Constantine. Two of the most popular coastal towns are Sozopol, an artistic community famous for Its folk festivals and art galleries, and the ancient port town of Nessebar, with dozens of Byzantine churches and unique 19th-century houses.

Varna and Burgas are the largest airport cities on the Black Sea coast. Other popular towns (from north to south) are Kavarna, Balchik, Obzor, St. Vlas, Ravda, Pomorie, Primorsko, Kiten, Tzarevo, Ahtopol and Sinemoretz.

Mountains

The Bulgarian mountains which occupy half of the country's territory, are easily accessible, and are a prime destination for both winter and summer tourist activities, including skiing, hiking, fishing, and canoeing.

The major mountain ranges are Rila, Pirin, Rhodope and Stara Planina. Mussala peak in the Rila mountain range is the highest point on the Balkan Peninsula.

With so much to offer, it is easy to understand why the tourism and property sectors continue to flourish and strengthen the ever improving Bulgarian economy.

Economy and Politics

Bulgaria is a parliamentary republic. After the fall of communism in 1989 the country has taken the road to democratic reforms and has achieved significant progress in recent years. It has a sustained GDP growth of 4.8%, a stable political system and highly trained workforce. The Bulgarian currency, the Lev, does not fluctuate as it has been pegged to the Euro since its introduction. Bulgaria is a member of NATO since 2004 and joined European Union in 2007.
