Why travel to Bulgaria?

We have travelled around Bulgaria with guides and got lots of tips about the country and the beautiful coastline on the Black Sea. Bulgaria has 28 regions (oblasts) and the capital Sofia is its own region.

Bulgaria was very famous in the 80s when Swedes went on cheap holidays to 'Sunny Beach' on the Black Sea and partied. Today the country has much more to offer! You can still sunbathe and swim on beautiful sandy beaches, but also experience culture, history, wine, golf and much more. Below you will find lots of articles with travel tips.
