Bulgaria is the Thracians – great warriors and horsemen that were feared and outsiders respected them. It is also the country of accomplished artists and farmers who grew wealthy from trading jewelry, copper and gold. Their fierce weaponry is in archaeological museums around the country. Anyone who likes to see it, can do it there. Many tombs, discovered mainly in central Bulgaria – the region of Kazanlak and Shipka, reveal the Thracians’ rituals, their beliefs. A gold mask and a bronze head of a Thracian King have been found there.
Places to see and things to do on Bulgaria vacations are waiting you to discover them. These are Rila Mountain that gave home to the Rila Monastery, the magnificent holy cloister, unity of spirituality, culture and nature. Then Rupite – a source of energy.

Not until the 1960’s was the Black Sea coastline of Bulgaria developed for mass tourism. At first, mainly the officials of the Communist party benefitted from the few resorts. Soon after that new and sophisticated resorts began to appear quickly attracting tourists from all over the world.

In addition to it, the beautiful nature and moderate and pleasant climate make it preferable for any taste. In comparison, Sofia, the capital of Bulgaria where you can enjoy Sofia daily city tours, is offering things to see and do at any season.

Coastal Bulgaria Holidays – the two ‘faces’ of your coastal Bulgaria holidays
Divided into two parts – Northern and Southern part, due to the Balkan Mountains that cross the country, the Black Sea coastline has two ‘faces’. One of the ‘faces’ is rough – this is the northern coast. Parts of it feature rocky highlands. While the other ‘face’ is softer with its wide sandy beaches. Whichever face you choose for your holidays in Bulgaria, you won’t regret. What is more, you can combine coastal holiday with adventure Balkan tours. Not far from the seaside, in the countryside, are the alluring mountains.
