What to pack for Bulgaria
Bulgarian is the official language and they use the Cyrillic alphabet, so it will be useful to learn a few phrases, particularly if you’re travelling outside of the major cities.
The official currency of Bulgaria is the Bulgarian lev, and you’ll need to bring some cash for smaller restaurants, markets and outside cities.
From hiking the spectacular mountains to walking the cobbled laneways, you’ll need a sturdy pair of shoes for your Bulgaria trip.
In Bulgaria, the power plugs and sockets are of type F, with standard European 2-pin plugs. The standard voltage is 230 V and the standard frequency is 50 Hz.
The weather can be unpredictable with freezing winters, rainy springs and a scorching Bulgarian summer. It’s best to bring versatile clothing and layers to cover your knees and elbows when visiting monasteries.
