"Bulgaria is always a welcome surprise for our guests, as they discover one of Europe's oldest countries and some of the region's most stunning natural wonders."
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.
From hiking the spectacular mountains to walking the cobbled laneways, you’ll need a sturdy pair of shoes for your Bulgaria trip.
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.
The official currency of Bulgaria is the Bulgarian lev, and you’ll need to bring some cash for smaller restaurants, markets and outside cities.
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.
Depending on your nationality, you'll need a valid passport and may also need visas to enter. Please check this well in advance of your trip departure date here. Some countries also require passports to have 3-6 months left on them before the given expiry date, so be sure to double check this before booking your travels.
