 Travel Bloggers Talk about Bulgaria

Travel bloggers from all around the world share their experience after visiting Bulgaria. Here you will find some of their most inspiring quotes and thoughts about Bulgaria and the Balkans.

I freakin’ love Bulgaria. As I think back over my three weeks in the country, I struggle to remember any negative experiences at all. My only regret is that I couldn’t stay longer and explore.

“Bulgaria has a little bit of everything for everyone: from its lush mountain scenery in the north and south, to beautiful sandy beaches on the famed Black Sea coast, and some of the oldest history in Europe with archaeological sites dating back to as early as 4900 BC.”

“Bulgaria is a classic European nation, with visual and cultural elements derived from a multitude of empires, with history spanning back longer than almost any other nation in Europe. Sofia is a vibrant and modern European capital city. There’s a handful of UNESCO-listed towns nestled in between rolling mountains, with much of Bulgaria’s stunning nature remaining pure and pristine.”

“In a land trampled by invaders and then occupied by the Soviets, free Bulgaria shines now as a place with a strong bond to the fertile land and majestic mountains.”

“You see parks and monuments are all over the world, but it’s the local people – in this case the friendly people of Sofia – that make our experience of travel a life long lesson of human understanding.”

“But the reason why I enjoyed Veliko Tarnovo so much wasn’t the history, incredible views or beautiful architecture. It was the really decent street art scene, something I’d never have thought of there!”

“Bulgaria is a country that’s incredibly rewarding to travel through.”

“The country itself is a beautiful country. We fell in love with the mountains and forests and rivers – so much water and so much green. It is a pity that we can’t take this home with us!” Ellis Shuman

“So other than all that, and other than driving on the right side of the road, it was relatively easy. I’d still highly recommend a road trip around Bulgaria. The scenery was so absolutely riveting that it would seem a crime to me just to take a bus.”

In addition, the fact that the Bulgarian people are extremely warm and welcoming towards foreigners just increases its attractiveness as a travel destination (speaking of attractiveness, Bulgarians have to be some of the most attractive people on the planet!)

Our favorite part was definitely Veliko Tarnovo. It is a beautiful town and incredibly pleasant to walk around.

“Here we have breathtaking beaches, high and unbelievably beautiful mountains, totally stunning cultural and historical destinations, including 9 UNESCO sites. You should also know that the country is very youngster-friendly destination.” –

“Even though value and affordability are a huge plus for Bulgaria, its charm lays with the rich cultural and historical heritage, gorgeous nature, delicious cuisine and warm Bulgarian hospitality.”

“Bulgaria is a strikingly beautiful country and is best explored via road.”

“The most amazing place on Earth” –

“Sofia is the most budget friendly EU capital and can easily be done on under $25/day. It ranks in the top 4 of the most impressive, yet affordable cities in Europe.”

Still unknown to many foreign visitors, Bulgaria is actually a green country with four mild, but well discernable seasons and very variable terrain. High mountains, deep gorges, untouched forests, rivers, broad plains, numerous cliffs as well as the sea coast are situated in a relatively small territory making the country diverse and interesting.”

“If you’re looking for a country with absolutely everything then Bulgaria should be on your bucket list. It’s oozing with tradition, coastline and ancient cities and to add to its appeal it’s incredibly cheap making it a perfect destination for anyone on a budget.”

“I had arrived with extremely low expectations and left eager to explore more of the country. We didn’t give ourselves enough time and subsequently were only able to scratch the surface. Bulgaria was a wonderful surprise and the perfect way to finish off our time in Eastern Europe.”

“Do keep Sofia and Plovdiv in mind if you are looking for something different, especially in an Eastern European country. Bulgaria will surprise and enchant you in many ways.”

“The Rila Mountains are an inspiration and delight to the Bulgarians, who make up the vast majority of each year’s half-million visitors to the park. It is said that every Bulgarian (there are 8 million) visits the Rila Mountains at least twice in his or her lifetime.” by Gregory Dicum

“Ruse, along with the rest of Bulgaria offers plenty of history, natural wonders and hidden surprises.” –

“The Black sea Coast of Bulgaria has been a budget holiday favorite for decades. Along this stretch of coast is a good cross section of Europe with styling urban cities, cheapo package holiday resorts, old fishing villages and ancient ruins.”
