As one of Europe’s up and coming, yet still relatively unexplored countries, Bulgaria is an ideal destination to book your next holiday accommodation. The main draw to Bulgaria for most tourists is the Black Sea coast, which has long sandy beaches, secluded bays and endless sunny skies. Many people rent long and short-term holiday villas here to enjoy the laid-back beach towns, temperate climate, and Mediterranean influenced cuisine. To the southwest of the country lie the stunning Rila and Pirin mountain ranges, where you can find some of Europe’s most affordable ski resorts. The Rila National Park offers trekkers lush, verdant mountain trails and a myriad of birds and wild animals for ardent wildlife spotters. Bulgaria is also a country rich in ancient culture. A mix of Slavic, Greek, Ottoman, and Celtic influences can be seen in the nine UNESCO World Heritage sites, and also in the profusion of archaeological ruins scattered across the country. The cosmopolitan capital city of Sofia has many museums where visitors can explore the fascinating relics of one of Europe’s oldest crossroads. Visit Bulgaria now before this little explored gem becomes the next big European hotspot.
