From sandy Black Sea beaches to bustling historic cities, Bulgaria offers relaxation, culture and adventure in equal measure. Balchik Palace and Botanical Gardens effortlessly blend Gothic and Islamic architecture and are ringed by a carefully manicured maze that visitors can leisurely meander through. The ancient city of Plovdiv offers an Old Town characterised by quaint streets cobbled with original Roman stones. Enjoy a night of entertainment in truly remarkable surroundings at the Roman amphitheatre that boasts excellent views of the downtown area and hosts everything from rock concerts to plays. The picturesque port city of Varna is home to Bulgaria’s oldest and largest public park. Known as Sea Garden, it contains the Natural Science Museum and the country’s only Dolphinarium and Aquarium. Nearby is perhaps Bulgaria’s most famous beach – Golden Sands is as idyllic as the name suggests, with sparkling deep blue waters lapping against the vast stretching shores.
