Bulgaria is definitely famous for its resorts, the outstanding sunny beaches, and fine sand. But our beautiful country is also known for its diversity, which is clearly seen in the numerous holiday opportunities it offers. Here is a detailed guide that will help you figure out just the right type of Bulgarian holiday that will suit your needs perfectly.

 

How to pick the right place for your holiday in Bulgaria

 

Transport connections to Bulgarian Black sea coast

First of all, we must discuss the most important subject and that is transportation. Every good holiday starts with a flawless trip. Every inconvenience during the travel sets up a bad tone for the entire holiday. So it is good to have a clear idea of the best way to reach your holiday destination.

 

Bulgarian Airports

 

There are two main airports on the Bulgarian Seaside – Varna, and Burgas. They are the preferred means of transportation for tourists that come to Bulgaria for their summer holiday. Varna is located in the northern part of the Bulgarian seacoast meanwhile Burgas is in the southern region of the coastline. The two cities’ international airports, Varna Airport, and Burgas Airport are the main hubs servicing the region. Another great means of transportation is the Trakia motorway; it connects the capital Sofia with the city of Burgas. It will take you around 3 and half hours to get to Burgas city, so Sofia airport is also a good choice for transportation.

 

North and South black sea coast

Varna and Burgas are the border points that divide the Bulgarian seacoast to a northern and southern part. The north black sea coast is predominant by more cliff and rocky shores but really picturesque that rise over the sea. It is important to note that it is always a few degrees colder in the north than in the southern parts.

Those who are interested in virgin beaches and preserved wildlife will probably enjoy the northern parts of the coast way more since there you can come across some beautiful secluded small beaches, breathtaking views from the numerous cliffs and rocks and real peace and serenity.
