Excursions in Bulgaria – one of the main ways to diversify the beach or ski holidays in this sunny country. Of course, there are much more opportunities for exploring the country, its national colors, natural sights, architectural monuments and rich history in the summer. Being at any of the major resorts, Golden Sands or Sunny Beach, you can visit all the interesting places from a tourist point of view, go fishing on a yacht, go to a jeep safari or a pirate party, or even play paintball. But the winter in recent years is not far behind, offering its guests a lot of fascinating and active excursions in Bulgaria – from visiting holy places to extreme safari on quad bikes in the mountains.
Some of the excursions from the coast of Bulgaria, for example, to Sofia and the Rila Monastery with a stop in Pleven and Plovdiv, stretch for two days. Despite the fact that experienced guides still tear off the pale from the Russian winter tourists from the fertile Black Sea – believe me, they are worth it.
Aladzha Monastery – located 15 km from the city of Varna. From the 4th century, Christian hermits lived in this area in caves carved into limestone cliffs. As a rocky monastery the monastery finally took shape in the XII century. Currently, the monastery is uninhabited, in 1957 was declared a cultural monument of national importance.
Bulgarian village – on this excursion you can familiarize yourself with the life and lifestyle of the old Bulgarian village, its crafts and cuisine, national customs. Perhaps you will be given the opportunity to personally make some souvenir, then show a typical village house with traditional furniture and utensils. For younger visitors, there is a children’s program with entertainment, riding horses, donkeys or ponies. All guests will enjoy tasty treats prepared in accordance with Bulgarian traditions. You can taste the Bulgarian national dishes and Bulgarian wine. Dinner is usually accompanied by a folklore program with dances and songs. The highlight of the program is Nestinar dances on hot coals.
Dolphinarium in Varna is one of the most amusing rides that Bulgaria offers to its guests. Dolphinarium was built in 1984 and has 1134 places.
However, keep in mind that a visit to the legendary Shipka Pass requires some physical training, as tourists are expected to climb high stone steps to the monument to the defenders at the top.
But with the Valley of Roses its own quaintness – it is better to visit it in May-June, since it is in these months that the roses stand in the very color.
And this is the smallest representation of tourist entertainment in Bulgaria!
