A stunning country in Eastern Europe, Bulgaria is renowned for its picturesque mountains, quaint villages, mouth-watering cuisine, lovely beaches and friendly locals.

Discover scenic hiking routes or relish traditional folk songs and dances. From majestic mountains to sandy beaches, Bulgaria tempts you with its natural beauty and historic attractions. Visitors travelling by air will land at any of the following airports: Sofia Airport, Burgas Airport, Varna Airport, Plovdiv Airport and Gorna Oryahovitsa.

Bulgaria's capital, Sofia, is a charming urban centre located at the foot of the impressive Vitosha Mountains. It is a pleasant and youthful city boasting a 2,000-year old history. Admire 13th century frescoes, ornate mosques, historic churches and Roman ruins. Escape to its modern parks and gardens to commune with nature. Beyond the historic attractions, eclectic bars and restaurants as well as rich museums and galleries invite you to linger just a bit longer. Straddling seven hills, Plovdiv, the second largest city in the country, is a rapidly growing outsourcing centre famous for its ancient amphitheatre, universities, parks and revival architecture. Ramble through pretty cobblestone streets or spend time at an art gallery. You name it, Plovdiv has something to offer even the most discerning guests.
