BULGARIA - Exploring the COUNTRY


Sofia is lucky to be at the foot of the majestic Vitosha mountain. Standing at a proud 2290 metres high, the mountain provides hiking and skiing opportunities for the city's residents and can be a welcome break from the summer heat only 15 km away from the centre of town.

What to do on Vitosha?


Bulgaria is a Balkan nation with diverse terrain encompassing Black Sea coastline, a mountainous interior and rivers, including the Danube. A cultural melting pot with Greek, Slavic, Ottoman, and Persian influences, it has a rich heritage of traditional dance, music, costumes, and crafts.
