Bulgaria – a great place for holiday trips. Monuments and interesting places of this charming country.
Bulgaria is a country very often chosen by Poles as a vacation destination. There is nothing strange about it, as it is a country perfect for holiday trips. Bulgaria is located in the central part of the Balkan Peninsula in south-eastern Europe. It borders with other picturesque countries such as Greece, Turkey, Romania, Macedonia and Serbia. Bulgaria is separated from Romania by the very picturesque and well-known Danube River, and from the east it is washed by the magnificent Black Sea. Although we can find many interesting places throughout Bulgaria, tourists are most often attracted by the picturesque coast of the Black Sea.
Ever since Bulgaria became a member of the European Union, it began to develop very dynamically. Many cities and tourist resorts have experienced a construction boom. The seaside and mountain holiday resorts quickly gained popularity among holidaymakers. A variety of shops and nights of life have developed.
The amazing Bulgarian mountains occupy almost half of the country’s territory. Golden beaches stretch along the Black Sea for over 300 kilometers, which means that many people spend their holidays and vacations on beautiful beaches in Bulgaria. Holidaymakers can choose from authentic Bulgarian towns and villages that have retained their charm and tempt tourists with their Bulgarian hospitality. Bulgaria is particularly proud of its rich tradition and folklore, which are very important in the everyday life of Bulgarians.
Although the Black Sea does not have an impressive size, Bulgarian beaches, which stretch for 130 km, delight even the most demanding. Wide, sandy beaches, lush nature, all this makes the Bulgarian coast especially picturesque. It is also often called the Bulgarian Riviera. This term speaks for itself and there is nothing else to do but pack your bags and set off on a journey to beautiful Bulgaria. What is also extremely important, apart from wonderful beaches, we can find there a number of other interesting places.
