10 of the most beautiful places to visit in Bulgaria by Ellis Shuman – I think it’s quite amazing that Bulgaria is still considered to be off the beaten track for Western tourists, because the country has a bit of everything, and all at very affordable prices. The Mountain slopes of Bansko and Pomporovo attract skiers in the winter and the Black Sea beaches draw the crowds in the summer months. Sofia – the capital – is probably not the most beautiful city you can visit, but once you get out into the countryside and start exploring the gorgeous coastline, I think you’ll fall captive to Bulgaria’s special charm. Here is my choice for the most beautiful places to visit in Bulgaria..Има още →
Melnik Bulgaria is a blend of unique nature – the cliffs clustered around the houses on the hills, history, culture and wine. It is reputed to be the most romantic town in Bulgaria! With its history, winding streets and ancient houses it really is like a picture postcard and utterly charming. It’s also the smallest town in Bulgaria with around 230 inhabitants. Set in the most south-westerly corner of Bulgaria in the municipality of Blagoevgrad, which covers 25 villages, Melnik lies in the warmest and sunniest part of the country. It is surrounded by three of the country’s largest mountains, Rila, Pirin and the Rhodopes and consequently offers clean, clear air and wonderful mountain spas.
Blagoevgrad city is one of the most important economic and cultural centres in the south western region as the main international road between Bulgaria and Greece runs through it. The area around has many natural resources and is extremely scenic with fabulous lakes and rivers providing pure fresh spring water. Има още →
