Ask a novice traveler to describe the Balkan Peninsula, and you’ll likely encounter blank stares, quizzical looks and the ever-echoing “Waaait… where?”
But just because this land of lush mountains, sparkling seas and fluffy AF bread knots isn’t popular with Americans does NOT mean it should be tossed from your bucket list. Bulgaria, in particular, is the perfect place to start your Balkan adventure.
Obzor is a small town, which lies on a bay in the middle of the Black Sea coast offers some of the best beaches in Bulgaria. There are water sports galore from jet skiing to parasailing and for those seeking relaxation there are plenty of beach-based massage tables, cafes and lively hotels on the front, whilst towards the end of the beach there is a lovely park with fountains, waterfalls, bridges and palm trees. During the summer season there are a variety of cultural and music festivals where famous Bulgarian actors participate. One of the highlights of the season occurs at the beginning of August with the “Rockers Get-Together,” a music festival and biker meet, where hundreds of motorcyclists from all over the country gather together.
