Travel to Bulgaria / Bulgaria Vacation Rentals

Could it be the history that’s attracting you to Bulgaria? Maybe it’s the wide variety of nature? Perhaps the monasteries and churches? Whatever your pleasure, it’s sure to be enhanced by a Bulgaria vacation rental.

Bulgaria Nature

Your Bulgaria vacation villa may very well be surrounded by nature! Bulgaria is considered the land of roses, and the beautiful Valley of Roses (near the town of Kazanluk) is a world leader in the production of rose oil. Take a few looks at the Balchik Botanical Garden, which is a garden owned by the University of Sofia. Caves in Bulgaria number greater than 4600, and offer both history and strange natural formation; the popular ones include Magura Cave, Snejanka Cave, and Ledenika Cave. With many natural mineral spas available, it’s hard to choose one to visit. The sandstone and conglomerate Rocks of Belogradchik present visitors with incredible shapes and outlines of animate and inanimate objects.

Bulgaria Vacation Spots

The Black Sea coastal area calls vacationers to an exciting destination, full of gold sand and clear water. From archeological finds at Roussalka in the north, to the great flora and fauna present in Ahtopol in the south, resorts line the coast. Attractions on the coast include the Balchick Botanical Garden, with gardens placed on steep hillsides and a remarkable amount of cacti growing. Great art in the form of vases, jewelry, and anchors resides in the Museum of Ancient Art in Sozopol as well as architecture of solid wooden homes. Strandzha fire-dances entertain visitors in the various restaurants and pubs, especially on the southern part of the coast.

Bulgaria is quite mountainous in its terrain, and vacationers can bask in the natural beauty of the mountain regions. Rila contains the highest peak called Moussala and has more than 2,000 types of plant life. Pirin is brimming with lakes and its plant life includes edelweiss and Baikousheva fir. The Rhodopes range is verdant with the air of the Mediterranean climate, and the Balkan range is noted for excellent hiking, and caves to capture interest.

The villages of Bulgaria have a spirit of their own and willingly open doors for those who visit. The traditions, and folklore are plentiful, as well as tasty cuisine and crafts of old origin. Bozhentsi up until the 20th century was the economic center for other Balkan villages and is now an architectural and historic reserve area. Dug into the ground is Arbanassi’s church called the Birth of Christ, holding a curious art gallery of realistic figures and scenes from the Bible, all exact origin unknown.

More than six hundred mineral springs exist in Bulgaria, with highly varied temperatures from rather cool to quite hot. People seek cures from a host of ailments, and also get to enjoy the beautiful areas that surround the health resorts, offering physical therapy in conjunction with the spas. Some of the most popular spa resorts are located at Sandanski, Hissarya, and Velingrad.

Is a trip to Bulgaria complete without visiting one of the many monasteries? Aladja Monastery is an example of a rock monastery and colored frescoes dating back to the 13th and 14th centuries can still be found on the walls. Bachkovo Monastery is quite old; it was started in 1083 with notable architecture and has a collection of fascinating icons. The Rila Monastery once served as the cultural/spiritual center for Bulgaria and has a hearty history from the 900’s behind it.

An exciting nightlife awaits visitors in Sofia, the capital of Bulgaria, where pubs, clubs, and discos merge. Dining on Bulgarian cuisine gives a taste of the Mediterranean with a twist. Visit the Alexander Nevski Memorial Church, considered to be the epitome of architecture and icon collections. The Vassil Levski Monument denotes the location where the Turks hanged him for playing the key role in freeing Bulgaria from the Ottoman Empire.

The old Bulgarian capitals of Pliska, Preslav, and old Veliko Turnovo combine to make an interesting tour. Visit the ruins of the first Bulgarian Capital just outside of Pliska, discover the medieval town layout of Veliki Preslav, and Veliko Turnovo’s three hills.
