Bulgaria by zak on 26 September 2004 6:35pm
I've just got back from Bulgaria, it's a lovely country with much contrast, but I would not advise on traveling to Bulgaria for a family holiday, as tourism isn't quite up to expectations over there to bring the family! But it's a GREAT place to travel on your own!

I've been skiing in Bulgaria a couple of times 8 years ago ... mainly 'cos it was a lot cheaper than anywhere else and snow is snow after all.

I'd have hoped that tourism might have been improved by now. Back then, I found out the hard way (cracked rib) that medical facilities weren't all that and that hotel food was dire. The foyer of my hotel had a load of very explicit hard core videos on open display even though many families with children were trooping past them each day ! Our rep didn't seem to care ....

I visited Bulgaria for a week in August. We stayed in the Golden Sands resort by the black sea. Our hotel the Perla was modern and very clean. There are lots of bars, shops and restaurants. We spent quite a lot of time in Varna as well. This is a modern friendly place. The countryside was lovely and we hired a taxi driver for two days at £40 per day to take us all over to see things. I can recommend it.

It sounds as if you had a great time in Bulgaria Paul, you would surely feel different if you went to the area where I went; Sunny Beach, the name says it all; tacky nasty and full of grime!

I went to Bulgaria a couple of years ago. Talk about cheap! You can eat out and have a good meal for 3 or 4 quid. Now that the old Socialist system is over and finished, there is a lot of building work and development happening in the country. However, the countryside is beautiful and unspoilt.
By the Black Sea it gets surprisingly cold at night, even in summer. Nice country, worth a visit.
