Bulgaria is a Balkan country with various terrain including Black Sea coastline, a mountainous interior and rivers, including the Danube. A cultural mix between Greek, Slavic, Ottoman, and Persian influences. However, it is an underappreciated wonder- overshadowed by its many European neighbours.
The capital city, Sofia
The best time to visit Bulgaria is during the spring and autumn months, above all. From April – May and September – October, as the climate will be pleasant, and the prices will be lower.
High Tourist Season: June – August
From June – August (summer) is the high season in Bulgaria. This is the time to visit Bulgaria if you want to experience the lively atmosphere and spend time with the crowds.
Low Season: November – March
Winter is mostly low season across the country, as there is lots of snow. Therefore this is also the time when the majority of the smaller towns will close for tourists.
Ski Season: December – February
The winter period is the top season for ski resorts when the snowfall is even and thick.
We have mostly visited the central and eastern part of Bulgaria. You can find below our experiences to decide for yourself. Is it truly an underrated country to visit in Europe? :)
