    Pocket Guide: Bulgaria

    Despite its small size Bulgaria has given to the world far more than its share of historical and cultural treasures. Several of Europe’s earliest civilizations were formed here in antiquity, and many awe-inspiring ancient temples, fortresses and tombs have been uncovered, as well as the oldest known piece of gold jewellery, on display in the coastal resort of Varna. This is a country saturated with tradition, yet far from rooted in the past, as you will see in its modern hotels. The lively seaside towns dot the Black Sea coastline, the cities of Sofia, Plovdiv and Ruse renowned for their architecture and cultural opportunities, and a sterling reputation for winter sports, all ensure Bulgaria earns its place among the most underrated European destinations.

    Areas & Cities: Top Bulgaria Hotel Locations

    Sofia - One of Europe’s most affordable capital cities, Sofia sits at the foot of the Vitosha Mountain. An absorbing mix of architectural styles reflects the leanings of the many foreign architects invited to build here following the War of Liberation in the 19th century. After exploring the spectacular Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, which can hold up to 10,000 worshippers, and also houses a number of religious icons, rest up a while in one of Sofia’s many streetside cafes. You won’t break the bank with a hotel in Sofia.

    Plovdiv - Known as the City of the Seven Hills, Plovdiv is one of the world’s oldest cities, having over the centuries been ruled by the Greeks, the Goths, the Huns, the Celts, the Romans, the Crusaders and the Turks, among others. As one might expect then, several notable archaeological features have been unearthed here, from ancient theatres to medieval towers, Ottoman baths and mosques.

    Varna - Among the attractions in this lively Black Sea coastal resort are the Varna Archaeological Museum, which has on display the oldest gold jewellery ever found, and the Sea Garden park. With an aquarium, a zoo, a beautiful fountain, an open-air theatre and a park, you can easily lose a day around here - and why not? For those in search of evening entertainment, there are plenty of nightspots clustered along the seafront and hotel to lay your head.

    Ruse - Bulgaria’s ‘Little Vienna’ is a cosmopolitan city on the banks of the romantic Danube, and famed for its beautifully preserved Neo-Baroque and Neo-Rococo architecture, particularly along Aleksandrovka Street in the old city centre. Panoramic views are afforded from the TV Tower, built during Soviet times.

    Things to See with a Hotel in Bulgaria

    For a dose of Bulgarian life at the turn of the 20th century, visit the Kaliopa House in Ruse, with its exquisite furnishings and textiles that reflect the introduction of European culture into Bulgaria. In Sofia, no-one should miss the Largo, a notable example of Soviet Classicism architecture - in the middle of the complex you will find the ruins of Serdica, an ancient Thracian and Roman city that has been protectively encased in a glass dome.

    Things to Do in Bulgaria

    Discover a jewel of the Bulgarian Renaissance period with a Koprivshtitsa small-group tour by coach - amble along the cobbled streets, admire the ornamental wood carvings on the outside of homes and churches, or join in the fun at the popular folk festivals held here. A few hours south of Sofia is Melnik, Bulgaria smallest town and scattered with notable architecture. The local wine was reportedly a favourite of Winston Churchill but if you’d like to take the measure of it yourself, be on your guard - it’s pretty strong.

    "Excellent, central hotel"
    We arrived two hours before the published check-in time but the hotel staff went out of their way to prepare our room early, although there was an understandable delay of about forty minutes. It offers what you would expect from a 5-star hotel - my wife enjoyed an excellent massage and facial at reasonable prices. The best thing about the hotel is its location, right next to Serdika metro station, the junction of Sofia's two metro lines. All the central tourist sights are within reasonable walking distance - even my wife managed them without too many complaints - and it's at one end of Vitosha Boulevard, the main shopping street.

    Hotel Imperial

    "Excellent hotel, reasonable prices"
    Hotel staff were extremely welcoming when we arrived. It was the middle of the afternoon and we were hungry, so we had a late lunch at the hotel, after finding that it's prices were similar to those of restaurants we had eaten at before (hotel dining room prices are usually extortionately expensive). The actual lunch was as good as any other we had had. The walk to town was about a mile, rather longer than my wife was willing to put up with, but we found that buses 93 and 66 provided convenient transport to the city centre, the nearest bus stops to the hotel being at the junction of Maria Luiza and Lev Tolstoy. My wife had an excellent massage and facial in the hotel SPA at very reasonable prices.

    Premier Luxury Mountain Resort

    11 Karamanitza str., Bansko - Map
    "Pleasantly surprised!"
    Booked 1 night stay first part of June and picked the hotel because they looked like the spa services was a good price. The hotel is surrounded by beautiful mountains and is close to the ski resort. It is about a mile from the central part of town, which made for a nice walk. We wish we noticed that they had a bike rental since we were limited on time and would have been able to see more during our short stay. The staff were extremely helpful and were very attentive. Hotel rooms were spacious and very comfortable. We had a balcony that looked out on the backside of the hotel. Sadly Bansko is over built with unfinished hotels and Premier has a few around them, but it's still beautiful. Most places don't open until end of June, first part of July, but we found some amazing restaurants and shops filled with great art and gifts. The continental breakfast was very nice and wish we had time to try the restaurant in the hotel. The spa service was really nice and worth every penny. Just wish the steam room was working better.
