Nestled in the heart of the Balkan Peninsula, Bulgaria is a country that seamlessly blends the allure of ancient history with the vibrancy of modern life. From its snow-capped mountains and lush forests to its stunning Black Sea coastline, Bulgaria offers a diverse landscape that will captivate travelers seeking an unforgettable adventure.

June - August
The best months to explore Bulgaria are the summer months (unless you're looking to ski!). During the summer, temperatures are usually nice without too many uncomfortably hot days, and the weather is perfect for hiking in the mountains. If you're visiting in the winter months, head to Bansko for skiing and hot springs!

Absolutely, Bulgaria is very safe. We never felt unsafe or uncomfortable anywhere we went.

Bulgaria uses the Lev. We recommend always having some cash on you, but credit cards are widely accepted in Bulgaria, so you don't need too much!

How to Get Around Bulgaria

Bulgaria is a pretty easy country to navigate, with trains, buses, and cheap car rental options. Obviously, the easiest way to get to all the places you want to visit will be with a car – we typically don’t rent cars when we travel but we did in Bulgaria to visit Bansko, do the 7 Rila Lakes hike, and visit the Rila Monastery from Sofia.

For the rest of our traveling through Bulgaria, we found the trains to be cheap and fairly comfortable (though they can get hot in the summer!). We also preferred trains over buses because the buses would normally require booking a few days in advance, which doesn’t work well with an ever-changing schedule. However, do be warned that the Bulgarian trains are quite slow, and buses may even be faster depending on your route.
