First time visitors to Bulgaria are often surprised by the diversity and stunning natural beauty. For years a real effort has been made in order to preserve the country?s rich and unspoilt flora and fauna. As a result, today?s Bulgaria is ecologically one of the purest countries in Europe, with exceptionally clear air and water resources. There are 7 national parks, more than 3000 protected natural sites and 17 bio-spherical reserves (the greatest recorded number in Europe). There are also 419 protected animal species and 63 protected types of plant.
As Bulgaria continues to attract more and more visitors, the list of activities available continues to grow.
Bulgaria has no less than four different mountain ranges, the Stara Planina, the Rhodope, the Rila and the Pirin mountains. After receiving major investment from the EU Bulgaria now boasts three international quality ski resorts, Pamporovo, Borovets and Bansko. These resorts offer piste up to 2715m above ski level with ski runs totalling up to 75km.
In summer the mountains continue to attract a large number of visitors with some of the best hiking in Europe available. Mountain bikers and horse riders are also beginning to discover the attractions of Bulgaria.
The area around Sopot in the Stara Planina also boasts some of the best handgliding and paragliding conditions in Europe.
With a coastline of 354 km along the Black Sea, Bulgaria attracts many hundreds of thousands of holiday makers every summer. The commercial season runs from May through to October every year with most beach resorts remaining shut outside of this main holiday period.
The coastline boasts a number of world class beaches offering deep, fine golden sand. The area of the Black Sea around Bulgaria also has sea temperatures in the summer months that are actually higher than the Mediterranean.
With little or no tide and very small waves, swimming in the Black Sea is very safe for both young and old.
In the coastal regions many areas offer special mud treatments from the coastal lakes. These have become famous for their healing and youth giving qualities attracting many tourists all year around.
In the mountain regions, Bulgaria has literally hundreds of natural mineral water springs. A great many of these are thermal with temperatures up to 60 degrees and with a wide variety of mineralisations. Towns such as Bania (near Bansko) and Velingrad offer traditional spas (some dating back to Roman times) where bathing and other health treatments are available. As with most activities in Bulgaria, these health spas cost around 20-30% of the price of similar locations in Western Europe.
Bulgaria has a rich history. Many visitors find time to journey to many of the cultural sites dotted throughout Bulgaria. Some of the most important archaeological sites in Europe are located within Bulgaria?s borders with new discoveries still being made. Combined with the rich religious heritage of the region, there is no shortage of sites to visit. In recognition of the importance and unique nature of many of these locations, some have now been given UNESCO World Heritage status.
Unlike many other parts of the world, Bulgaria has retained a great number of traditional folk and religious celebrations. Almost every week in Bulgaria there is a celebration taking place in one of its many regions. From the orthodox Easter to the Valley of the Roses celebrations, visitors should find the time to explore at least some of these events.
