The flight was on time which is great. The flight attendants are super friendly and helpful with your needs, questions & so on. We enjoyed the food and drinks provided. The fold flat seat was very comfortable with the extra pillows and a light comforter. The 14.5 hours flight was easy.

Bulgaria, located on the northeastern part of the Balkan Peninsula, was under Ottoman rule for 500 years. It emerged in 1878 as a monarchy, and then, after the Second World War, fell (quite happily) under Soviet rule for another 50 years. Now a member of the European Union (since 2007), it is a fascinating country to visit and closer to the UK than you might think; increasingly cheap flights to Bulgaria take only three hours.

Not yet in the eurozone, Bulgaria offers great value for money for those seeking sun on the Black Sea coast, skiers searching for fresh snow in Bansko and second homers hoping to pick up cheap property. There are airports in Sofia, Varna, Plovdiv, Burgas and Gorna Oryahovitsa.

The country has ancient cities with Unesco-listed attractions (including Kazanluk Tomb; the Ivanovo Rock Churches; and Rila Monastery), a slow and laid back way of life, and wild landscapes (Rila, Rhodopes, Balkan and Pirin Mountains), and Sofia, its charming, green and open capital.

One thing to remember before searching for Bulgaria flights, is the locals’ habit of shaking the head for yes and nodding for no.

Bulgaria climate

Bulgaria has hot, dry summers, much like the rest of the Balkan countries along the Black Sea. Winters can be cold and snowy, especially in the Balkan Mountains, and summers can be very hot.

Getting around Bulgaria

Buses are faster than trains and the network far more extensive, however, it can be confusing working out where they are going and where you need to get off, as many drivers will only speak Bulgarian. There are two train lines between Sofia and Varna and Sofia and Bourgas. Service is fairly poor.

Bulgaria Air flies between the main destinations of Sofia, Varna and Bourgas.

What is good to know if travelling to Bulgaria?

  • Sofia is one of the oldest capitals in Europe and it is filled with historic monuments. Increasingly popular as a city-break destination thanks to a host of low-cost airlines offering flights to Bulgaria, the city has many attractions for tourists. The Alexander Nevski Cathedral is one of the most popular tourist destinations, and supposedly the most photographed building in Bulgaria. When you visit the church, don’t miss the flea market, held in the square in front.
  • Varna is the starting point for holidays in the Golden Sands region. As well as the stunning beaches, there are a number of interesting destinations around the town. The Stone Forest, or Pobitite Kamani in Bulgarian, is, as the name suggests, a naturally occurring “forest” of stones. Limestone pillers, around ten metres tall, cover an area of approximately 13,000 square metres.
  • Plovdiv is Bulgaria’s second-largest city, situated in the centre of the country. One of its main attractions is the incredibly well-preserved Roman amphitheatre. It is still in use today for concerts and operas during the summer months. A Verdi Festival takes place annually. Book tickets for events at the tourist office.
  • Located on the southeast coast, Bourgas is the second-largest seaside town. The city beach is huge. Take a walk along the pier, with views of the sea, port, beach and city.
  • The festival of Martenitsa takes place on March 1 and is the Bulgarian celebration of the start of Spring. Bulgarians give each other red and white spring or wood dolls, called martenitsi. These are tied to the wrist or pinned to clothes and worn until the person sees a stork for the first time that year – a sign that winter will not last.
  • If you’re looking for somewhere to stay in Bulgaria, a popular site for user reviews is Trivago. Take a look at the pages on hotels in Sofia, hotels in Varna or hotels in Plovdiv for recommendations.
  • When is the best time to fly to Bulgaria?

    Peak Season: Peak season at the coast is, naturally, summertime, with most visitors arriving off their flights to Bulgaria between late June and early September.

The weather is less good, but the scenery is still appealing.
