    This was really interesting to read about. I hadn’t considered the trends of older travelers increasing tourism in general but there is certainly an effect from it from the data you shared, and it makes perfect sense. It seems that travel has become more accessible in general as well, especially for my own generation. It will be interesting to see if this has any affects on Bulgaria over time, if it will become as you say a classic holiday spot, and if the prices will remain low.

    Wow, I had no idea Bulgaria was becoming so popular among older people. That is a huge increase! But the way you describe it, it makes total sense, it sounds like Bulgaria has a lot to offer. Do you think older travelers are also becoming more adventurous and willing to think outside of the box when it comes to holiday destinations? I’ve only ever been to Sofia but I would love to explore more of Bulgaria, especially the countryside. Even though I am definitely not an older traveler 😉

      IDK about most of the travelers but there some ardent travelers who are always in a hunt of less frequented destinations and I am surely one of them.

    Bulgaria is high on our bucket list and I’d love to plan a trip to this beautiful country next year. I had heard about the Black Sea resorts that are great for summers but hadn’t known about the ski resorts Pamporovo and Borovets until I read your post. With relatively low prices for now and year-round attractions, it’s not surprising that it has started to attract more and more tourists now.

    This is quite interesting, I must say. I would have never imagined Bulgaria as a destination for older travelers especially because it is still very offbeat for the younger crowd. But this is enlightening. Would love to see further insights from you as to what is causing this shift.

      It is a hidden track not just for younger travelers but also for older travelers.

    This is good to read this topic related with older traveler. If I have to find a place to my parents , Bulgaria is the interesting one. Thank you for remind of insurance during the traveling especially for older traveler. Also the accomodation , tour guide and flight links are easy to contact and survey cheaper rate.
