    A nice post about this beautiful country – this gives me some new Ideas to what places to visit: A friend of mine is from Bulgaria and we decided to visit his home country this summer to mainly go hiking and take milkyway photos (yes, we’re both extremely into astrophotography)

    I honestly had no idea Bulgaria is such an amazing place to travel. It has everything! Mountains, gorgeous lakes, and big cities with amazing architecture too! Wow!

      It sure does, Elizabeth. Most of the tourists that visit head to the beaches even though there are so many more things to see.

    Well, I’m impressed! Even it’s the closest neighbor of Turkey, until I saw this post I had never thought about going there. Now, it’s an option!

    Wow, I think you are right – Bulgaria is the next big thing. This is one of those countries who receive so little attention, but it looks like an absolutely gem of a country to visit. Will use your post as a guide when I make it there. Can’t wait!!

    Wow, I hope I can go there soon. June and August seems good but also peak time for tourist I guess. Didn’t know that it’s still one of the poorest country in Europe, at least it it cheap and the views are really breathtaking.

      Yes, Laurence, June and August is when you’ll find most tourists around but if you want to explore the countryside and mountains don’t worry- most of the tourists will be at the Black Sea Coast

    Bulgaria is definitely on my list as one of the cheaper European countries not overrun with crowds…yet. It’d ve sun seeing that UFO building and the gorge and any place with castles, forts and the like has my vote. Shoulder season is my time to travel as it’s cheaper.

    Bulgaria seems like a beautiful destination. Heard a lot about Bulgaria’s untouched nature, virgin forests and misty mountains but never got a chance to visit. Your post has certainly inspired me to add it to the list. Rila Lakes look lovely.

    Wow Bulgaria is beautiful and your post surely puts it on my bucket-list. What I would love to visit the most, even more than Sofia is Veliko – 1000 years of history and the impregnable fortress! That’s just my kind of place! The landscape both in the city and outside in the mountains are jaw-dropping gorgeous. thanks for the fine introduction to this great country

    Bulgaria looks stunningly beautiful! Would definitely love to visit here one day as love the food options, the historical essence and overall feel of the place through these pictures. Was pleasantly surprised to read about Plovdiv, the city of seven hills. There is a pace in Maharashtra, India called Satara getting its name from seven forts – Saat – tara 🙂

      A small correction: the Black Sea Coast is popular and very touristy during the summer months. That’s why I barely mentioned that part of Bulgaria in this post 🙂

    As far as I know, Bulgaria already has been a very popular tourist-destination – whereby the emphasis lies on tourist. Now it has to be discovered by travellers – and your pictures – especially those of the lakes – show that it’s totally worth it.

      Well, yes and no. Bulgaria gets a solid number of visitors, true. But most of them visit the Black Sea coastal cities during the summer months, while the mountains and forests remain relatively unfrequented.

    Devils Throat…Now that sounds ominous! I’ve never visited Bulgaria but reading about the similarities between Prague old town and Sofia, it makes me wonder why I haven’t visited sooner! Plus, I’m a huge LOTR nerd so I definitely need to see this fort!
