Bulgaria’s primary draw for travelers is its beautiful coastline along the Black Sea, but that is just one of Bulgaria’s many striking features. Since joining the EU and working to develop a stable democracy, Bulgaria has quickly become one of Europe’s best kept secrets. Hit the slopes at one of Bulgaria’s many ski resorts, or spend an afternoon dining in the picturesque countryside. Retaining much of their old-world charm, as well as exhibiting traces of Soviet influence, a visit to a Bulgarian village may be the next-best thing to traveling back in time. With Bulgaria’s efficient and cheap public transportation, you can be dancing in a chic nightclub by day’s end.
