In terms of attractions it's hard to beat: you can sunbathe on the many beaches of the Black Sea coast, hit the slopes at ski resorts like Pamporovo or Vitosha Mountain and marvel at natural landmarks like the Belogradchik Rocks.

WHAT TO PACK

what-to-pack

Sunglasses - Whether you're living the Bulgaria beach life or getting stuck into après-ski in Pamporovo, a good pair of shades will see you right.

 

A camera - With sights like the Alexander Nevsky Cathedral, the Rila Monastery and Plovdiv Old Town on display, you can bank on taking a lot of pictures!

 

A translator app - Bulgaria uses the Cyrillic alphabet, so road signs and restaurant menus will be indecipherable. Time to send your trusty smartphone to the rescue!

 

Painkillers & hydration treatments - From the Sunny Beach clubs to the Sofia nightlife, there are endless opportunities for good times in Bulgaria. Make sure you're equipped for a sore head or two.

 

An adapter plug and voltage transformer - Bulgaria uses the standard European 2-pin plug. The voltage here is 230V, so you'll need a step-down transformer if you want to use appliances that require 110V.
