At little more than a three-hour flight from the UK, Bulgaria is fast becoming a hot spot for last-minute holidays.
Places to stay in Bulgaria
There’s a plethora of places to stay in Bulgaria, from the purpose-built resort of Sunny Beach to the quieter towns of Obzor and Nessebar. From affordable hotels with all the basics covered to the more palatial beach-fronted affairs with multiple swimming pools, there’s something for everyone in Bulgaria.
Things to do in Bulgaria
From historic towns to mud baths and water parks, there’s a multitude of things to do in Bulgaria. A 10-minute drive from Sunny Beach will bring you to the UNESCO-listed town of Ravda. You’ll be able to wander the cobbled streets and see the town’s Bulgarian and Byzantine churches. For a faster pace, there’s the Ravda Aqua Paradise water park, the biggest in Bulgaria. The near-vertical Space Jam slide and the Kamikaze run are just two of the 1300-metres’ worth of slides to choose from.
