Overview

Bulgaria is a country touched by every chapter in history. Beginning with the Ottoman Empire's long reign to more recently, the Soviet Union, Bulgaria is a country built of powerful, majestic empires. 

This larger-than-life setting makes its presence felt everywhere you go, traversing grand, serene mountains to reach the shores of the Black Sea, whose waves lap against a long coastline filled with beaches where the nightlife is buzzing with art and music. 

Every cottage and building in Bulgaria has immortalized the story of its grand history - centuries-old monasteries, Orthodox stone churches, Roman amphitheaters, Thracian fortresses, Byzantine arches and Soviet buildings. 

Bulgaria's large-hearted spirit is a quality that the people have imbibed within themselves. There are cheerful, warm and welcoming Bulgarians, wherever you go. English might be a struggle, but their hospitality isn't. 

Bright and colorful like the people themselves, Bulgaria's food palate is as un-European as it gets. Raika, Bulgaria's national drink can be found on nearly every table you set your eyes upon, along with exotic-sounding dishes like Kyufte, Mehshana Skara and Shopska Salata.


In a continent as stratified as Europe, Bulgaria is like a breath of fresh air. Its majestic history and large-hearted culture will stay with you long after you've headed home. 

 

Itinerary

Day 01: Arrival in Sofia | Explore Sofia

Arrive in Sofia, the capital city. Our on-ground travel coordinator will receive you and transfer you to your hotel.

Today, we explore the city of Sofia. Lying in the shadow of the magnificent Vitosha Mountain, Sofia’s popular landmarks are testimony to its rich history and heritage.

We kick start the city tour with a visit to the iconic Aleksander Nevski Cathedral, one of the largest Eastern Orthodox churches in Europe, built in the memory of Russian soldiers who fought for Bulgaria’s independence in the Russo-Turkish war.

We then head to St. George Rotunda, a small red-brick church which is one of Sofia’s oldest preserved buildings.

Next on the list is the awe-inspiring St. Sofia Church. Dating back to the 6th century, this church was built on the foundations of older churches and tombs in this area by Byzantine Emperor Justinian.

We head to the elegant Ivan Vazov National Theatre. This impeccably designed building is a national symbol and brings alive beautiful pieces of drama and theatrical events.

Our next stop is the majestic former royal palace of the Tsar that now houses the National Art Gallery and the Ethnographic Museum.

We end the day with a visit to the Presidency building and take a walk around the square.

Overnight stay at Hilton Sofia.

 

Day 02: Half Day Tour | Pancharevo Lake with Kayaking

We start the day with a hearty breakfast.

The Pancharevo Lake, located about 30 minutes away from your hotel, is situated at the edge of Sofia. Surrounded by lush green mountains, this pristine lake is a little cocoon of tranquility. Post a short briefing, you can pick from a single or double seat kayak and paddle your way through this serene lake.

Post lunch, we head back to Sofia, stop by the Mall for a refreshing cup of coffee and indulge in shopping.

Post breakfast, you have the day at leisure. Explore the city, go on a shopping spree or try out the local food.
