Bulgaria offers a variety of beautiful old cities, historic landmarks, and breathtaking scenery. It is thus certainly worthwhile to take a trip across the country. Its geographical diversity in particular will amaze you, from the mountainous Balkans region up to the vast flatlands.
Whiz along the highway
There are a variety of transportation options, which can bring you to these wonderful sites. Bulgaria is famous for its highway, where car fanatics can speed fast — at least on some stretches of the road. Getting from one city to the next by car should not prove to be a problem at all. The road network is well-maintained and does not lack in traffic signs and signposts.
Taking the Train
If you prefer to gaze at the scenery while traveling through Bulgaria, trains will be your best bet. The Bulgarian train company BDZ does not only serve tourists and Bulgarians visiting other cities, but it is essential for thousands of commuters journeying to work every day.
This does not come as a surprise since there are around 5,400 kilometers of railroad tracks that zigzag across the country. The BDZ has become increasingly more expensive over the years. Fortunately, it offers some good alternatives in the form of group tickets, weekend fares, or discounts on monthly commuter tickets.
It may also be more relaxing than driving a car for longer trips, as the different types of trains offer various levels of comfort. This depends on your budget, of course. Another positive aspect about the BDZ is that they often cooperate with other countries train companies, such as those of Romania, Greece or Macedonia, in providing special offers for international trips.
Planes: The Traditional Means of Arrival
The cheapest and probably most convenient way of traveling long distances within Bulgaria as well as for getting there in the first place is, however, taking an airplane. You will find an airport in most major cities in Bulgaria. This is also a good way to travel to other countries within Europe as well, as many international flights have stopovers in cities such as Sofia or Varna.
Well-Organized Local Transportation Networks
The quality of public transport within a city often depends on its size, although even smaller cities such as Nuremberg do frequently have good public transportation systems. Most of the larger cities in Bulgaria have an extensive transport network. Sofia, for example, offer underground trains, trams, and buses to get their inhabitants from one end of the city to the other. Smaller towns usually only have one or two forms of public transportation (mostly buses).
These modes of transport are generally preferable to driving in cities, as time spent in traffic jams and looking for parking may take you twice as long. In addition, public transportation is comparatively inexpensive.
Things to Keep in Mind When Bringing Things from Home
If you want to bring your car to Bulgaria, make sure to double-check import regulations beforehand. Many Bulgarian cities now have environmental zones which may prevent certain cars from driving closer to the historical city center. The BAU is also a good address to get information concerning technical requirements and possible changes you need to make when planning on importing your car to Bulgaria, while simultaneously offering support in case of accidents or technical emergencies.
Also be sure to think of which appliances you want to bring. With 220V, the voltage in Bulgaria is much higher than, for example, in the US and may ruin your electrical appliances. As a general rule, it is usually a better idea to travel light when moving to another country. Attempting to maneuver larger items through customs may prove to be a waste of time and money.
