Top 5 cities to visit in Bulgaria! Are you doing your internship abroad in Bulgaria and looking for the right places to have fun during your international internship? The team is thinking of you, welcome to this top 10 cities to visit in Bulgaria!
Sofia – The capital
Not to be missed when you’re on an internship abroad in Bulgaria: Sofia is THE big city of the country, full of surprises! Once you have passed the traditional cultural visits to discover the Thracian civilization, you can set off to explore the city in sight seeing mode: there are plenty of things to see and discover. It’s big, it’s beautiful, we love it! The only drawback is that public transport in Sofia is ageing and inefficient.
Varna – The seaside resort
Not only the city, Varna is the second largest economic city in the country, and it is located on the Black Sea: a great seaside town, where it is good to stroll in springtime to enjoy the mild temperatures that the country offers. It is also one of the most popular nightlife spots in Bulgaria: Varna is our favourite city 😉
Plovdiv – the most beautiful
If you want to see a hot city, it’s in the direction of Plovdiv! Once the European capital of culture, it has now become one of the tourist gems of Eastern Europe! Plovdiv enjoys an excellent reputation, and rightly so: it offers cultural wonders, and many tourist attractions. We love it!
Bourgas – between culture and beach
Bourgas is one of the major seaside towns: more than 200,000 inhabitants! Like Varna, it is situated on the Black Sea, and besides its advantageous geographical situation, it has an incredible ethnographic museum, where colourful traditional costumes are exhibited. To do, over a 4-day weekend, to make the most of the city!
Veliko Tarnovo – nature and culture
Former capital of the Bulgarian Empire, it has preserved the majestic period fortress! But it is far from being its only asset! Situated in the middle of Bulgaria, it is the starting point of several hiking trails, and in particular to visit Mount Tsarevets and Mount Trapezitsa: ideal for walking and discovering the Bulgarian fauna and flora.
Already 5 weekends to fill during your stay abroad in Bulgaria! If you still have some left: one bus ride and you are in Macedonia, Skopje, or Thessaloniki, one of the most beautiful cities in Greece!
