Some of the best deals are already taken, but as the official kick-off of the campaign approaches, there are still excellent offers available at Pamporovo ski resort. The discount for the “early birds” reserving a suite or an apartment in the most prominent resort of Rhodopes Mountain, reached up to 15 percent. Most of the budget listings were booked, yet the affordable options are present if searching for vacant rooms through the Balkan Holidays service. Checking the most trusted tour operator in the region occurs to be the safe bet, no matter when you start the search for your hotel around Pamporovo ski map. The sooner you do this – the higher is the chance to save money.
It might be a little too much to say it was a well-kept secret – over the past decade Bulgaria skiing gained continuously growing fame as the primary option for budget winter vacations.
Thousands of western travelers have already visited the country in the months of snow and know that the Balkan destinations are much more affordable compared to the vast majority of ski resorts in the Alps. But when Mr. X or Ms. Y sees the deals available several weeks before the start of the season, he or she can’t help but say: “Shush! Don’t let anyone know about this! Not before we book it!”
While it might be a not as popular choice as its neighbors Italy or Austria when it comes to winter sports activity, this small country easily wins the hearts of travelers who decide to visit the land. Set somewhere in between the Balkan Peninsula and the Alps, the former Yugoslav republic becomes a favorite of more and more people every year. Slovenia skiing season is one of the main reason for the growing popularity of this territory as a tourist destination, but it’s definitely not the only reason.
It wouldn’t take long to convince you if it already happened in your life before. Hardly would anyone forget easily the time of taking on holidays to Bulgaria. It might not be as fancy as going on vacation to St. Tropez or represent such a distinct destination as the pyramids of Egypt. But visiting the country located in the heart of the Balkans is something worth trying… And repeating.
In the last two decades or so, this resort has grown significantly in terms of the demand, the tourist flow and thus – the infrastructurw and the quality of the service. It is beyond any doubt that in Bulgaria Sunny Beach is the leading seaside destination and the place pools more and more people every year. What would ask those who have never been on the Black Sea – let us guess about it.
Let us guess about it. The British tourists will prefer to pack up for a place where the weather is nice to avoid the rainy days in the UK that never end even in the middle of the year. The beauties of nature will definitely add to the list of reason to pick one place or another. The Brits will certainly look for the opportunities that turn out to be more affordable so the all-inclusive holidays will probably fit the most such a concept. And everyone regardless of origin or domicile would like to have a good time during the summer vacation. Well, some consider the “good time” as the possibility to rest undisturbed for a week or two while for others relaxing all the time sounds boring. It depends who you ask but one thing is for sure – every traveler likes to feel safe heading for a distant trip.
Despite being not present in the list of the countries that have winners in the Eurovision, Bulgarian performers enjoy substantial success in the recent years. Last year a young singer from the country – Kristian Kostov, reached to the runner-up position and ranked really close to the top of the most prominent continental song contest. The 4th place of Poly Genova, one of the most recognized faces in Bulgarian pop music have to be added to the list of the achievements. Well, Eurovision 2018 wasn’t a big deal and the group representing the country didn’t make it to the top 10. But this year speaking of Bulgaria Sunny Beach is the name to make it more famous around the world. The leading seaside resort on the Black Sea definitely has a bigger chance to become a common name for Western Europe compared to the singing band called Equinox.
Combining beach enjoyment and historic object visit represents the main agenda of thousands of travelers for the summer holidays. While far from the popularity of Italian or Greek resorts and not as famous as Cascais in Portugal or Dubrovnik in Croatia, in Bulgaria Nessebar is the top choice of such category. The hype of modernity meets the romantic scent of ancient to form a unique mix for a great vacation on the Black Sea coast.
When two sides make up for one wonderful experience
The town is divided literally in two. That part of Nessebar, Bulgaria that was built and developed more recently is bigger in size and population and actually this is where you can find both beach zones and the vast majority of hotels – the best deals are to be found through Balkan Holidays . A narrow strip of land connects the modern borough with the old town which was habited for more than 3 millennia and has been deservedly chosen to make the list of UNESCO World Heritage. And some hotels in Nessebar, Bulgaria are situated in the ancient quarter – 3-star Victoria, for example, constructed to fit within the whole architectural landscape of that part of the town.
Once you will put your feet on the beach, you will realize that the name speaks for itself indeed. In the name of the Golden Sands Bulgaria has more than half-century-long tradition more likely than the history to pull the people on the shore is… the shore.
1. The sands made of gold
One of the most beautiful beaches on the whole Black Sea coastline is to be found less than a half-hour away from Varna, the biggest Bulgarian maritime city. The dazzling view serves only as a starter once you reach the area. Have we mentioned that Golden Sands really have sands looking and feeling like being made of gold? Oh, we did it, several times actually. Smooth and nice, 3,5 km long and about 100 m wide at its widest, in Bulgaria Golden Sands is considered a top quality resort. But the fame of Zlatni Pyasatsi (the native alias of the place) isn’t only locally bound – for a long time it was preferred destination for tourists from Russia and other Eastern European countries, and the turn of the centuries made it increasingly attractive to tens of thousands of guests from the West, especially British tourists.
In Bulgaria, Bansko has been a place to generate a lot of buzz in the past decade. Well, recently the name of the Pirin mountain based resort was put in the middle of a controversy concerning the ongoing feud about the construction of a second gondola lift in the ski zone. While the conflict is hot in the country, the winter sports site is hot too because of the unfading demand for Bansko holidays. Sometimes it’s busy indeed on the base station and no one likes to wait for hours to get on the cabin.
But besides the controversy, it is quite clear in last few years that regarding Bansko Bulgaria ski resort hasn’t been so popular than ever before. A big share of the Pirin winter center prominence is owed to the fact that it claimed the top of the rankings of the cheapest ski destinations in Europe. The ski holidays Bansko offer to the tourists still represent some of the most affordable even now when the first place in the table belongs to another resort.
