ACTIVITY DETAILS

The tour starts early in the morning, any day of the week and you are collected from any point of your wish in Sofia city. It takes hour and a half to get to Plovdiv where we would explore the old town with the Roman Stadium, archeological complex "Nebet Tepe" and Kapana art district. We would then drive half an hour more to get to Bachkovo Monastery - the second biggest Orthodox monastery in Bulgaria. Since many nice traditional restaurants are situated around the monastery, we would recommend you to have a delicious lunch in one of them before we head to Koprivshtitsa - the Bulgarian center of the revolution. In Koprivshtitsa itself, we would explore the traditional architecture of Bulgarian style, would visit some museums of famous revolutionaries and would then continue our drive to Veliko Tarnovo. The agenda of the first day completes late arrival in Veliko Tarnovo and check-in at a hotel there. The second day of the tour is dedicated to Veliko Tarnovo - we would visit the Asenevtsi monument - named after the famous Bulgarian kings - Asen, Petar, Kaloyan and Asen II. We would then continue to the old town Varusha where you would be amazed of the many little craft shops for traditional Bulgarian household items and souvenirs. We would recommend you a place to have nice traditional lunch in one of the many cozy restaurants around. Top of the cake would be visiting of Tsarevets fortress and the Holy Forty Martyrs Church where the tombs of the Bulgarian Kings are. When we are sure that we have explored Veliko Tarnovo, we would take another three hours drive to Varna - the sea capital of Bulgaria where we would arrive late in the evening and will check-in at a hotel for the second night of our journey. Day 3 will certainly not be less exciting with planned visit of the pearls of the Black Sea - Balchik where we would enjoy large and colorful botanical garden situated at the very side shore; Kaliakra Cape that offers breath taking views of infinity sea; Aladzha Monatsery that is a rockside monastery with cells of the monks located in the rock itself on the very side shore and Golden Sands that is the second biggest seaside resort of Bulgaria. The last night of our trip we will spend in the Golden Sands resort itself where during the active seasons, you may enjoy the dynamic night life. On day four as of the morning we would drive back to Varna in order to explore the sea capital. What we consider worth to see in Varna is the Sea Garden, The Pantheon, The Dolphinarium, The Navi museum, the side shore walking alley and the harbour. In the late afternoon we would exit Varna to leave back to Sofia. Five hours drive and we would drop you off at a point of your wish in Sofia city. Thus, with this dynamic agenda we would make sure you have seen and felt the most out of our beautiful country!
