The country’s filled with charming villages and towns situated in the picturesque mountains and plains where you can enjoy the traditional country life. There are several major cities to visit, such as Varna, Bourgas, and Plovdiv.
If you want to explore the countryside, there’s no better way to do it than take a camping and hiking trip or join up for a rural tourism and eco adventure. There are many historic sites and landmarks to visit and what better way to explore the country by cruising down the famous Danube River.
