Is Bulgaria for you ?

 

Bulgaria is said to be one of the poorest countries in Europe , but why does it have a booming tourist industry . It’s not flash like Marbella , but this place has a wealth of culture and much more to offer .

pomorie has a population of around 15,000 people , and is a great place to explore in and out of season

How we see it

 

Cobbled un-even streets with chopped wood piled up outside their houses for fuel , which is delivered by horse and carts . Driving through the towns and villages you’ll see blocks of flats & old houses from the communist era , which basically need a good lick of white paint and a bit of tender loving care . Half built hotels and houses which have run out of money are common place , with a pile of rubble by the side . Bulgaria is the fastest growing economy in Europe so there is currently a heavy investment in infrastructure .

it's not unusal to find an old fishing boat lying in the street

The People

 

Before we first visited we asked several people what they liked about Bulgaria and all of them said immediately the people , who are warm and friendly , with the odd exception of course . The young are very trendy and very well turned out . In the bars you’ll often find the locals preferring a coffee rather than a pint of lager .

Food & Drink

 

Similar to Greek & Turkish food with lots of salads and yogurts , but also your normal good old English meals like pizza . Try the chicken shashlik on the skewers it’s fab .

 

We entered a popular restaurant in Pomorie only to find the menu completely in Bulgaria with no English translation and no pictures , so we chose our meal by our favourite numbers . The waitress was laughing whilst we were ordering which scared us a little , but we had a great variety of fish , meats ands other exotic dishes which were gorgeous .  

 

There is a wine factory in Pomorie which has a shop on-site and it’s cheap , but if you only there for a week then you can still get a bargain at the local supermarket . Kamenitza is the Bulgarian beer and it’s not too strong which helps you last a little longer , plus the old favourites like Stella & Becks .

 

 

 Why we love it

 

It’s great to experience a different culture with the people in their local shops & bars . Lovely tourist places to visit like Old Town Nessebar , which is a peninsula , and has cobbled streets and market traders . Great restaurants with a real Bulgarian feel , and fantastic local wines . It’s very cheap and one of the few places you can still visit and actually bring some of your spending money home . Also the resort itself is absolutely amazing , our apartment has superb views and it’s all on the beach .
