But before you go on a trip to this country by bus, you need to calculate your own strength. To kids such trips, with rising at 6 am, and also by arrival around 2 am, will become a burden. Some physical training requires a climb up the high steps to the famous monument to the defenders, located on the Shipka Pass. In addition to a large number of stone steps, you will have to face the cold and strong winds at the very top.

Talking further about what kind of excursions in Bulgariathe most popular, you can also highlight the city of Veliko Tarnovo - the ancient Bulgarian capital. His visit is mostly combined with a visit to the Rose Valley, and also with a walk in the Shipka Pass.

However, those living near Sunny Beach will be paid much less for it, since Nessebar is near the resort. But vacationers in the resort of Golden Sands can independently get to the port city of Varna and Aladzhi - a medieval monastery, since all this is close to the main recreation area.
