8 reasons to visit Bulgaria (winter edition)

8 reasons to visit Bulgaria (winter edition)

Have you been to Bulgaria? Here are the 8 reasons to visit Bulgaria during the winter. I would also suggest you combine it with the super-cool Eventex Congress 2015.

Super Yummy Food


Bulgaria is a top “slow food” destination, famous for bringing the farm to the table. Organic fruits, vegetables, herbs and meat, combined with the well-known Bulgarian yogurt and cheese cause a mouthwatering sensation that describes the Bulgarian dining experience as “one of the wonders of this world”.

Robust drinks


Bulgaria is a world class wine producer with sorts that are grown nowhere else. Another popular local spirit is rakia, which comes in immense variety of flavors. Local beers are good enough to compete with the world famous brands while the healthy soft drinks are a must-try for those don’t favor liquor.

Party, Party, Party

Bulgaria is an excellent party destination. Sofia alone accommodates over 1,000 night clubs, piano bars, irish pubs, live-music halls and restaurants that guarantee а fun blast after dark! Clubs don’t close until sunrise or some not even before noon!

Value for Money

Get excellent value for your money. Your trip will be 3x cheaper than most European destinations, while the services you get will be the same or even better. Still overlooked by most tourists, Sofia offers low prices and high standard to those looking for adventure out of the mainstream.

Top winter destination

Bulgaria has more than 10 ski resorts, three of which are major international destinations. Located on three different mountains, the closest is just 40 minutes away from Sofia. You have ski schools, kindergarten and ski shows at your disposal while you slope down one of the best Biathlon tracks in the world as late as 10 pm.

Amazing nature & people

With more than 600 thermal springs, ⅓ of territory covered by forests and holding the third place in biodiversity in whole Europe, Bulgaria is a real dream destination. People are friendly and hospitable, characterized by their exotic look, sense of humor and stylish attire. Now you know why some say “God gave Bulgarians a piece of heaven”!

History & Culture

You’ll find Bulgaria in top 3 of world’s most valuable archeological sites. It’s the oldest European country that hasn’t changed its name since its establishment more than 1300 years ago. The Bulgarian nation has one of the richest folk heritage in the world. Europe’s oldest inhabited city and European capital of culture – Plovdiv –  is an hour away from Sofia.

The Internet

As one of the countries with the fastest internet in the world and free Wi-Fi hotspots almost everywhere, you can get to do some of your work from distance. More importantly, you won’t lose touch with your friends and family and will be sharing your experiences on the go.
