BULGARIA

Bulgaria offers a highly diverse landscape. Located in the heart of the Balkans, the north is dominated by the flat Danube Valley and the south by the highlands and elevated plains. Those in the know will head to the country’s Black Sea beaches, its lush valleys and ski resorts, historic cities and picturesque villages.

In Veliko Tarnovo see the monument of the Assens, a statue dedicated to the Bulgaria’s Kings. Explore the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Arbanassi. Once here visit a traditional 17th century merchant's house and enjoy the acoustics in the Church of the Holy Nativity.
