Despite being way out on the edge of Europe, Bulgaria is oh-so European. If you love the cafe culture, the nightlife and the food of Europe but want to pay half the price, get on down to Bulgaria where the beer is cheap, the weather is warm and there are a medley of picturesque towns and villages which look like something out of a picture book.

My Bulgaria Highlights

Here’s where I got to in Bulgaria. Click the destination name for related blog posts.


A quintessentially charming European capital, with some great architecture and vast, pedestrianised streets lined with dozens of cafes, restaurants and bars.

Veliko Tarnovo

The kind of town you expect to see in a picture book or on a jigsaw puzzle but not in real life. The joy of Veliko Tarnovo is found in walking outside, wandering round and getting lost.
