While most European countries suffered various levels of identity crisis over the centuries, Bulgaria was the only country to remain true to its given name. After 500 years of living by Turkish rules, Bulgaria sought independence and opened its arms to a new culture filled with artists, writers and musicians. First time visitors booking flights to Bulgaria can be confident that Bulgaria is rich in more than its natural landscape. A member of the European Union (as of January 2007), Bulgaria is part of an ever-growing community of countries focused on powerful and peaceful personal relationships.
Board a flight to Bulgaria for the same reasons you would travel to any other European country – get out and explore the scenery. Bulgaria sits along the Black Sea and most visitors book Bulgaria flights for a respite along the beach during the hot summer months. If the sun gets to be too much, take a trip through the tiny Bulgarian villages and immerse yourself in the red poppy-lined roads that seem to travel back in time. When your flight to Bulgaria arrives, you’ll learn that men and women still hold their ancient lifestyles sacred and thrive in their small communities, operated by rickshaws and street markets. A cheap flight to Bulgaria might be your way into the country, but visitors never forget the plentiful lifestyle Bulgaria enjoys.
Bulgaria has hot, dry summers, much like the rest of the Balkan countries along the Black Sea. Winters can be cold and snowy, especially in the Balkan Mountains, and summers can be very hot.
With summers as sultry as those on the Mediterranean shores, Bulgaria is a hot spot in the summertime, which means finding Bulgaria cheap flights may not be easy. The same goes for the holiday season and the early winter months, when skiers and winter sports enthusiasts are booking cheap flights to Bulgaria to take advantage of the popular ski resorts of the Balkan Mountains.
The best time to find cheap flights to Bulgaria is during the spring or fall, when the sun comes back out or when the summer begins to cool down. If you’re set on the Bulgarian seashore, consider booking Bulgaria cheap flights to the coast in the off-season, when normal rates are discounted due to the colder and stormier time of year.
Planes, trains, and automobiles: They’re all available and commonly used by locals and visitors alike when it comes to travel in Bulgaria. If you’re ready to hit the ground running once your cheap flight to Bulgaria touches down, trams, trolleys, and well-connected bus systems are prevalent in all of Bulgaria’s major cities. Taxis are readily available as well, though the most favored form of transport by Bulgaria’s local population is taking advantage of the reliable bus systems which also run to Bulgaria’s major airports.
