Archaeology and History Tours and Activities in Bulgaria

Bulgaria is widely known as a destination for cheap, all inclusive holidays. Sunny, sandy beaches attract tourists in the summer, while snow covered mountains attract tourists in the winter. Travel in Bulgaria is indeed very reasonable, but there is so much more than seaside and ski resorts. Bulgaria has a fascinating past, shaped by the Thracians, ancient Greeks and Romans, the Slavs, the Ottomans, to name a few, all having left their mark over the centuries. Travel away from the tourist traps and explore this complex and under-rated past along with a rich contemporary cultural heritage. Why Visit Bulgaria >>
