Car rental in Bulgaria is popular among tourists and is available at all airports and cities. All the major car hire companies Top Rent A Car Hertz, Avis, Alamo, Budget Dollar, National Sixt, Thrifty Europcar all have offices in Bulgaria. So if you are arriving at Burgas Airport or Varna Airport a good place to start your road trip is the Bulgarian Black Sea Coast. From Burgas, you can head up North, on the spectacular coastal road towards Varna. You’ll pass through Bulgaria’s main seaside resorts on the way including the famous Sunny Beach and further north of Varna Golden Sands Beach.
Varna, Bulgaria’s biggest port, is located at the place where the Balkans meet the Black Sea, a spectacular land of mountain and water. Further up North, the Royal Castle in Balchik. It was formerly the royal castle of the Kings of Romania when this region belonged to Bulgaria’s Northern neighbor, It is worth visiting, not only because of its interesting architecture and fantastic views, but also because of the huge botanical garden on the premises.
Heading west, we continue our trip, passing by the ancient Thracian tomb in Shvetari, a kind of mini “Valley of the Kings” of Bulgaria. Nearby, the ancient sculpture of a horseman throwing a spear towards a lion is another important attraction of Bulgaria (also included in the UNESCO World Heritage). Travelling through the heart of the country, you’ll discover old villages and towns, like Stara Zagora, that still display traditional Bulgarian architecture. The Ancient amphitheater of Plovdiv (one of Bulgaria’s biggest cities) is thought to be one of the oldest in the world.
Sofia, the capital city of Bulgaria, is one of the main stops on our trip. The city is Bulgaria’s biggest and most developed urban area, numerous monuments and museums, bars and clubs, parks and leisure areas being located here. The ancient church of Serdica, recently renovated and made more tourist-friendly, is the city’s main attraction. The road on Vitosha Mountain, one of the highest peaks in Bulgaria, watching over the capital, is incredibly fun to drive on, while the view over the city, from above, is awesome.
Our tour of Bulgaria ends in the South-western part of the country, in the Pirin National Park, probably the most known of Bulgaria’s natural wonders. A new motorway was recently opened between Sofia and Blagoevgrad, the main city in the region. You could set up HQ here and do some hiking on the numerous trails that crisscross the mountains or just take the car for a spectacular drive on the road towards Bansko, Bulgaria’s main ski resort. Aside from the great restaurants, in Bansko you’ll find a gondola that will take you on the plateau, at an altitude of 2500 meters, for some views to remember for a lifetime. Great way to end an awesome trip.
