A Bulgária, situada no sudeste da Europa e na parte leste da península dos Balcãs, tem mais de 13 séculos de história e inúmeras opções para os amantes do turismo de praia, natureza e cultura. Prepare-se para descobrir este país na primeira pessoa e fique alojado num dos melhores hotéis da Bulgária a preços incríveis.
Este país eslavo, que faz a ponte entre o Oriente e o Ocidente, viveu a sua época de maior apogeu entre os séculos XII e XIV. Foi nessa altura que chegou a dominar grande parte do sul da Europa, antes de ser uma região do império turco. Já no século XX, a presença do comunismo durante quatro longas décadas fez desta terra um lugar praticamente desconhecido para os viajantes ocidentais. Felizmente, a queda da Cortina de Ferro e sobretudo a entrada da Bulgária na União Europeia em 2007 ajudaram a descobrir um destino turístico de primeira categoria.
A Bulgária tem tudo: ruínas da época romana e trácia, igrejas ortodoxas, 160 mosteiros que contribuíram para perpetuar as tradições e os símbolos nacionais, magníficas praias no Mar Negro — onde se encontra o hotel Iberostar Sunny Beach Resort —, a autenticidade da cozinha búlgara… Inclusive, este país pode gabar-se de ser o berço do alfabeto cirílico, criado no século IX.
Se a isso juntarmos as agradáveis temperaturas do Mar Negro, que chegam aos 24 °C no verão, compreendemos por que motivo a Bulgária é um daqueles países que deve ser visitado pelo menos uma vez na vida.
One of the main tourist destinations in Bulgaria is the Black Sea area and, specifically, Slanchev Bryag (what means the Sunny Coast), which many do not hesitate to compare to Ibiza. Located near Nessebar or Nesebar - a city near the hotel in Bulgaria of Iberostar -, it is a wonderful bay with a half-moon shape and close to the attractive town of Burgas.
Its 10 km (6.2 miles) of beaches are the main attractions of Nesebar, this city also has many other attractions. One of them is its old town, which has dozens of churches dating mainly from the 14th century. Among the most notable, we should refer to those of the Christ Pantocrator, Saint Sophia, Saint John the Baptist, Saint Paraskevi and the Holy Archangels Michael and Gabriel, as well as the Basilica of the Holy Mother of God Eleusa, originally from the late 5th century.
Another place that is worth discovering is the aforementioned Burgas, the second most important coastal town on the Black Sea. Despite being a modern city, it still preserves interesting buildings from the 19th century. In addition, its streets are dotted with pleasant gardens and green areas. One of its main attractions is the Sea Garden, with a casino built in 1938 and a striking bridge. In the surroundings, it is advisable to visit the protected area of Poda, a natural area with beautiful lakes.
Take the most of your holidays in Bulgaria visiting the national capital, Sofia. Located on a plateau at 500 m (1,804 feet) above sea level, it is home to some of the most spectacular monuments and buildings in the country, such as the public mineral baths, the Palace of Justice, the Ivan Vazov National Theatre, the Bulgarian Academy of Science and the Boyana church, declared a World Heritage site by UNESCO in 1979.
From Sofia, you can take a bus that, after a journey of 3 hours, will take you to the Rila monastery. This construction, perched on a mountain of more than 1,100 m (3,600 feet) high, exhibits an original bell tower, a building that serves as a residence for monks and a church.
Do not miss the Veliko Tárnao, the cultural centre of northern Bulgaria, located 250 km (155 miles) from Sofia.
Other places you must visit, and which are also UNESCO sites, are the Thracian tomb of Kazanlak, located in the town of the same name, crafted in Adobe during the third or fourth centuries BC, the Thracian tomb of Svechtari, from the third century BC and discovered in 1982, the rock churches of Ivanovo, located 16 km (10 miles) from the city of Ruse; the Madara Horseman, an early medieval relief carved into the rock, east of the village of Sumen, the city of Nesebar, on the Bulgarian coast, the Natural Reserve of Srebarna and the Pirin National Park. The mountains here give rise to the town of Bansko, famous for its ski slopes.
If all you ask for on your holidays in Bulgaria is relaxation, you will be sure to enjoy yourself at some of the best beaches of the Black sea in Varna and its surroundings. This was an old summer resort for many visitors from the former Soviet Union, and is a equipped with all the amenities and services you may need.
Just 30 km (18.6 miles) from Varna, is the town of Albena. It owes its fame to its long beach of fine sand, which is about 5 km (3.1 miles) long and up to 150 m (492 feet) wide. By the way: the Varna airport is just 90 km from the Iberostar Sunny Beach Resort.
Bulgaria is also a country with intense nightlife. This is especially abundant in large cities, as well as in some destinations on the Black Sea Coast, such as Burgas or Nesebar. Both have beautiful beaches, an atmosphere that invites you to let your hair down and the chance to rent out boats to travel along the coast.
Moreover, this country is not only perfect for the hot months. If your trip to Bulgaria takes place in the colder months, you can practice winter sports in the mountain of Vitosha, next to Sofia. However, the most important ski resort is Borovets, from where you will enjoy incomparable views over Bila, the roof of the Balkans.
Of course, you can't fail to try the exquisite Bulgarian food, reminiscent of Greek, Turkish and Arabic cuisine. Yogurts, soups and dishes centred on chicken and pork, and don’t forget to try the excellent pastries.
The Iberostar Sunny Beach Resort is in one of the most touristic places in Bulgaria. There you will find a hotel with a swimming pool and renovated rooms with sea views, Turkish baths, tennis courts and just 80 m (262 feet) from the beach.
