Bulgaria top attraction: history & culture

Bulgaria top attraction: history & culture

As it was founded in 681, it’s safe to say that Bulgaria delivers a large dose of architectural, artistic and cultural heritage to discover. 

  • Dominating the skyline in Veliko Tarnovo, Tsarevets Fortress is the former residence of medieval tsars. The royal palace, houses, churches and walls shine with colour during the night-time sound and light show. 
  • The 3rd-century Thracian Tomb of Sveshtari was only discovered in 1982. The UNESCO-listed site is located in the Sboranovo Historical and Archaeological Reserve. 
  • Take a romantic stroll around ancient Sozopol, which is the oldest settlement on the Black Sea coast. Cobbled streets weave around wooden houses on the edge of a narrow peninsula and two stunning beaches. 
  • Plovdiv’s Roman Theatre of Philippopolis was once the home of hunting and gladiator games. Now, the ancient structure fits right into modern life as a hub of opera, music and drama performances. 
  • On a 100-metre high cliff near the village of Madara, a carving of a knight standing victoriously over a lion creates a dramatic sight. It’s located in the Madara Archaeological Reserve, which also features an eco-trail, caves and chapels.

  • On a backdrop of misty mountains, Rila Monastery is Bulgaria’s top historical and spiritual landmark. Discover grand archways, colourful frescoes and religious art within the stone walls. 
  • It’s always a good time for free wine tasting. Winery Messembria is nestled in the Old Town of Nessebar, with an authentic bar serving up some of the country’s best drops. 
  • Walk the romantic cobblestone streets to museum-hop in Plovdiv’s atmospheric Old Town. It’s one of the oldest living cities in the world and features the Ancient Theatre and the Roman Stadium.  
  • Lose yourself within a swirl of colourful wings at the Butterfly House in Varna. Depending on the season, you might get the chance to see the beautiful residents emerging from cocoons. 
  • With seven glacial lakes, dramatic mountains and abundant wildlife, Rila National Park is a hiker’s paradise. If you love climbing, it’s home to the country’s highest peak, Musala. 
  • Let the kids loose on the climbing walls, playgrounds and interactive exhibits at Muzeiko in Sofia. The science and technology museum offers fun education in astronomy, geology, palaeontology and more. 
  • The quaint village of Arbanasi is home to Chiesa della Nativita, otherwise known as the Church of the Nativity of Christ. One of the oldest sections dates back to 1597 and you’ll find elaborate frescoes inside. 
  • Delve underground into the natural marvel of Devetashka Cave. Stretching for two kilometres, it’s a wonderland of stalactites, miniature waterfalls and majestic rock arches. 
  • Travel back in time to the Communist era with a visit to the Red Flat in Sofia. You’ll experience a slice of everyday life during the Cold War.
