t your south of Spain styled break at non-south-of-Spain prices. Bulgaria’s Black Sea resorts offer quite the bargain if you are looking for an affordable European beach break. If it is a city break that you prefer, capital city Sofia is your destination. Great food and drink and comfortable accommodation options – all yours for under INR 2,000 a day. The second oldest city in Europe, Sofia is dotted with museums and galleries. You can do the museum run starting with the likes of the Museum of Socialist Art and the National Literature Museum. Despite shooting up the holiday destination charts, Sofia is still a good deal – specially many places outside of the city which are still untouched by tourists. The further east you go, the cheaper your holiday gets.
. If you want the sun and the sea without breaking the bank, head to Nesebar which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site a few hours to the south of Varna. This is a perfect spot to begin your budget exploration of Bulgaria’s Black Sea coast. Though a lot of Nesebar’s old city of Messembria has toppled into the ocean, there are still many ancient churches that you can check out as you walk the cobbled lanes. Do remember to buy some locally manufactured lace to take back as a souvenir.
