You’ll have plenty of adventures to choose from regardless of the season thanks to the wonderful range of mountains throughout the west of the country. One popular area is the Strandja Mountains where you'll be greeted with stunning scenery. It's a supersized national park, packed with steep limestone cliffs, ancient forests and winding rivers are home to a brilliant variety of animals, including golden eagles, gheckos, wildcats and there's a full network of natural springs and caves to discover too. If you're interested in discovering history, then you can explore the ancient Thracian and Roman ruins.
Step back in time at St Methodius Cathedral and St Cyril
St Methodius and St Cyril were scholars, brothers and monks who developed the Cyrillic alphabet. In Bourgas, the cathedral named after them was built in 1926 to glorify their hard work and it's located in the same area as the ruined ancient city of Veliki Preslav, which means you can explore that too. If you would like more cultural fixes, then take a trip to Varna and you have got some of the cultural heavyweights of Bulgaria. The best in the complex is the Roman baths, which date back to the second century. A wonderful place to discover history and culture.
