Bulgaria holidays by Cox & Kings 

Situated on the eastern edge of Europe, Bulgaria is a land of mountains, forests, ancient ruins, and numerous churches, cathedrals and monasteries housing superb works of religious art.

The Balkan mountains stretch across the middle of the country providing beautiful and rugged scenery, while the Black Sea coast on the eastern border offers mile upon mile of long, sandy beaches.

Dotted across the country are many ancient towns and cities with Unesco-listed attractions.
