Bulgaria with children and without: where it is better? The review of the Bulgarian resorts

Bulgaria so close from us that many, being going to foreign resorts, go in fine far at once, and it as though “fly by“. And very in vain: in Bulgaria there is everything that is necessary - both the sea, and mountains, and interesting excursions for adults, and entertainments for children.

the Former country of a socialist camp, in 2007 Bulgaria was a part of the European Union, but not up to the end: the currency still local - Leva and to drive to the country according to the Schengen visa became possible only since the beginning of 2012. With the Bulgarian visa it is impossible to get to a zone of Schengen - some members of the EU object to the final entry of the country into the European Union, accusing Bulgaria and Romania of inability to control the borders. Nevertheless, in that, as for tourism and service, Bulgarians very much try to follow the European standards - and at them it turns out. The prices at the same time - so long! - not so European for this reason the flow of tourists grows every year. Our compatriots are attracted also by lack of a language barrier.

Resorts in Bulgaria work with

all the year round. Length of the Black Sea coast - 378 kilometers - and almost all are covered by wonderful is white - golden sand. And resorts. Let`s begin the review with the South and we will move on the North.


Sozopol - the big city on the southern coast: small and big shops, cafe on rocks by the sea where it is possible to stay eternity, souvenir disorders, speeches of visiting singers that was where to descend in the evening - generally, it is possible to conduct the real resort life here. Only beaches are small therefore new hotels are under construction in a distance from the city.


Some buy by

of apartments on the coast at once. Let`s tell, the French actress and model Laetitia Kasta bought the apartment in Sozopole who conquered it while she acted in the movie nearby, on Saint Anastasia`s island. And in general Russians are the main buyers of the Bulgarian real estate at the sea. What is unsurprising: the prices - the lowest of all European Union countries. The most quick-selling goods - apartments at the price from 40 to 60 thousand euros - such transactions are made the last 2 years much. There is more expensive housing, but behind it the Russian buyers go, probably, further, to the Mediterranean Sea.

not to think of whether there will be a place on the beach, should consider hotels near Sozopol.

Hotel of ARKUTINO RESORT 4 * - the cozy and very silent hotel mislaid in dunes - for fans of a privacy, rest and poorly populated beaches. The hotel is ideal for families with kids - environmentally friendly products from subsidiary farm of which owners of hotel very much are proud (and it is fair), fresh air, lack of noise, night discos and crowds of vacationers. Anything, except the wood, a strip of dunes low, overgrown with a grass, and the sea. The only trifle becoming important when on hands the small child - the hotel costs on a hillock therefore it is necessary to climb steps often. And to the sea it is necessary to go on a wooden flooring through dunes. Very romantically and poetically, but with a carriage, we will tell directly, not really conveniently. But all this small cavils, actually, hotel very pleasant and silent.
