Visitng Belogradchik in the winter with the comfortable Opel Vectra
Few weeks ago we visited the town of Belogradchik in the north-west part of Bulgaria in the comfort of an Opel Vectra C which happened to be a great cruiser for short and not so short distances.
Belogradchik is mostly famous with its rocks which attract a lot of visitors each year from all over the world. For me this was probably the fifth visit of this town. Again, we enjoyed the beautiful weather even it was December, it was sunny and clear. Beautiful views of the famous Belogradchik rocks were still the main attraction from different locations in the town.
Here are just some of the views we’ve captured during our visit:
You can see that Belogradchik is worth visiting in any season and I am sure anyone would appreciate the beautiful views there. There are plenty of hotels and guest houses in the area so you can easily find an accommodation in the area for less than $50 per night. Spa hotel is also present in the very center of the city.

Did you know that Plovdiv, Bulgaria is the oldest inhabited city in all Europe? No? Me neither. Let’s take a look at Plovdiv and its yearly street fest Kapana.
Similar to Rome, Plovdiv sits on seven hills, however the Bulgarian city is far more ancient. Thracian people founded the city in 4000 B.C. while Rome was founded in 753 BC. You didn’t expect that now, did you! Very old and very beautiful, Plovdiv was home to different civilizations over the course of thousands of years and is still inhabited. It’s the second largest city in Bulgaria and an important commercial center.

However, today I’d like to tell you about my experience in modern Plovdiv. Their yearly fest Kapana, named after the district it occupies, has recently gained media popularity. I decided to make a one-day trip there to see what the fuss is all about.
Turns out, Kapana fest is not your typical Bulgarian fest with lots of food and drinks and little else. This is actually an art fest. Kapana is a a whole district near the center of the city which is engulfed by the street fest. There are lots of street merchants selling curious goods and little cafes with European atmosphere.
What I found most curious were people dancing on the street over the sounds of music. There were authentic Bulgarian spices, herbs and honey, also drinks and craft beer. The purpose of the event is to bring festive atmosphere and allow people to display their art and goods.
Where to stay if you want to visit Kapana fest
This hotel is in the heart of the old city of Plovdiv. Luxurious and comfortable, the hotel is a great pick location-wise. Prices are decent, they charge ~50 EUR per room.
Imperial is a lovely hotel with a great SPA center not far from downtown Plovdiv and all landmarks. The hotel is exquisite and the SPA is a dream. Their prices are a little steep though – around 80 EUR and more per room. However, you do get value for your money here.
3. Hotel Odeon
Odeon is in the very heart of Plovdiv, right in the city center. The old town is also walking distance. This is a family hotel, so it offers more budget-friendly options. That does not mean it’s cheap-looking though. The rooms are nicely furnished and clean with everything you need. There’s also a restaurant onsite.
Ostrova is a hotel complex in the Western district of Plovdiv, far from the noise of the city. The complex features outside pool, spa center and nicely furnished rooms. Prices are reasonable – ~46 EUR per room.
Aqualand is a hotel with a huge water park. It’s far from the city center, in the Eastern district. The best thing about this hotel are the wonderful water attractions and pools and the luxurious rooms. All this comes at the lovely price of ~40 EUR per room. Now that’s a deal!
