Girls in Bulgaria – Balkans nature beauty

Girls in Bulgaria – Balkans nature beauty

Bulgaria is popular with its beautiful girls and nice shopping malls (not only in Sofia)

Bulgarian girls are beautiful

Bulgaria is a beautiful country and so are Bulgarian girls and women. The natural beauty of Bulgarian ladies is popular worldwide and that is no surprise to anyone in the region.

Girls in Sofia

If you take a quick walk at any of the popular Sofia shopping malls you will see hundreds of good looking Bulgarian girls. Well, some of them may look a bit strange due to questionable outfit or facial tuning but most of the women around there are naturally pretty. Even those with cheap clothing and less make up are attractive in its own way. And don’t get me wrong, we are not promoting Bulgarian beauty and their girls in general but it is just worth mentioning facts that are not so well known in all parts of the world.

 

Here are my top 5 reasons to visit Bulgaria:

  • Unbelievable variety of nature beauty – extremely rich flora and fauna
  • Cheap and delicious food
  • Cheap goods
  • Beautiful girls
  • Mixed architecture – both modern and socialism like

You may find girls in Sofia particularly young and beautiful because of the fact that most of the big Bulgarian universities are located here. There are literally tens of thousands of student girls that moved to Sofia to get their higher education. Of course going to a bar in Sofia will definitely give you the opportunity to meet fine looking and attractive Bulgarian ladies which are also educated (they came here to study after all).

Girls at the Bulgarian seaside

If you travel in Bulgaria you should definitely check their seaside at the eastern part of the country where the Black sea is located. At the nice sandy beaches there you can definitely meet a lot of beautiful Bulgarian girls, especially if you go to destinations like Sunny beach, Sozopol, Varna or Burgas.

Ladies in Plovdiv

Plovidv girls are well known for their beauty. The ancient Tracian city is host for many college students not only from Bulgaria. Of course beautiful girls can be seen in any of the three Plovdiv malls as well as at the city clubs at the center.

Girls in Bansko

Bansko is the most popular winter resort in Bulgaria. There are many hotels, bars and restaurants there and in the Razlog area. It is pretty nice to see beautiful mountain views over there but also the pretty Bulgarian girls are a big driver for visiting this winter resort.

 

BANSKO, BULGARIA – NOT ONLY A WINTER DESTINATION

 

Bulgaria is a beautiful country that you should definitely visit for so many reasons. Meeting beautiful girls there is one of them but please make sure to keep your manners, Bulgaria is a EU members and rude attitude and disrespectful behavior are not tolerated, just like it should be.

The bus does not have a separate luggage compartment, so you have to carry the luggage on the bus with you.

Important! Make sure to ask the driver if the bus stops at the airport, as some of them don’t! The buses that run to the airport from Bergamo usually have a picture of a plane or have the word Aeroporto displayed on the front of the bus.

Driving from Vidin to Craiova by European route E79

Driving from Vidin to Craiova by European route E79

One day drive from Vidin, Bulgaria to Craiova, Romania by E79

Pictures from the Craiova food festival

 

We visited Craiova last weekend and to see their food festival. We arrived there by car from Northern Bulgaria so we had to cross the Danube bridge connecting Bulgarian city Vidin and Romanian town Calafat.

 

 

The road from Vidin (or Sofia – the capital) to Craiova is the European route E79, part of the international E-road network. The whole route begins in Hungary and ends in Greece, so it connects the capital Sofia with the north-western part of the country and with Romania.

The Bulgarian part of E79 from Sofia to Vidin is not a very comfortable drive and it could take you 3.5 – 4 hours on average. There is often road maintenance (currently the part between Vratsa and Montana is being worked on). It’s not unusual to get stuck in traffic caused by lots of heavyweight trucks or road accidents.

The Bulgarian part of E79, highlighted

The drive from Vidin to Craiova is around 1 hour 30 minutes if you don’t get stuck in traffic delays on the border after the bridge. The distance is around 90 km driving on country roads, no highway. The state of the road is good, although there are renovations ongoing currently in the part closest to the border.

Our trip took longer than that as we got stuck in a delay on the border. There was a queue of cars and TIR trucks and we waited more than an hour to cross the border.

How to make your trip easier:

  • make sure to schedule your trip to avoid lunchtime – the queues are big and there are delays
  • choosing early morning time is best and will give you more time to explore and return home early
  • have your ID card or passport ready along with your car license and registration
  • do not bring too much luggage if not needed – they will check it which will delay you and other passengers
  • do not carry any meat or byproducts – they are forbidden

What we saw in Craiova

Craiova is a beautiful city with classic European architecture. The Hungarian influence is noticeable in the buildings and streets, as in most of Romania. There are lots of places to see if you have more time to look around. We had only a couple of hours but I managed to take some amazing pictures as shown in my gallery below.

Nice sandy beaches in Castelldefels, Spain

Nice sandy beaches in Castelldefels, Spain

5 days stay in the sunny and reasonably crowded Castelldefels, Spain

 

Hey all. Today, I will share some of my impressions from our trip to Castelldefels, Spain last summer (or should I say by the end of the summer since we went in the late September). It was kind of a short trip with just 5 nights in this beautiful country but it was definitely worth spending some time in Catalonia region.

Here are the things we like most in Castelldefels:

  • Enormous sandy beach
  • Nice views 
  • Close to Barcelona

What we didn’t like in Castelldefels

  • Parking – parking on the street will cost you in central locations around town
  • It is kind of expensive
  • Not too much to do – entertainment options are limited

Castelldefels

Initially we wanted to visit Barcelona and probably that is the main reason to pick Castelldefels for our stay – it is some 20 km from Barcelona, so it was easy to travel back and forth during the day with our rental car. This small town is famous for its extremely long beach (over 5 km) and also a vacation place for many famous people and some celebrities.

The hotel

Our 5-night stay was pleasant enough thanks to our kind hosts from SG Marina 54 Apartments. The hotel is comfortably located in the middle of Castelldefels and just 5 minutes walk from the nice sandy beach.  SG Marina 54 Apartments offers studios and apartments on good prices but I can’t confirm if it is the same case in the peak season. Our studio was clean and roomy enough so no complaints whatsoever.

Barcelona

Since Barcelona was pretty close, we didn’t miss a chance to visit it. There’s so much to say about this city that I will dedicate a series of posts where I will share detailed info and impressions after our trips in the Catalonia’s capital city. Trips from Castelldefels usually took about 30-40 minutes (sometimes longer due to the heavy traffic) by car. It was a relatively new Fiat Panda which did a good job in carrying us around without any big expenses for fuel/maintenance.
