Cultural Tourism in Bulgaria

Bulgaria is rich in cultural and archaeological sights and offers opportunities for cultural tourism all over its territory. Each region in Bulgaria has unique culture and traditions. There are many interesting places to visit and the best way to do this is to book cultural tours in Bulgaria offered by Tour operators and Travel Agencies.



Cultural tourism in Bulgaria corresponds to the world trend – the heritage to become known and used through cultural tourism, as a powerful resource for stable social development. This trend is of present interest especially for Bulgaria, as 19 projects under the aegis of the European Union’s PHARE Program for "Development of cultural tourism in Bulgaria" are implemented during this year.

Rural & Eco Tourism        MORE INFORMATION              НА БЪЛГАРСКИ ЕЗИК

Rural & Eco Tourism in BulgariaThe development of rural tourism in Bulgaria has been concentrated in a few areas of the country, mainly located at natural waters, around thermal springs and in the mountains. The “traditional” rural tourism in Bulgaria was somehow "lost" in the meantime. In Bulgaria at the moment, foreign tourists are mostly interested in two types of rural tourism: first, in accommodation in the vicinity of popular tourist destinations (being motivated by the much lower prices), second, in folklore programmes.
The development of all the other types of rural tourism (including active nature holidays or participation in farm activities) is still in an early stage.

Having chosen the village entertainment, a tourist can get involved in agricultural activities, rides with horses and carts, craftsmen’s activities like wood processing, carving, textile, ceramics, weaving, blacksmith activities, etc. If you are willing, you can take part in cuisine courses or wine tasting, you can study Bulgarian folklore or watch the local family and religious celebrations.

The accommodation is usually in the hosts’ own house. Guests can have their meals on the table together with the hosts. Traditional local meals are served, along with ecologically clean natural Bulgarian food and drinks. The tourists can take part in the preparation of the food, if they want to.
