Rail Tours in Bulgaria

It seems inexplicable that Bulgaria has, until recently, largely been overlooked as a destination for the discerning traveller. The list of reasons to visit offered by this exotic and beautiful country on the western edge of the Black Sea is compelling. A history spanning 2,500 years has bestowed a legacy of ancient ruins, magnificent religious buildings and stunning art and architecture upon the country. A warm and hospitable climate, meanwhile, ensures that the emerging Black Sea coastal resorts can boast beaches, attractions, activities and facilities that easily hold their own with better-known European holiday destinations. Bulgaria's interior landscapes are pristine and unspoilt; no fewer than seven mountain ranges, surrounded by forests, meadows, lakes and valleys offered unparalleled opportunities for outdoor recreation, wildlife spotting and bird watching. Bulgaria's towns and cities are as diverse and as captivating as its landscapes and providing a wealth of attractions, activities and experiences sure to delight every visitor, they are just as rewarding and enjoyable to explore.
