In Bulgaria, there is nothing to move within the country and visit . There are many trains ( including night trains that we liked ), but also a very good bus network . The bus is much faster than the train, there is often (to Sofia -Plovdiv is one every hour or half hour throughout the day ) , and they are often comfortable . For short trips , prefer this mode of transport for longer (eg Sofia -Burgas as we did ), the sleeper train is a good solution since no more expensive than the bus and saving a night hotel . Note that there are also domestic flights to most major Bulgarian cities , for example by linking Sofia to Varna shortly . In practice do not take it , it’s expensive , it pollutes a lot and we see nothing of the country.
As regards public transport in Sofia there also has everything you need : buses, trams and trolleys . See here: public transport .
Bulgaria at leisure is like in France, less , of course. A non – exhaustive list of what you can do : restaurant, cinema, bars , nightclubs , bowling, karting , paintball or pool. Sometimes , it has great surprises , as in our fourth week: we thought going into a pool while there is more classic, and we arrive in the middle of a high class brand new center with hammam , sauna, relaxation room, massages or other gym.
Second, many students and especially French students encountered . In this regard , we note a rather mythical place in Sofia Studentski grad , literally ” the city of the students.” A city within a city, consisting of 60 000 with a common point : all students. Suffice to say that every night deserves a night … See this post talking Studentski grad , a mecca of fun and typical or atypical events in Bulgaria.

But, of course , you can occupy your time with something else , such as … Trips , obviously. Bulgaria abounds in unusual places , such as corners or cities not to be missed .
It will serve me very difficult to make a summary of what you should see in Bulgaria, because even I could not do what I wanted to do .
