Old yet modern – get to know Borovets, Bulgaria

The oldest winter resort in Bulgaria is well prepared for the challenges of the upcoming season. No time was wasted during the summer and now to make the Borovets ski map up to the standards of a modern recreational zone for the 2018-19 campaign. A few weeks before the official kick-off one particularly good news came from Rila Mountain. One new 6-seater lift was installed to make the connection between the main resort and the group of pistes called Martinovi Baraki – you can watch those runs on Borovets webcam images. The new facility replaces the old 4-seater which was obsolete and didn’t provide the desired capacity.

The renovation process is not destined to stop there. About 85 percent of the present lifts and drags in Borovets, Bulgaria are in the plans for replacement and modernization. The most traditional winter resort failed to catch up with the needs of modern times at the turn of the centuries. In the 10s of the 21st century, anyway, significant efforts to turn the place around were made for a better environment, a higher level of service and more satisfying user experience concerning the Borovets ski map.

And the winter vacation is still among the most budget-friendly choices in Europe.

But the development of the area never stopped in the past decade. So, it seems to respond successfully to the call.

It’s not a massive surge of the expense – the cost goes up from 55 to 58 BGN, which is still less than 30 British Pounds.

From the Royal Wedding to the Royal Holidays in Bulgaria

Have you been fed up with the ongoing buzz surrounding the Royal wedding? Well, while some people couldn’t allow themselves to miss a blink of the ceremony of the marriage between Prince Harry and Meghan Markle, others felt bored to hear and read about every detail of this event. But what is common for both kind of people and probably for everyone in the world is what it feels like to live like a prince or a princess. It is obtainable to be treated the way the kings and queens are treated at some of the most luxurious places in the world. And there also some surprising destinations on the map that can be in use for that matter – for example, in Bulgaria Nessebar represents such a place.


A service for nobles with a price for a bus drivers


You might think that we are going too far with this (No disrespect to the bus drivers, we can assure you about that). And you’ll be right to some extent – the holidays to Nessebar will lead you to a small town on the Black Sea, not to some traditional royal residence. But the level of service provided by the highest category of accommodation there will really make you feel special. Because of this, the hotels in Nessebar of the 5-star luxury are in high demand and you have to book well up-front. If you wish to see if there is an availability for your preferred dates, check the deals on the list of Balkan Holidays -the most reliable company for tourist services in the region.


Can you believe that the accommodation of the highest category might cost as low as 500 GBP per person for a whole week? Even a bus driver or a shop assistant can afford that – once again, no disrespect to the mentioned types of occupation or to any type. We mention it just because these jobs definitely do not fit a bit into the royal cliché. But with Nessebar, Bulgaria holidays every working class individual is present the opportunity to feel what it is like to be a person of noble origins. And you will not be treated as a second-hand guy even if the status obtained by you in the local society of livelihood might not be of the highest ranks.


Have a fun like a king


Really, you CAN do that. Hiring a boat for you and your friends is a possibility. A pricy one actually, but the daily cruises into the sea are available all summer long in the resorts of Bulgaria – Nessebar is no exception to the rule so in this case, such a delight will not cost that much. Speaking of kings and queens – there is a castle there! Well, this one was a bit exaggerated since there are remains of a Medieval fortress in the Old town. Have in mind that holidays to Nessebar are picked most of the cases for this extra experience – the ancient section makes it to the list of UNESCO World Heritage. And the access to it is granted to everyone – not only to royal celebrities.


Where to travel in 2018?

Assuming that the expense of the French Riviera or Ibiza brings down the budget, our advice is to head east. Traveling to the southeastern edge of Europe is linked mostly with Greece or Turkey (which is technically in Asia for the greatest part of its coastline) but the other options for beach holidays on Balkans shouldn’t be overshadowed. The eastern and the western shores of the peninsula might not sum up to a quarter of the combined length of southern Greek resorts but are nonetheless exciting. The Black Sea charms the tourists by its specific charisma on the one side and on the other, the Adriatic Sea has what it takes for a beautiful summer vacation.


Feel like a king choosing Croatia beach holidays

Croatia - the Game of Thrones destination


We mean it literally. Did you know that the magnificent town of Dubrovnik has been the actual venue where the footage of the Game of Thrones’ King’s Landing took place? Being a follower of the highly acclaimed TV show you are probably aware of that fact but it’s not Cirsey waiting for you there in the real world. The ancient town is well preserved and reasonably lists in the UNESCO World Heritage.


Besides the rich history and architecture to be seen and touched there is another obvious logic to book Dubrovnik – the Adriatic Sea. One week in the King’s Landing area might cost less than 300 GBP per person in case of early reservation via Balkan Holidays. Croatia beach holidays allure with the picturesque presence and warm water. The other famous city on the sea is Split – the second largest in the country. Among the list of resorts deserving to be booked and cherished Pula, Bol, Hvar, and Makarska are those you shouldn’t miss.


Moving south on the Adriatic coast, the traveler will reach the beautiful and gorgeous small country of Montenegro. Going north of Croatian shore comes Italy. Wrong! Slovenia beach holidays are rarely considered to even exist as an option but the dazzling Portoroz resort proves that this is the reality. The country is largely linked with skiing but with 50 km of coastline, it’s also a part of the Adriatic family. And a piece of that charm is present there. Slovenia beach resorts are few but deserve to be visited.
