It's deservedly renowned for its ski resorts and picturesque Black Sea beaches, but on some of our classic tours in Bulgaria you can discover so much more. Travel through untouched mountains and forests, past traditional villages and ancient monasteries. Sofia, the cosmopolitan capital, reveals Ottoman mosques and Red Army monuments, medieval churches, sacred icons and the magnificent Alexander Nevsky Cathedral. Visit the renowned monastery of Rila, set in a forested valley and first founded in 927 AD. And our Bulgaria tours also visit the awesome Roman amphitheatres in Bulgaria's charming second city, Plovdiv; the Old Town's winding cobbled streets are a joy.
