Bulgaria provides a feast of tempting travel choices depending on your holiday preferences and  time of year. In summer, the beach resorts of the Black Sea fill with sun-seeking holidaymakers. Mile upon mile of Blue Flag beaches provide hours of fun between May and October, when the sunshine stretches throughout the day. Popular resorts in the south include the cheap and cheerful party town of Sunny Beach Resort, as well as Nessebar, Elenite and Pomorie. Further north you'll find holiday hotspots such as Golden Sands and Varna.

Way out west is the capital of Sofia. Here, churches, art galleries, museums and architectural beauties can be found at the foot of Mount Vitosha, amid traditional and modern restaurants, cosy cafés and a range of good-value hotels.

The mountains of Bulgaria are another big draw for visitors here, and not just when the snow falls in winter. Sure, there's a great ski scene in Bulgaria: Bansko, Borovets,and Pamporovo form something of a ski triangle in the south-western corner of the country. Yet visitors flock to the nation's wooded peaks year round to try the cycling and hiking trails, or to have a go at something a little more extreme, such as caving or rock climbing.

Whatever draws you to Bulgaria, the cost of breaks here is certain to be another winning factor. Holidays in Bulgaria are still among the cheapest in Europe, whether you're here for sun, ski or city. Flights to Bulgaria, and hotels and car hire in the country, are also inexpensive. Compare prices on Bulgaria car rental today when you use the TravelSupermarket search tool.
