- Low season:Spring, when temperatures are mild and dry and autumn, which tends to be wet.

Essentials in Bulgaria
Sofia: There is a lot to see and do here in Sofia, Bulgaria's capital and largest city. For history, stop by the Archaeological Museum to examine the Thracian artefacts. For some fresh air, Yuzhen Park's wilderness won't disappoint. The Boyana Church's impressive murals will leave you spell-bound.
Black Sea: For many spending in their holidays in this beautiful country, there is no other place to do it than on the Black Sea coast. The resorts here rival those you can find in Spain and Greece. Lay you towel out on a beach between Sozopol's sandy bays or take in the lake-scene at Burgas Lakes.
Rila Monastery: Get yourself a car hire Bulgaria and take a road trip to visit Bulgaria's largest and most highly regarded monastery for its colourful frescoes. It's a sight to see and the surrounding Rila Mountains make it all the more so. If you visit in low season, it's possible to stay overnight in the monastery.
