Bucharest, Romania -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/04/2013 -- Bulgaria, the fourteenth-largest country in Europe, is slowly becoming one of the most preferred tourist destinations in the world.
For the past four years, individuals interested in sightseeing in Bulgaria and Romania have consulted the experts of one tour company, Balkan Trails. The Balkan Trails tours are designed by Vlad and Zoe Trestian, natives of Bulgaria and Romania, and led by licensed, knowledgeable guides from the company’s team. The company offers guided day trips and multiple-day visits that spotlight interesting components, such as nature, history, art, cuisine, and the locals, of both countries.
“This area has always been at the crossroads between Central Europe and Byzantium,” said the Trestians. “Joining us on one of our Romania tours or Bulgaria tours will allow you to discover a unique culture and history.”
Recently, Balkan Trails announced their mission to disprove common myths about Bulgaria. Since Bulgaria is mostly unknown to western travelers—the country has been cut off from the rest of the world for half of the 20th century due to Communist rule—it is often portrayed as a country that has bad roads, is not safe to travel, and lacks interesting sights.
However, according to Balkan Trails, Bulgaria is much safer than many other European cities, including Barcelona and Madrid. Bulgaria also offers great sightseeing—many of which have made the UNESCO World Heritage List—such as the Rila Monastery, Madara Horseman, and the ancient town of Nessebar. The country also has a unique cuisine that includes fresh homemade yogurt and delicious salads. Travelers will also find the locals to be warm and welcoming.
Individuals interested in arranging private tours of Bulgaria are invited to contact Balkan Trails via telephone or email. The company offers four-, five-, and eight-night tours of Bulgaria, as well as day trips.
