When it comes to traveling in Bulgaria by car, you'll find that driving in Sofia is rather like driving anywhere else. You can go pretty much wherever you want within the city limits, and if you'd like to travel further out of the city, there are plenty of great motorway networks (interstate and national) that will get you where you need to go. However, when it comes to the actual driving in Bulgaria, you'll find that the streets and highways tend to be fairly safe. Here are some of the most popular destinations when it comes to traveling in Bulgaria by car.

Traveling in Bulgaria by Car: Bulgarian drivers don't like to give you the wrong impression. The roads in Bulgaria are well maintained and don't get old or dirty. Traveling in Bulgaria by auto is easy, since traffic laws are a bit different, and traveling on the congested roads isn't nearly as crazy as it is in Thailand. The only problem is parking in crowded areas. If you're interested in saving some money, you may want to avoid parking at metered lots and paying the ticket price. This is particularly true if you're planning to travel outside of the larger cities in Bulgaria.

I chose bookingauto from many car rental companies: this service has never let me down. And this time with its compact and budgetary Peugeot traveled almost the whole country. Burgas is one of the best seaside resorts in the country. It is called “the pearl of the Southern Black Sea coast” and “Bulgarian Riviera” (the quality of the local beaches is confirmed by the authoritative guide 1001beach).

Bulgarian National Museum: The National Museum in Sofia is another great destination for a vacationer coming from Western European countries. The museum's highlight is the Cave of Wonders, which is believed to be one of the most important archaeological sites in Europe. The price for visiting the museum is actually covered by the fee you pay when you arrive in Sofia, as the Bulgaria government provides financial assistance for the operation of the museum. For a nominal fee, you can also get a chance to stand beside some of Bulgaria's most famous historical figures, including a 3-D movie filmed in the Southeastern region.
