Bulgaria, maybe Romania

Jump to last reply

I've just started researching these countries, not really sure about the itinerary yet or whether we will try to do one, both or Bulgaria and a few days in the Czech Republic (already been to Prague so we'd probably head out to some of the other towns like Cesky Krumlov).

I'm limited to either traveling over Memorial Day or Labor Day, probably for about 10 days max. I'm hoping to use BA frequent flier miles into Sofia or I could also go into Prague. I assume we'd fly between Prague and Sofia if we did that but would probably use a train from Sofia to Bucharest, maybe overnight as it looks like a 10 hour trip. Or maybe it would be easier to fly?

Any thoughts on getting around Bulgaria? Not sure if I want to rent a car but on the other hand it looks like the trains are sort of limited and would obviously slow us down. Is it possible to see Sofia in a day? or two? What other places in Bulgaria would you recommend? I assume at the end of May or beginning of September that most of the resort areas on the Black Sea would be sort of quiet (as was Montenegro at the end of May) but still worth seeing?

Has anyone tried combining a trip to Bulgaria and Romania? Best way to travel between the two?

Any thoughts you'd like to pass my way would be great.
