Information on Bulgaria

Jump to last reply

In just two days' time I shall be flying to Bulgaria, starting a trip on bicycle from Burgas. I've looked everywhere (I believe), but I just can't find the following up-to-date information:
Is the Danube theatening to flood the Bulgarian bank? I understand that it has caused some problems further up-stream in Hungary.
Are there passenger-ships providing transportation along the Bulgarian stretch of the river? Do they take bicycles (I don't mean motorbikes)?
Same questions as regards the Black Sea coast, in particular concerning the bit between Burgas/Nessebar and Varna/Albena. For this connection I would be particularly thankful for any
more or less exact information on timetables or on who (phone no.) could provide such information. (If possible, I would prefer catching a boat going north on Saturday afternoon or Sunday morning instead of doing it on the road, depending on the replies I may get to the following questions.)
Also, I have difficulty finding out if there are any hotels etc. in two regions (I can't cover that much ground in a day on my bicycle, so I need "stepping-stones"):
1) The area between Burgas and Varna, preferably away from the coast, along the road from Kableskovo to Staro Orjadhovo (Orizare, Djulino, Rudnik, perhaps even Pcelnik or Gorica).
2) The area south of Silistra (Tervel, Bezmer, Cestimensko, Alevkovo, Alfatar, Dulovo, Vokil, Okors, Todorovo, Isperih, Zavet etc.)
(For the Bulgarians who may read this: I'm sorry about the mistreatment of these place-names in your country; I have these versions from an ADAC map.)
Any help, any hint - within the next 30 hours, please - will make an enormous difference to me. Please e-mail me or answer here.
Thank you in advance
Jens
