One of the youngest Bulgarian tourist destinations, immersed in greenery, surrounded by hills, it is a place with a unique atmosphere! A beach with a length of more than 5 km, with golden sand, gently descending into the azure sea, is a real paradise for the lovers of sunbathing. This charming resort, perfect for a family holiday, will allow you to relax and rest, and the nearby restaurants and taverns are the perfect places to try local specialties. Albena offers peace, but not boredom - everyone will find something for themselves here. An additional attraction, which will surely appeal to the youngest tourists, is the narrow gauge railway "chu-chu" running along the village.

Albena is also a paradise for active people, who will find here many opportunities to practice water sports, such as windsurfing or diving, and many others. There are also modern golf courses and several tennis courts, you can play volleyball, football and ride a horse. The effort and commitment of the founders of the complex were appreciated by ACES Europe, which recognized Albena as the European Sports Resort of 2019. This prestigious award is given to places that create a special climate and take care of the infrastructure to practice sports not only professionally, but also amateurishly – regardless of skills and age.

Attractions in the region

SOFIA – ALEXANDER NEVSKY CATHEDRAL

The cathedral mosque of St Aleksander Nevsky, which houses 5 thousand people, was built in the years 1882-1913 in a neo-Byzantine style according to the project of an architect from St. Petersburg - A.N. Pomerantsev.

VARNA

On a high terrace over the coast extends a huge Seaside Park, designed by the Czech Anton Novak - the architect modeled on the gardens of the imperial palace Schönbrunn in Vienna.

RILA MONASTERY

The famous monastery was visited by Tsar Petar (927-969). In the Orthodox Church an urn has been placed with the heart of the last Tsar of Bulgaria, Boris III of Bulgaria, who converted here to orthodoxy. A museum operates here, which is rich in exhibits.

ETAR

Here you can: paint an icon, design and make beautiful jewellery, forge a horseshoe for a horse, make a pot, and after some hard work have a lokum, halva, sesame and eat many delicious... etars.

GABROVO

In the city of humour and satire, the clock on the tower works also at night. It does not pay off to wear shoes by climbing the tower in the morning to turn on the mechanism, and again in the evening to stop it...

NESSEBAR

The walls of the proud Greek Mesembria neighbours with a complex of 18th-century houses in Black Sea style, with artfully carved wooden pillars and bays. "The Bulgarian Ravenna" impresses with its view of the Orthodox church.

IN THE STRANDZHA MOUNTAINS

...Xenophon admired the Thracian dances. Thracian rituals survived in nestinars' rites - a dance on burning coal. This tradition was inscribed on UNESCO's List of Masterpieces of the Oral and Intangible Heritage of Humanity.

KAZANLAK

Valiant Thracians rest with their horses in kurgans in the Valley of the Thracian Kings. There are more than 1500 of them in the fragrant with roses Kazanlak Basin (it is also worth visiting the Museum of Roses).

BACHKOVO MONASTERY

On the fresco Last Judgement in the Orthodox Church of St Nicholas, the artist Zachari Zograf placed influential Turkish citizens of Plovdiv among the damned. The passions of Muslims have gained approval from Bulgarians, but the naked women sinners aroused disgust.

PERPERIKON
