Tourism in Bulgaria | Туризъм в България



Tourism, as an industry, has been an important source of economic growth. While in 2006 the country hosted an estimated 6 million foreign tourists, in 2007, that number was increased to 7-8 million. The country has historical cities and towns, summer beaches, and mountain ski resorts. New types of tourism, including cultural, architectural and historic tours, eco-tourism, and adventure tours, expand the range of services available to visitors.

A picturesque small country called Bulgaria has existed for more than 13 centuries in Europe, linking East and West. Bulgaria remembers ancient civilisations and great people that wrote its turbulent history. Situated in Southeastern Europe, Bulgaria occupies the northeastern part of the Balkan Peninsula

Traditional tourism:
Winter tourist centres, such as Borovetz, Bansko, Pamporovo and Vitosha are picturesque and popular ski resorts. The Bulgarian summer resorts along the Black Sea coast, include destinations, such as the summer resorts: Sozopol, Nessebur, Golden Sands, Sunny Beach, Sveti Vlas, Albena and St. St. Constantine & Helena. Some guests, such as the Germans, Russians or Scandinavians favour the summer beach resorts, while winter tourism, and the ski resorts, are the favorites of the British.

Other forms of tourism
Emerging types of tourist activities, such as ethno-tourism and architectural-cultural tourism, eco-tourusim, spa-toursim etc.

Cultural and Historical Tourism:
being a home of many civilizations and cultures, Bulgaria provides numerous historical artifacts and cultural sights, museums etc.

One more.


Golf & Spa Resort Stara Zagora


An 18 hole golf course
Between 500 and 1000 unique and very high quality villas




http://www.zagoragolf.com/golfindex.html

Quote:

The Zagora Golf project is a huge development planned for an area close to the existing Stara Zagora Mineral Spa resort. It is the brain child of Evelina Cole (Bulgarian) and Stephen Cole (British) who are resident in Bulgaria.

It has taken over two years to source and buy large enough tracts of land to build an eighteen hole golf course and between 500 and 1000 unique and very high quality villas. Contracts and agreements have been sought and put in place for all the necessary services - electricity, sewerage, water and so on.

The development consists of 23 individual villa zones as above, surrounding the 18 hole golf course. The villas are available in a number of different styles - Mediterranean, Bulgarian and Eastern and purchasers can customise their villa to their own requirements, including using on site manufacturers to put in, for example, a copy of a Roman mosaic floor as a centre piece or stone work for a fireplace or on the patio. Purchasers can finish the walls with a choice of colours and floors can be stained or polished wood. All bathrooms and shower rooms and kitchen floors are tiled and the bathrooms come fully fitted and the main bathroom in each villa has marble flooring. Doors and banisters can be finished in white or natural effect wood, windows are PVC or aluminium and can be white or in a selection of colours. Each property has central heating and a traditional luxury fire place and water filtering systems. Outside there will be a built in barbeque and an intercom system. Gardens will be finished with landscaped areas and external lighting.

The zones will have completed roads and pavements and 24 hour security.

The villas even come with a fully stocked wine cellar with wines specially selected from regions of Bulgaria.

Each villa will have high speed internet access, satellite TV and all the conveniences of modern day living.

And only those who have bought a villa through this development will be able to play on the golf course. There will be no pay and play as there are at most of the golf courses being built around Bulgaria, membership of this golf course will be exclusively for owners of the villas in this development and their guests. Although details have yet to be decided upon it is likely that all villa owners will get the first year of golf membership free or some other discount/special offer. Those who wish to rent their villas out will be able to provide licenses to their guests to play on the course. Plus another great bonus for those renting out their villa, is that the guests simply swipe their credit card into an automated utility provider and then at the end of their stay they are charged for the electricity and water etc that they have used.

On site there will be restaurants, shops, swimming pools, beauty treatments, cosmetic dentistry centre, coffee shops, a spa treatment centre and children's play areas. It is much more than just a golf resort.

Very nice projects, especially that they are integrated with other tourist facilities. I noticed this is somehow a rule in Bulgaria. I wish our seaside had similar integrated projects, with a touch of local architecture.

Yes, there is one simple rule - there are no rules. That's why our seaside suffers from overconstruction and inadequate infrastructure.

I think that there should be a separate thread about golf course developments and golf tourism in Bulgaria.

Why, then we should have separate about winter tourism, summer tourism, spa tourism (which is also big) etc. And we'll have a big mess just like before - some tourist stuff went to Black sea projects and construction thread, other to transportation and tourism ,other to economical news and so on.

Because golf is all about development right now. And there is tonnes of it going on right now. The actual golf tourism is not even functioning yet.

One should differentiate between fast development and reasonable development. And don't feel happy with the idea that someone could envy us. I don't give a shit. In fact, we can't be on equal footing with Spain or Greece. Both countries have larger seaside and better infrastructure, moderate density and strict construction regulations. Spain saw some demolition of hotels but nowadays properties in Bulgaria are being sold to people, some of whom haven't even seen them, and demolishing a building with so many owners is not an easy thing. I've been to some parts of Costa del Sol and, believe me, we have a long way to go. Our greatest plus is that we are a small country and distance doesn't matter. Still, we are too far from the quality we claim to offer.

I have lived in Nice (french riviera) for three years and another year in Barcelona. I have some idea about tourism as that's what i'm studying. Big problems of bulgarian tourism will be solved in a few years or so. Don't forget that in Spain before starting to destroy some (and very few) hotels they have constructed a LOT, much more than us. It's ridiculous to speak about overconstruction in Bulgaria when you see the corn fields along the coast. Of course regulation is needed and it's coming. There wasn't good regulation in Spain or France in the begining of their touristic development it came after it. Infrustructure is also easily acquired once a destination becomes interesting.
I'll keep optimistic until I see the so exposed by medias "runaway" of foreign tourists. So far not a sign of it!

Anyway Spain nature is f#cked up since the time of the Great geographical discoveries and ours isn't. And we should prevent and preserve it with any cost. And also target at a little more wealthy tourist than drunk Irish dockers and crane operators , old German dudes etc.
As for the overconstruction there's one here that's for sure. Not to mention that some of it is in restricted areas. Building control and state agencies are really corrupt on this issue. I hope it's just a bad mark of the fresh capitalism and it'll pass away after a few years.

Hmmm...do not agree. Here are some photos of mine from Costa del Sol:

Not exactly ruined nature though the infrastructure is much better than ours. Do you see a 1x1 road with thrash all over? no. Do you see piles of construction materials on fenced sites all over? no.





Architecture is not so wild&crazy, the streets are good and clean, no cars parked illegaly everywhere:



A yacht port...no oil in the water, no thrash floating above. BTW you can see lots of fish inside, they use it as a proof that their marina is not polluting the sea:



This is how they preserve the greenery around historical sites:



And this is inside a resort, the size of Primorsko. Much greener, much cleaner, despite the fact there were in fact construction sites (working during the season) you almost don't hear anything, no shouting, machinery sounds only around 11-14h and everything is kept clean, no mud, no dust everywhere:




BTW, the spanyards do not start construction works before road, water, sewer, electric infrastructure is build. The fares for construction sites that pollute the roads with mud and dust are severe and the control is strict.


Way to go before we reach their level I think.

And yes, lots of eurotrash there, very rich people in the marinas and 5 star hotels and the usual eurotrash everywhere, just like here in Bulgaria. Our only advantage in that case....are the low prices, not the nature, not the QoS...

Look at the hills behind -naked with some bushes planted ..
as for the Eurotrash.. I think that we could attract wealthier tourist with the right actions taken.
The good thing for now is that at least we get more really hot chicks from MidEurope

that's what I mean talking about nature:







I found it a little better than Mad Max Spain landscape.

This is because they are in the subtropic climatic range. AFAIK with the global warming, southern Spain is slowly becoming a desert because of the decrease of rain. Anyway, the flora in that climatic range is lower, mostly bushes. The same is in southern Greece, Turkey and Middle East.

Anyway we have one of the best forests in Europe , the sad thing is that some illegal firms are destroying them. Not just around the Black sea cost.

This is how they preserve the greenery around historical sites:

Puerto Banus & Alhambra de Granada - 2 of my favourite places in Andalucia.

And yes, forests are not that abundant in Spain, however, people there can turn the desert into forest while some capable people here can do the otherwise.

Bulgarian hotel makes it to Forbes' getaways list

A Bulgarian hotel has earned the recommendation of Forbes, the US business magazine addressing affluent readers. In its section on Eastern Europe's extravagant getaways, the magazine features Yastrebets Wellness & Spa hotel in Borovets winter resort.

The blurb features the hotel as the best year-round destination, where one can ski in winter, play tennis in March, fish in summer and hunt in autumn.

The luxury hotel is the sole Bulgarian hotel that is part of the Small Luxury Hotels of the World international chain.

Its interior is furnished using only natural materials – oak furniture, silk, cotton. It has a 15m swimming pool, a fitness centre and Technogym apparatus, courts for volleyball, tennis and football, as well as an open-air playground, according to its website.
The magazine's full list can be read on its website.
