In Sardinia is too cold for sea turism in this period. I would recommend better Sicily or mainland southern Italy. You won't sunbath there but there are more historical sites than in Sardinia, that are pleasant to visit in the chilly, but rarely cold especially on the coast, winter weather.
You can also go to Greece or Turkey, that is easily feasible also by car from Bulgaria.

@cinxx nice videos. how come you went to predjama? I don't think anyone suggested that to you
Florence isn't much warmer than Venice in winter. It's two parallels more south but also in a more continental area and closer to mountains.

Did you asked for it? Afaik they usually don't stamp it, since you can enter HR with ID.

Chilio, I'd suggest Genoa, but the airport is not so well connected... you may find interesting connections with Milan airports, and then trains. And, even though the climate is mild in winter, the city gives its best with lots of sunlight

A friend of mine was there and also in the cave, and Postojna too.
I didn't have the time for the caves, but liked the idea with castle in the cliff, so I went there. It was really nice

No, I didn't ask.
The customs officer looked inside the pages, and then stamped it.
I only had a touristic stamp of Liechtenstein, my GF also had a stamp from Beograd airport 2 years ago.

Anyway, as I already posted in this thread... I think places near Milano are good options, as there are a lot of low-cost air connections to Bergamo. But I'm not asking only about Italy. So any advice about central European capitals etc. also is welcome. Any views of the January weather in Prague, Budapest... Is it tolerable for sightseeing?

Rarely if crossing by car, always on a train.

Prague and Budapest may be too cold and snowy in this period. What about Spain or Southern France? Or Central Italy (Rome)?

I thought also of Spain and Portugal, but they are too far away and flight time is longer (it will be the first time my daughter will fly, so I don't know how it will be, as she is too small) and also flight tickets are quite more expensive.

Budapest in January may be very cold.

And what about Bucharest (probably by car)... I think there's also things for sightseeing and is a city worth visiting?

Budapest or Prague might be really cold (but rather rarely snowy) but I think that also windy and wet weather by the medditeranean might be harsh. At least in England it felt really cold by the sea when it was like 8C. Maybe inner Spain might be better in the Winter. I was thinking to go to Madrid in February/March.
