Preparing your trip to Varna: advices & hints - things to do and to obey

mirror in the sea 1. A significant part of local people can speak foreign languages - Italian, English or German, so communicating with them will be not difficult in most cases. Tourists who try to speak their native language always win great respect for the side of locals.
2. Make sure you have enough of the national currency when you plan to visit local markets and shops. You can often pay by euros and U.S. dollars, but they are usually accepted at very disadvantageous rates.
3. Currency may be exchanged in banks and specialized exchange offices. Extra attention should be paid to the amount of commission charged. As a rule, the smaller the amount of exchange is, the higher is the commission charged.
4. Items made of leather and fur are very popular on the local markets. Here you can find clothing by local manufacturers, and by famous Italian firms. Do not forget to bargain with vendors. Sometimes this helps reduce the final price by 15 - 20%.
5. Items made of silver, as well as traditional clothes and handmade tableware are the most popular souvenirs that travelers get in the memory of trip. If various handicrafts and souvenirs are best to buy in a market, jewelry should be purchased in specialized shops only. Copyright www.orangesmile.com
6. Lunch is considered the most important meal for locals. As a rule, it consists of 4 - 5 meals. As for wine, there is a very interesting tradition. If the name of the month contains the letter "p", red wine is traditionally ordered in addition to food. Otherwise white wine is considered more suitable.
7. Do not forget to leave tips in restaurants and cafes of the city. The size of tips is around 5 - 10% of the total order. Leaving money on table is considered impolite. It's better to round the amount of your bill to any convenient sum in a big way.

8. When communicating with locals, it is worth considering that some of their gestures have quite a different meaning from the commonly accepted one in most European countries. Thus, a nod here means "no" and shaking head from side to side means "yes."
9. All the beaches of Varna are public. An additional fee may be charged only for rental of beach or sports equipment.
10. Most shops open at 9:00 and accept visitors to 19:00. Large shopping centers may work until 21:00, while supermarkets and food stores work around the clock.

Bulgaria: travelling advices

2. For the last few years, the tourism industry in Bulgaria has moved far ahead. The tourism infrastructure is actively developing, new hotels, parks and water parks are being created, which allows Bulgaria to be considered one of the most comfortable resorts on the Black Sea coast.

4. Bulgaria has restrictions on the importation of alcoholic beverages, cigarettes, coffee and tea into the country.
