There are only 4 terminals in the airport of Sofia. One of them is called the old airport. The second one was built about 11 years ago and annually serves about two and a half million passengers. The third terminal is an aerial harbor of the VIP class, and accordingly, the terminal infrastructure is at the highest level. The fourth terminal, as a rule, is closed to ordinary citizens and accepts only governmental flights. The next important international airport in Bulgaria is Burgas. In the midst of the tourist season, there are additional flights serving foreigners. Two terminals are functioning successfully on the territory of the airport. One of them is practically new; it was opened only 3 years ago. On the territory of Burgas, there is a spacious comfortable waiting room where passengers can be accommodated, a VIP lounge with a high level of comfort, currency exchange offices, international bank offices, ATMs, and restaurants that offer not only colorful national delicacies, but also traditional European cuisine. In addition, you can, on the territory of the terminal, rent a car or order for a transport to a hotel.
Overview of festivals and celebrations in Bulgaria
Traditions of the Bulgarians prescribe greeting the spring by all means fun and in a big way. On this day it is customary to make special gifts - martenitsa, pupae made from woolen red and white threads. They are given to amuse the grumpy Baba Martha, who in the folklore of the Bulgarians is a grandmother with a rapidly changing mood. Her mood is directly related to the weather in March, and residents try to appease capricious Baba Martha. If she smiles, then the weather will certainly become sunny and warm, if you piss her off, you can expect the cold wind and even wet snow. For luck the following year, a martenitsa doll is hung on a blooming apple, cherry or plum.
