Best things to do and see in Bulgaria

Due to the size of the United States, the duration of flights to Bulgaria vary significantly depending on the airport you depart from. You can find flights to Bulgaria from the main US hubs. For instance, flights out of John F. Kennedy International Airport (JFK) can take from about 9h and 30min to around 10h and 30min before arriving at Sofia Airport (SOF) in the country’s capital. As for flights departing from Chicago O’Hare International Airport (ORD), it can take up to 12h to arrive in Sofia, Bulgaria. For travelers taking flights to Bulgaria from a west coast airport like Los Angeles International Airport (LAX), it can take up to 16h and 30min, depending on the route chosen. You can also find flights from the United States that land at another Bulgarian airport. For example, there are cheap flights to Varna Airport (VAR) that take about 10h and 30min from John F. Kennedy International Airport in New York.

Currently, there aren’t any nonstop flights to Bulgaria from the United States. However, there are plenty of options with only one layover to Sofia Airport, the main hub of Bulgaria. There are a few airlines, like Turkish Airlines, KLM, Delta Airlines, and Air France, that offer flights from John F. Kennedy International Airport to Sofia Airport with only one layover, generally at Amsterdam Airport Schiphol (AMS), Istanbul Airport (IST), or Paris Charles de Gaulle Airport (CDG). From Chicago O’Hare International Airport, there are routes with only one layover via LOT Polish Airlines, KLM, or Lufthansa. These layovers are usually at Warsaw Frederic Chopin Airport (WAW), Amsterdam Airport Schiphol, or Munich Franz Josef Strauss Airport (MUC). The flights from Los Angeles International Airport with only one stopover are operated by companies like Lufthansa and Air France.

One of the most reliable ways of traveling between Bulgarian cities is by bus. There are various bus companies offering routes, and it’s an affordable way of getting, for example, from Sofia to Varna in approximately 6h and 30min. Plovdiv is another very popular destination in Bulgaria, and traveling by bus is also the most reasonable way of getting there from Sofia; it takes up to 2h and 30min to make the journey. However, there are also short domestic flights that can get you to large Bulgarian cities like Varna from Sofia as well, saving on travel time. These short flights to Varna are operated by airlines such as Bulgarian Air and Ryanair. For those who wish to explore the smaller towns in Bulgaria and discover the more remote areas, like the Seven Rila Lakes or Cape Kiliakra, renting a car is the most convenient way of traveling, offering travelers the flexibility to move around at their own pace and have more freedom with their schedules.

US citizens are required to have a passport when traveling to Bulgaria, and your passport must be valid up to at least three months beyond your departure date out of Bulgaria. In addition, the name on the passport must coincide with the name on your plane ticket. As for Bulgarian visa requirements, US citizens do not have to obtain one as long as they don’t stay in the country for longer than 90 days.
