Panagyurishte Vacation Packages

Panagyurishte, a rather distant destination with no major cities nearby, can be found 45 miles (72 kilometers) east of Sofia, the capital city.

If you want to see a live sports event at Sofia's Pravets Sports Complex, venture 30 miles (48 kilometers) northwest of Panagyurishte. Meet some of the locals while you cheer high up in the stands.

For a more complete vacation, take a day trip to nearby Koprivshtitsa and check out some of the attractions, like the Lyuben Karavelov Museum and Church of Uspenie Bogorodichno.

You'll surely enjoy yourself at the Covered Bridge, Vasil Levski Museum and Hisar Fortress in Lovech, just 50 miles (80 kilometers) northeast of Panagyurishte. Additional possibilities include the Ethnographical Museum and Art Gallery, which are also nearby.

Traveling opens your eyes and your taste buds to a whole new range of regional dishes. Lose yourself in the culinary traditions of Central Bulgaria and visit a few of the local eateries.

The local people know that kiselo mlyako (yoghurt) and kashkaval (yellow cheese) are some of this region's most frequently used ingredients.

Experimenting with the local cuisine can be interesting. The most sought-after choices are shkembe chorba (tripe soup) and tarator (cold soup).

Give in to the desires of your taste buds and order a generous serving of mliako s oriz (rice pudding), a popular treat here.

Get the server's attention and buy a round of zagorka, a popular beer here. Cheers!

There are plenty of beverage choices on menus here which are appropriate for those who don't fancy alcohol. Mineral water is much-loved by the locals.

It's extremely useful to memorize two or three colloquial terms in Bulgarian. For example, "Iskate li da tancuvame?", which means "Would you like to dance with me?", can be heard spoken in all the major cities. A further helpful expression is "Otkãde si" ("Where are you from?").

See Central Bulgaria spring to life when you mingle with the locals for Liberation Day, a nationwide celebration held every year on the 3rd of March.

Get ready to leave, say, "Doviždane" and make sure you've got a souvenir to bring back home.

40 miles (64 kilometers) to the west is Panagyurishte's nearest major airport, Sofia Airport.
