Tips for travelling in Bulgaria
1. Make sure you have some Bulgarian currency at all times. A lot of places do accept card payments but you are better being sure.
2. Bulgarians shake their heads for a “no” when in reality that means “yes”. So just to be sure the only two words I would recommend you to learn if you don’t want to learn any bulgarian are “yes” -“da” in bulgarian and “no”pronounced “ney” to avoid any confusion.
3.Most bulgarians understand English even if they will avoid speaking it . In the bigger towns you will have no problem ordering food or getting about, but if you are plannin to visit any of the rural places you are better off getting a guide to help you along the journey
4.In Bulgaria you can buy and drink alcohol any time and almost any where. Every garage and caffee has a rich choice of local wines, beers and spirits. They come at a very affordable price, so if you are not driving make sure you try some.
