General information about the country
Most diving in Bulgaria is done on the east coast, in the Black Sea. Although some may say Bulgaria is a boring country to go scuba diving in, we would beg to differ… Armed with an underwater camera and a well-planned itinerary, you will go home with shots of picturesque reefs, wrecks and even ancient, mysterious rock formations!
Bulgaria is a relatively large European country and has a diverse terrain, ranging from mountainous regions to plains, to both sandy and rocky beaches on the coast of the Black Sea. As mentioned, most of the diving in Bulgaria is done in the Black Sea.
Bulgarian is the only official language spoken in Bulgaria. However, you will be able to get around and socialize knowing only English — especially in large, tourist-oriented cities like Varna.
The climate of Bulgaria is characteristic of central Europe with hot summers; long, cold winters; and distinct seasons (weatheronline.co.uk).
