When to go:
– Spring and Autumn are good times to go, although it can be a little chilly first thing in the morning and in the evenings. July and August average around 30º most days. The winter months are ideal for skiing the slopes.
– Multiple carriers operate between South Africa and Bulgaria. Turkish Airlines fly from Johannesburg to Sofia with a stop at Istanbul and it takes 13 hours and 20 minutes.
