If you plan to travel Bulgaria soon, then it is important to make proper precautions. We recommend certain vaccinations for Bulgaria, although these are not mandatory. Which specific vaccinations you require, is determined by the regions you plan to visit and the duration of your stay in this beautiful South-eastern European country.
The Republic of Bulgaria is located in the eastern part of the Balkans and borders Romania, Greece, Turkey and other countries. In the north, the Danube River forms a natural border with Romania. In the east, the Black Sea is Bulgaria’s natural border. The country has a temperate continental climate with cool winters and warm summers. Bulgaria has something to offer for everyone: active holidaymakers can take hikes through beautiful mountain scenery, whilst sunbathers can indulge themselves on one of the many wonderful beaches at the Black Sea coast, such as Sunny Beach. Also, a visit to Sofia, with its beautiful squares and churches, is well worth the effort.
Whatever you do during your holiday in Bulgaria, always keep account of locally prevalent diseases.
