65 BULGARIAN CAMPSITES

 

Updated December 2017

 

(See the location of the campsites on the maps at the end of this article

 

Kamping Kromidovo:  This campsite is near Bulgaria's borders with Greece and Macedonia. You may be interested (and would be advised) to read our opinion of the site (with pictures) after we made a visit in November 2017: Kamping Kromidovo Reviewed.

See more pictures at: magbazpictures.com/kromidovo-camping--town

On this website, see Margaret's List of 49 Campsites in Bulgaria.

Route 80 Camping: See Malcolm Hill's 'Route 80 Camping near Sofia' visited in September 2014.

 

All information about the campsites has been gathered from a variety of web sites in English, Bulgarian, German but mostly Dutch.  Translated using Google.  Descriptions are accurate, I hope, but the GPS' on their website makes my effort seem rather small but hopefully helpful.  We went to the magnificent Rila Monastery in 2010. 

 

We shall return to Bulgaria !
