What to Do in Bulgaria in Winter 2020

Bulgaria is a great destination for winter sports. In fact, it has the highest mountains between the Alps and Caucasus, making the country ideal for downhill skiing and snowboarding from December through March. Try resorts like Bansko and Borovets or Vitosha, near the capital of Sofia. Lake Ariana in Sofia is made into a giant ice-skating rink every winter, and you can enjoy it for not a lot of money. After the New Year, you might see groups of men walking around in scary costumes of animal fur. These are the kukeri, meant to scare away bad spirits. You can also see this ritual at the end of January in the Surva festival in the town of Pernik. And if you would like to shake the cold weather, enjoy one of the many warm mineral spring spas found around the mountainous areas of Bulgaria. Rent an SUV if you plan to go skiing, and be sure to ask about the availability of ski racks and winter tires.
