Visit to Bulgaria

Some of you probably think if its possible to visit Bulgaria using your Schengen residency permit without any need to apply for special visa. The answer is “Yes”. Two weeks ago, while we were still planning our trip to Bulgaria; I can’t help myself but search over the internet if I wouldn’t need one, I found some says “Its possible, some says Not”.  My husband says, I don’t have to because I am a family member of European Union citizen. Bulgaria is not Schengen area and that is why I was worried that Czech Residency Permit that I am holding currently wouldn’t be enough.

We decided to go on the 2nd of August. I don’t have anything but my passport and Czech residency permit with me. I said to myself “Oh what the hell! If they won’t let me enter from the Bulgarian immigration check then, No!

Luckily, after a very long checking they did to my passport and residency permit; they finally put stump in it without question. So yes, you can enter Bulgaria using your Schengen residency permit.

Okay enough for few information. I’d like to share few experiences from our visit to Bulgaria.

Our hotel is 30 minutes away from the airport . It is called “Majestic Hotel”. For what I saw, Majestic Hotel is the best hotel resort in Sunny Beach Bulgaria. It has a very huge pools, and a large enough pool for children. The area is very neat, and wide. I saw the other Hotels along Sunny Beach and I can say Majestic is the best hotel. That is just my opinion.

This is the view from our apartment balcony; where we stay for 4 nights.

That is how big the Majestic Hotel pools in both side, and a children pool next to one of them. The area is most probably the biggest among other hotels. Continue reading
