Atlandis Top 3 'Things to Do'
Rila Monastery and Boyana Church Day Trip from Sofia
Immerse yourself in the beguiling beauty of two of Bulgaria’s most spectacular sights on a full-day trip from Sofia. Admire the natural splendor of rural Bulgaria as you travel to the Rila Monastery, a sacred structure cradled by the dense pine forests of the mountains. Delve into the history of the medieval landmark and browse the intriguing exhibitions of the on-site museum. Continue to Boyana Church to gaze at the fascinating pre-Renaissance frescoes that decorate the walls within. Please note, entrance fees are not included on this tour.
Wine Tasting in Heart of Sofia
During your personal tasting experience I will guide you through the distinctive world of Bulgarian wines. Although Bulgaria has been producing wine for 5000 years it is still relatively unknown to the rest of the world. Now a rising new generation of Bulgarian boutique winemakers are devoted to the craft and bringing new attention to our country. You will taste 5 wine varieties of local grapes unique to Bulgaria, that can not be found anywhere else: Miskets, Melnik, Mavrud, Gumza and Rubin. Plus, local cheeses, artisanal bread and mineral water. The tasting is held in one of the best boutique wine shops in Sofia – Tempus Vini, which is located on an artsy street in the city center, known for its fine restaurants and boutiques. And just a few streets away from Sofia’s main pedestrian boulevard.
Superb Black Sea Yacht Picnic
Set sail on on a private yacht tour of the Black Sea. The day trip takes you along the coast past Balchik. You’ll also enjoy a full meal with unlimited alcoholic and non-alcoholic drinks on the beach, on a fully prepared table under the comfort of sun umbrellas. Then, take your pick of a number of water activities or simply sunbathe before it’s time to return.
