Bulgaria is located in Southeastern Europe, in the northeast part of the Balkan Peninsula. It is an European, Balkan, Black Sea and Danube country. This geographical location places it on a crossroad between Europe, Asia and Africa. The country’s favorable climate and natural attractions provide the basis for the development of its 142 resorts, 26 of which are marine resorts, 56 — mountain resorts and 58 — balneological resorts, not including the numerous balneological and spa centers. There are international airports in Sofia, Plovdiv, Varna and Burgas. Direct charter flights are available to the Black Sea airports in Varna and Burgas during the summer season.
