The national railway company of Bulgaria is known as the Bulgarian State Railways (BDZ). Bulgaria has over 4,000 km of railway network.

Book train tickets to visit main cities of Bulgaria by train. Bulgarian cities including Sofia, Plovdiv and Svilengrad are all served by trains.

Cityscape

Varna is the ultimate Bulgarian destination for culture vultures. Featuring a history of magnificent architecture, combined with trendy international arts festivals and authentic street side café’s, you’re spoilt for choice.

Landscape

Plovdiv, the second city is a joy for the eyes. Crammed with bright 18th-19th century houses, the landscape is a vibrant one with fantastic old buildings lining the streets. Take the train through Bulgaria to visit the churches of Sofia and the nine World Heritage Sites, featuring must-see Thracian tombs and isolated monasteries.

Take Home

Savour a glass of local fine wine from Melnik, and buy the bottle for the folk at home, or why not just get the whole case? Along the Black Sea Coast designer labels are everywhere, and at a fraction of the price they’d be in the UK.

Eat & Drink

Bulgaria’s vibrant capital Sofia provides many opportunities to sample the traditional meaty Balkan cuisine. The homemade sausages are a must, especially with a meat Bulgarian soup for starters. If you prefer to keep things cheap and simple take a train ride to the beach resorts, they cater for all tastes.

New Perspective

A first-class sleeper train with BDZ across Bulgaria is a wonderful way to travel long distances, you’ll arrive at your destination refreshed and ready to explore.

    "It was my first experience on the rail, schedule to meet so was very worried if I could make it on time but it all went well and the station master was very helpful. The ticket validation was a bit frustrating as it wasn't clear where the yellow machines were but people where very helpful. Very good system! "

    "After this trip a lot of mu friends are asking me how did it go. It was very convenient. Personnel on the stations and in the trains were very kind and service oriented. Our journey was done with no big delay and with good options like going to prague and innsbruck. Great value for the money. Whenever we'll go back we'll be using this choice. Thanks for the help and service. "

    "We booked at the last minute online for a trip from Paris Gare Du Lyon to Mulhouse Ville. This is the third time in 4 weeks that we have taken this trip. The coach was very comfortable, clean and spacious. The ticket conductors were extremely helpful as our French was very very basic. Looking to return and make the same journey in a weeks time. "
