About us



  
BalkanTravellers.com is the first e-magazine about travelling on the Balkans. In creating it, we subscribe to two Chinese proverbs.

The first one says: “Find a job you enjoy doing and you will not have to work a day in your life.” This we’ve already accomplished.

We are now concentrating on the second proverb:“One should be just as careful in choosing one's pleasures as in avoiding calamities.” We keep that one for our readers.

We love the places we travel to and BalkanTravellers.com is our story about these places.

We hope that, for people outside the region, BalkanTravellers.com can be a reliable guide to the most impressive and often hidden tourist destinations in Bulgaria and on the Balkans.

For people from the region, we’d like it to be a first, inspiring step to journeys around every continent and an informed advisor in their trips to neighbouring countries.

BalkanTravellers.com aims to serve as a reliable source of information on travel. That is why we insist on a clear separation between our editorial information, selections and advice on the one hand, and on the other - the paid advertisements that we publish.

Most of the texts here were written by professional journalists. However, we invite all travellers who feel the pleasure of not only discovering new destinations but also sharing and talking about them, to This e-mail address is being protected from spam bots, you need JavaScript enabled to view it their photographs and stories.
