Tourist Information Centres
Tourist Information Centres are very common in Bulgaria, as almost every city, town and resort has one. All Tourist Information Centres provide information about the natural landmarks, museums and galleries, historical and cultural monuments and other popular places of interest one can find in the respective region, as well as about local entertainment venues, tourist routes, upcoming events, etc. There you can also acquire useful information about public transport, banks and other financial institutions, restaurants, hospitals, pharmacies and health centres, and the different types of accommodation available in the place you are visiting.
In addition to that, most Tourist Information Centres also organise guided tours and walks for keen tourists and make lots of fascinating presentations aimed at promoting the beauty of the given destination. Needless to say, all of them offer free promotional materials such as maps, brochures, leaflets and so on.
The people who work in the local Tourist Information Centres are always friendly and helpful. They are well-trained and usually speak at least two foreign languages fluently: these include English, German, French, Spanish and Russian, among others. The various Tourist Information Centres have different opening hours and more often than not, they stay closed on official holidays.
