Although the eighth biggest town in Bulgaria, it still retains a small town feel, and a holiday rental apartment in Dobrich is a great base from which to explore the surrounding region. Self catering accommodation in Dobrich contains all that you need to enjoy your stay, with all the mod-cons that you would expect from a modern apartment. With the coast less than a half hour’s drive away, and fascinating small towns and villages within easy access, a holiday in Dobrich is an excellent way to get to know Bulgaria better.
Many people go on holiday in Dobrich simply to relax, but there are also some leisure activities that you might like to try whilst you are there. As mentioned before, the beach is just 30km away, and here you can swim, snorkel and sunbathe. If you would like to try some surfing, then the closest break point is 70km away at Shabla. Inland, it might be nice to hire a bicycle and explore some of the countryside, or to do some hiking. Golfers may be interested in the Lighthouse golf course just 5km outside of the coastal town of Balchik.
Because of its position, your holiday rental apartment in Dobrich makes the perfect base to explore the immediate area, and farther afield should you so wish. Dobrich itself has several places to visit, such as the Ethnographic Museum and the Historical Museum. There is even a puppet theatre in town, which is a great hit with kids no matter which language they speak. Towards the coast, the towns of Balchik and Varna should be visited, with their mix of historic buildings and coastal views. At night, whilst Dobrich may not be the party capital of Europe, there are more than a few bars and a nightclub or two should you be interested.
You can expect warm sunny days from the months of May through to October during your holiday in Dobrich. Temperatures during this time can reach 28 degrees Celsius on quite a regular basis, and rainfall is extremely minimal. The winters are much cooler, although the snowfall that hits the inland areas does not fall on the coast. Precipitation is heavier during the winter, but far less than the UK at similar times of year. Many of the resort areas on the coast close down during the winter months, although self catering accommodation in Dobrich may be booked all year round.
