Beaches
The Black sea is home to many fine beach resorts, most of them very child friendly. Sunny Beach is particularly popular with families and provides 24 hour day care facilities. The resort further offers children’s pools, merry go-rounds, pony riding, kid’s discos and electronic games for those who are unable to leave modern technology at home. Skilled instructors can teach the young ones a new sport or they can go on a day outing with Robinson Crusoe and his Man Friday, a 40 minute boat tour to a deserted island where they meet the two castaways and then play games on the beach.

Skiing
Bulgarian ski resorts are extremely child friendly and many offer special deals for families who book in advance. There are Ski Kindergartens, organised locally, where young children get their own ski coaching and are looked after while their parents enjoy skiing by themselves. In Borovets, a nursery is provided for the very young.

zoo

Zoos
Sofia Zoo was founded in 1888 and is the oldest and largest on the Balkan Peninsula. The zoo is home to a large variety of species, including many mammals, reptiles, birds and insects. Some of the more popular species include the Black Panther, the lama, the hippopotamus, the leopard gecko, the green iguana and the yellow anaconda. The most child friendly attraction in the zoo is the contact zone; this is where the visitors can make direct contact with tame animals. Here, children and adults can touch, pet and even feed animals such as goats, rabbits, ponies, ducks and geese.

The Exotic Zoo in Varna is home to the most diverse and unique collection of terrarium animals in Bulgaria.
