Travel Plovdiv Because of the Bulgarian Cuisine

Plovdiv enjoys a location that has given it a remarkable cultural and historical heritage. But it is not only that, the very location of the town gives the opportunity to combine in its modern urban landscape cuisine inspired from all over Bulgaria and the Balkans. So, you love culinary as art, as something new, as a delight to the senses – travel Plovdiv for the sake of it!

To get to know the Bulgarian cuisine, you should not think in the line breakfast-lunch-dinner. Just wake up early in the morning, open the hotel room window, drink a coffee and get ready. We know that you will be hungry, so we are going to get you to an artisan bakery to eat banitsa with ayran. The banitsa is the food that most of the Bulgarians eat in the morning; usually it is filled with cheese. The ayran is a drink made by typical Bulgarian yoghurt. Sometimes early in the morning people drink boza with the banitsa but that is another beautiful story.  There is a chance for you to fall in love with the banitsa, so you are going yo get the chance to know how to prepare it.

Still, do not forget one, the Balkans are a place where culture is very rich, but because of purely historical accumulations, interests, wars and other past events, it is now very difficult to understand what dish, where it went, how it changed, and why in one place is prepared so, but on another. More importantly, however, the whole Balkan magic is inside the dish.

You will visit the markets for fresh and delicious fruits&veggies, so to be assured about the foods quality of the Thracian Plain fields. From early spring to autumn, you can enjoy taste, color and aroma, and try incredible fruit salads or traditional Bulgarian salads, which together with a glass of rakia will open your senses for the main dish.

It is up to you to choose something you didn’t eat before.
