Hi Womble - that's sounds a bit weird! The flight was very straightforward. The plane took off at exactly 9.45pm at Bristol and arrived in Sofia at 12.30pm, (English time). We walked to the Ibis hotel which is less than 5 minutes away and spent the night there. That cost around £38 for a double room. Very modern and very clean. They will pick you up from the airport too for free if you request it in advance. Use Trivago to make bookings.The plane was nearly full btw although there were a few empty seats at the back- not many.

So all in all, an exceptionally easy, cheap and straight forward way of getting to Bulgaria.

Sheila
P.S the flight cost under £40 with 'walk on baggage' per person. Check Wizzair's website for up to date info..

I am booked to fly out from Sofia on 19th December and return 5th January. I live in Dobrich. Wondering about the weather and would I be better to drive myself, fly, take a coach or train from Varna. I think all could get stuck but if I'm independent I can set off a day before the flight and at least dig myself out or find a room for a night.

I regularly use the train Kardam-Sofia when working in Dobrich - but that was in the 1990s. Service may have deteriorated. There was a good day time departure that got you into Sofia late afternoon. Avoid the slow train at all costs !

Kardam to Dodrich line is all rusty, so are all lines out of Dobrich, the station is closed. To catch a train it is necessary to go to Varna. Shame that the government seems to have let the railways fall into disrepair as this is a short sighted approach in my opinion
