Explore Northern Bulgaria

Northern Bulgaria is a gorgeous region in Bulgaria and а part of the long-gone Roman Moesia province. This part of Bulgaria borders the Danube river and Romania to the north, the Black Sea to the east, Serbia to the west and Southern Bulgaria to the south. The magnificent Balkan mountain range separates the two halves (Southern and Northern Bulgaria).

Regions and features

We can further device North Bulgaria into three distinct regions: North Western, North Central and North Eastern. A considerable part covering these regions is the Danubian Plain, the fertile area between the Balkan and the Danube and not that plain at all. Typically considered a flat area, this region often mesmerizes visitors with its river valleys and striking canyons formed by water masses making their way to the massive Danube.

Provinces in Northern Bulgaria

Each of the regions (North Western, North Central and North Eastern) comprises several provinces. These provinces include Vidin, Montana, Vratsa, Pleven, Lovech, Veliko Tarnovo, Gabrovo, Ruse, Targovishte, Silistra, Razgrad, Shumen, Dobrich and Varna.
