Bulgaria offers a lot of sunshine. The climate is continental with four
seasons and a Mediterranean influence in its southern regions. Although
the Black Sea coast has mild winters, there is excellent snow for winter
sports in the mountains.
The winter temperature varies between -5 deg Celsius and +5 deg Celsius
(+20 deg F to +40 deg F). The average summer temperatures are between
+20 deg Celsius and +30 deg Celsius (+68 deg F to +86 deg F). Bring
warm clothing in winter (especially, if you go to the mountains) and
light clothing in summer.
