Please note that 1 Euro is changed for about 1.94 Bulgarian leva (BGN)
(at the airport the rate is substancially worse), and 1 USD - for about
1.72 Bulgarian leva (BGN) - but first make sure that the exchange office
does not take commission - it has to be written "NO COMMISSION" on the
exchange rates desk. In case you doubt - ask the amounts to be written
TRANSPORTATION TO BOROVETZ:
For the participants from Germany it may be interesting to see the offer of BG tours for a one-week stay at hotel Samokov including the flight and all transportations, of approximately Euro 450.
Please check the site of the Congress for transportation information - TRAVEL INFORMATION.
On the other hand you may find also the following
useful. For those coming from the Airport
of Sofia (which is unique, see http://www.sofia-airport.bg
) and if you do not have other arrangements for transportation - please
notice that in the department where you pick up your luggage you will find
an information advertisment how to take a taxi of a reasonable price -
the company name is "O'kay supertrans"! There is a reperesentative of this
company in the Luggage Department and you have to approach him, and on
picture the big black arrow shows approximately where is his office - it
is on the right hand side when you get out of the Luggage Department. They
take 0.40 leva per kilometer. In case you want to go to Borovets they will
charge you also the return way - the price will be thus 180 km times 0.40
leva which is approximately 72 leva.
In the city of Samokov you may find a cheap accomodation in private
rooms - for about 5-10 leva per day. The transportation to Borovetz is
relatively good but depending on the season.
