Winter Bulgaria offers its guests seasonal entertainment with ice skating, in particular. This activity is an excellent opportunity to diversify your holiday! During the winter season, dozens of skating spots are opened in the big cities all over the country—in Sofia, Varna, Burgas, Veliko Tarnovo, Stara Zagora, and others. Traditionally, the leader in terms of the number of winter rinks in the country is Bulgaria's capital, Sofia. Here you can find lots of skating-rinks, for example, on Lake Ariana, in the sports complex "Slavia," in front of the shopping center "The Mall".
Some of the skating rinks work for 24 hours. In Bulgaria, ice areas are usually created small, since almost all winter, the air temperature here is above zero. However, many ski resorts, such as Bansko or Pamporovo, also open ice rinks for skating in the winter to attract more tourists.
