Spa Hotels in Germany

A businessman wants to recover after a long flight. The mother of three children wants to be alone with herself. A group of friends plans to celebrate a birthday. A man with back pain is looking for relief. A teenager suffers from acne. A workaholic suffers from nervous exhaustion. The smoker wants to get rid of a bad habit.

The tour package also includes medical insurance, in which you can make your own additions if you wish. The financial issue, namely, the exchange of money for the national currency of Bulgaria, the leva, can be resolved before departure or immediately upon arrival. Despite joining the European Union, reckoning on cash payment of euro banknotes is reckless. A language problem usually does not arise: much of Bulgarian speech is understandable without translation (for example, most phraseological expressions). In other cases, the phrasebook will help.

However, if a lot has already been written about the beauties of Abkhazia, then they are reluctant to write about those small difficulties that tourists can wait when visiting the former “Soviet Riviera”.

In this article we will try to tell you about Abkhazian surprises that are best avoided so that the trip leaves only pleasant memories.

Some surprises will by no means be surprises for those who have already rested in the Caucasus and are familiar with the Caucasian mentality. This means – one should not be rude, provoke local residents with too frank clothes, and in no case should humiliate national dignity.

Abkhazia has its own peculiarity – residents of remote mountain villages are not spoiled by tourism and show real, disinterested Caucasian hospitality. Continue reading
