- Visits to places of interest and resorts in the region;
- Topical tourist information;
- Catering establishments.
Information can also be obtained from the tourist councils and associations, of which there are a total of 33 in Bulgaria. Their addresses and phones are available in the chapters for respective towns and resorts.
Another source of tourist information are the tourist agencies, companies and local offices of the Bulgarian Tourist Society.
Maps and leaflets, reference books and publications with tourist information can be purchased from bookshops, as well as from the above tourist information centres.
Over the past 5 years, new maps have been printed in Bulgaria for all cities, towns, resorts and mountains, which contain updated information. Guidebooks with brief and more extensive data are available in sufficient amounts; some of them have translated versions into the basic European languages.
