Written by Ivan KILIMPEROV

In today's fast-paced and stressful lifestyle, short-term forms of tourism become increasingly preferred. Another factor that favors short-term trips (given the conditions in Bulgaria) are the financial constraints on households and the lack of enough free time. This is precisely the basis for the rapid development of weekend tourism in Bulgaria and its high level of participation. On the other hand, Bulgarian traditions and folklore, traditional cuisine, architectural features of certain regions, the nature, spontaneous contact with nature, high degree of diversity and other factors can be considered as unique tourist resources for the development of rural tourism in the country. What is more, these resources if used as an integral part of rural tourism product, can make it extremely attractive and sought-after by both Bulgarian and foreign tourists. Therefore, it can be argued that weekend tourism in rural areas is one (or should be one) of the new tourism realities of destination Bulgaria, which is also in the context of the main purpose of this research.
