Burleigh Travel offer armed forces rugby tours to Sofia, Bulgaria’s capital city, and the highest capital in Europe. Bulgaria has four distinct seasons with dry, hot summers and snowy winters. For armed forces rugby tours, Sofia is an ideal destination as it is well known for its fantastic nightlife and cheap alcohol; bars are popular in the evening hours until midnight after which the crowd moves to the night clubs. While present everywhere, bars and nightclubs are concentrated in the central part of the city which makes it easy to explore several different places in one outing and on foot. Sofia ticks all the boxes to make for a great armed forces rugby tour and will ensure an unforgettable experience for you and your players.
Armed forces rugby tours will no doubt enjoy the historic culture and day trips Bulgaria has to offer including the Aleksander Nevski Church, Municipal Baths, and the Zhersky Bazaar.
