Each year the awards of the "Tourism and leisure" magazine are becoming more popular, also increasing the number of categories for which prizes are awarded - this year they were 30! And this does not come as a surprise, considering the rapid development of Bulgarian tourism – the constantly growing number of diverse subjects in the tourism industry and tourism-related activities.
The awards of the "Tourism and leisure" magazine accurately reflect the level achieved on the base of accommodation and quality of service in Bulgarian hotels, restaurants, resorts, municipalities and other attractions. This is because the nominations come from the magazine's readers, who are also users of the products of Bulgarian tourism industry organizations, associations and informal organizations, related to tourism in the country.
