What to expect
Curious about Bulgaria's communist-era past? What better way to seek out the sights of the former Soviet satellite state than by their car of choice, the Trabant. Driving your own classic East German vehicle, you'll hear the history of the area as you drop in at a brandy distillery, a local home and stop for lunch in a rural village.
After a quick briefing and a test-drive, you'll hop in your classic car and be ready to ride. Driving by beautiful Balkan scenery, you'll ride through blink-and-you-miss-them villages as you hear about the communist-era past. Stop for a snifter of brandy at a still and find out how the famous 'firewater' is made before tasting some hand-produced honey and seeing a snapshot of local life in a typical home.
Rumbling on along roads, tracks and narrow paths you'll arrive in Kosharitsa for food in a rural restaurant. Once lunch is settled, it's time to see what the star of Soviet car production can do as you speed back to base.
