What’s the weather like in Bulgaria in September?
Located in southeast Europe, Bulgaria has a dynamic climate that’s different around the country. If you’re heading to the popular Black Sea coast in September then you’ll get high temperatures and lots of sun, as the long, hot summer continues into the month.
The Balkan Mountains run through the middle of the country from east to west, and have a big impact on the weather in Bulgaria, which is the meeting point of Mediterranean and continental air masses. You’ll get cooler temperatures and more rain in the north than the south because of the mountains. Things are quite pleasant on the coast due to the Black Sea waters, where you’ll be kept cool by breezes.

Things to Do
Sunny Beach is one of Bulgaria’s most famous resorts, and sweeping sands that are great for you to lounge around on under a parasol. Obzor and Nessebar, nicknamed the ‘Pearl of the Black Sea’, are more peaceful spots to head to. Take to the seas and go on a sailboat tour, splash around at the biggest waterpark in Bulgaria, Ravda’s Aqua Paradise, or head out to the beautiful Strandzha Mountains which are just an hour from Sunny Beach.
