What kind of weather can you expect in Malak Preslavets?


Apricot Hill is situated in north eastern Bulgaria and this part of the country tends to see the most extreme weather conditions. In the winter, temperatures can drop well below -20 degrees C, whereas in the summer it is not unheard of for temperatures to reach in excess of +40 degrees C. When we arrived in Ruse in the summer of 2014 the temperatures were actually higher than they were in Egypt. By sharp contrast, the winter of 2011/12 saw temperatures plummet so low that the River Danube froze over.

 

As a very rough guide the average temperatures in °C for each month are listed below. In our experience  the summer temperatures provided most certainly tend to lean towards the upper end of the spectrum, with temperatures reaching a peak at around 16:00 each day.

Feb - 6° to -2°
Mar - 12° to 2°
Apr - 18° to 6°
May - 23° to 11°

Jul - 30° to 17°
Aug - 29° to 17°
Sep - 25° to 12°
Oct - 17° to 7°
Nov - 9° to 1°

Acacia blossom

You cannot fail to be enchanted by Malak Preslavets in the spring. The grounds of Apricot Hill are alive with the sound of birdsong and the many fruit and acacia trees are in blossom.

There is plenty of alfresco eating places in Silistra

The long hot Bulgarian summers lend themselves to alfresco eating and drinking. In nearby city Silistra you will find no shortage of excellent restaurants and cafes, most of which have outdoor seating areas.

Walnut trees line the borders of the campsite at Apricot Hill

At the start of October it is not uncommon for daytime temperatures to be in the low 20s but by the end of the month it is noticeably cooler. Any guests who come and stay with us in October will have the bonus of being able to collect nuts from the many walnut trees that line the grounds.

 

4x4 in the snow

It’s clear to see why Bulgaria is such a popular skiing destination in the winter. Experiencing deep snow throughout the winter months as shown in the above image is not at all uncommon.
