Some trains have suffered delays of several hours due to the heavy weather conditions, Bulgaria's state-owned carrier says.

The Sofia-Karlovo-Varna train will be 200 minutes late this afternoon (with a 3-hour delay also recorded in the other direction), while the night train from Sofia to Varna via Gorna Oryahovitsa arrived 318 minutes late.

The Sofia-Plovdiv-Burgas train is running 212 minutes behind schedule, the Bulgarian State Railways (BDZ) say.

On the Bulgarian National Television, a passenger was seen saying he had been informed his train would arrive 315 behind schedule due to frozen railroad switches along the track.
