Anticipated heavy traffic looms over Bulgaria as the nation gears up for the upcoming holidays. According to projections from the Institute for Analyzes and Assessments in Tourism, nearly 1 million Bulgarians are expected to embark on journeys during this period.

Despite May 2nd being a regular workday, a significant portion of the populace has opted to extend their holiday break, aligning it with May 1st festivities and Easter. Notably, May 2nd has been designated as a non-school day, further facilitating travel plans for families.

Traditionally, the exodus from major urban centers and the rush towards popular resorts heralds the busiest periods on the roads. As travelers seek relaxation and leisure, traffic congestion is forecasted to peak at exit points from cities and along routes leading to holiday destinations.

Authorities advise motorists to exercise patience and caution, particularly during peak travel times. With a surge in traffic volume expected, travelers are encouraged to plan their journeys meticulously, allowing for ample time to navigate through potential congestion.

The influx of holidaymakers underscores the significance of this period for both leisure and cultural observance. As Bulgarians unite to celebrate traditions and spend quality time with loved ones, the roads become arteries of connection, linking communities across the nation.

As the holiday fervor sweeps across Bulgaria, the nation braces for the collective migration of its citizens towards destinations both near and far. Amidst the hustle and bustle of holiday travel, the spirit of camaraderie and anticipation permeates the air, enriching the journey with the promise of shared experiences and cherished memories.
