The modernisation and renovation of the central railway station has finally been completed, making it a far more pleasant experience. There are still a few areas that need completion such as the food court, but for now everything is bright and clean and bustle free. The direct access with the underground is also ideal and it is fairly straightforward to find your way around with signs in Bulgarian and English. Train travel, although inexpensive, is also very slow and unglamorous and the only time that using the train (as opposed to bus) is of preference would be on the overnight sleepers to the Black Sea Coast. Bulgaria is expecting to have high speed trains to Plovdiv and other destinations in the near future.
