Austin (Bulgaria)
(Le Meridien Hotel) has a small but well fitted out gym and large indoor pool. Many bars sold local beer (Keo, Leon) for a cyprus pound. Also, many bars had big screens showing English Premiership and Champions League football games.

Alexandra (St. Petersburg)
We really enjoyed our recreation at (St.Raphael Hotel) We were on half board basis, so breakfast plus either lunch or dinner. Dinner was inside, semi-formal (no short trousers) and mostly buffet, although sometimes set menu. Buffet food was very good and plenty of variety. You won't starve if you stay here.
