Croatia or Bulgaria? Which is better for young virile men and whats the best city to stay in?

Croatia has the nicer beaches but a young virile man might enjoy Bulgaria more.

Start in Sofia, then you could head elsewhere, there are beaches on the Black Sea and also some other areas. Check out the links:

The beach areas in Bulgaria will also be cheaper than the Croatia beach areas. Everything will be cheaper in Bugaria than in Croatia.

Varna reminded me of a disney style resort town USA, kinda lame to be honest. beaches were also stone beaches which I dont like as much as sand. Hvar Island in Croat is amazing and the clubs are not as cheesy as the ones I saw in Varna. There was also a bar there that didnt serve beer. I will not stay at a bar that doesnt serve beer by principle. The hostle was nice though, but to top off the bad Varna experience some Israeli guy in the hostel stole my bag. Im voting for Croat.. have a good time player.

Grub,
I agree, go to the Baltics. Great Choice. Vana Tom hostel in Tallinn is a great place.

and Vilnius, Lithuania -> the best city i have been too.

I also agree I'd head to the Baltics instead of Bulgaria or Croatia. Tallinn is awesome & Riga is also a very fun town.

hey. i went to bulgaria last year and i'm definately going this summer in a week or two. i was also undecided about the place ( bulgaria or croatia).
rocks in croatia <---beach---> sand in bulgaria
warm clean sea in croatia <--- sea ---> warm clean see in bulgaria

food and clothes are cheaper in bulgaria. meal in a good reastaurant cost about $3-5 or less. i went to primorsko last year wkich is a very nice town with restaurants, this town has 2 beaches (nudist beach as well). if you have any questions just ask

To grub:
averything they have told you basically is true.
But to add something:
Croatia is not so expensive if you look around. For meals, drinks and all.
Come on, coast with 1000 islands in Croatia - what can compare to that. And it is definitely warmer.
You can start from Split, then visit Zadar and end on the island of Pag, little town Novalja with most famous beach (for young people - Zrce). Endless parties and everything.
Or, maybe the best thing is to visit it all in next three years - Croatia, Bulgaria and the Baltics.
Well, in making up no one can help you. It is your decision.
Wherever you'll be - have fun.
