In fact, ploughing into a beach area with a private vehicle for as far as your tires can turn is not “freedom of movement”; it is misconduct pending sanction if, of course, rules are drafted to impose fines and some brave souls are found to enforce these rules.

The battle between the supporters and opposers of the legalization and canalization of the love for the wilderness and uncontrolled camping is led on several different planes:

The first lines include “the barkers”. They have heard the words Constitution and freedom, so they shout these words from the top of their lungs simply because their task is to do so. The barkers themselves want no more than to be in the vanguard of those who enjoy the freedom to drink, roll in the sand and take drugs without being held accountable. When emotions are expressed in urban conditions, they lift children on their shoulders who wave tents with conservation appeals.

No one underestimates the pioneer enthusiasm of the campers who teach their kids from early age to graze ecologically and to go to the toilet wherever they please.

It is a fact that the cast division within the ranks of the freedom lovers leads to conflicts among themselves. But they have a common enemy in the face of the state that is too feeble to enforce clear rules about the responsibilities of the campers.

It is the chaos and indecisiveness in the preparation of the legislative documents that give courage to green leaders to invent non-existing risks and threats for people with tents and camper vans.

The forester Toma Belev who, together with his wife, controls green organizations with the main aim to halt the development of modern mountain infrastructure, to appropriate millions for the protection of geese and beetles and to simulate activity at places where such is not needed, commented again on the amendments in the Law of land planning of the Black Sea coast and painted a dark picture:

“People with camper vans, caravans, tents or pavilions risk to be fined unless they are on their own property or at a bivouac. The implementation of this legal hotchpotch will lead to fining:

  • All campers with tents, motor homes and camper vans in the legal and licensed tourist campsites, because the campsites are not and cannot become bivouacs.

  • The owners of licensed campsites;

  • Every owner of a motor home or a camper van parked along the road or at a parking lot in the two-kilometer area around the Black Sea, outside the borders of settlements (these are the borders defined as of January 1, 2009, as laid down in the law for Zone B);

  • Beach concession holders or renters of establishments outside settlements, if they decide to place a tent for their clients because the tent will be on someone else’s property.

  • Owners of summer houses or houses in Zone B, if they decide to invite friends over with their camper van. In order to invite such a guest, your property must not have buildings on it and must be registered as a bivouac.

  • The organizers of various sport and cultural events outside of settlements, if they allow themselves the liberty of placing tents for temporary protection of the participants.

  • The owners of establishments, parking lots or gas stations outside of settlements, if they allow a camper van or a motor home on their area...”

This sounds apocalyptic and leads to the conclusion that anyone who dares to go on a holiday with a tent or a camper van will be physically destroyed.

What part of the statement is nonsense?

  • First, fines will be imposed only on people who settle with tents, shelters made of sticks and rugs or camper vans on the private property of a physical person who has nothing to do with tourism.

  • Second, the term “licensed campsite” does not exist in Bulgarian legislation. The correct term is “a campsite placed in service”. This is a regulated property and no fines are imposed on its area. So, landowners who decide to turn their properties into campsites cannot be fined.

  • Each beach concessionaire can place movable objects on 2% of the territory of the coastline. Therefore, it is not a problem to erect one, two or five pavilion tents where people can rest in the shade while enjoying the beach.

  • The owners of unregulated property who decide to fill their land with tents or camper vans of friends, possibly to benefit from this service in secret, will also not be fined for the occupation of the territory. Combatting the grey sector is a responsibility of other institutions and laws.

  • People who arbitrarily settle where they please and stay with days will be fined.

These measures are no different than the rules adopted in countries where camping is part of the popular culture. The rules and the sanctions are clearly stated and strictly applied. It is not a coincidence that in Croatia, where the main tourism is connected to the sea, the second most expensive experience after yacht tourism is camping. The campsites there are classified by type of accommodation and by stars according to the conditions they offer. Any attempt to pitch a tent under the stars or stop with a camper van in the pleasant shade along the road and stay there for some time will be sanctioned with a fine of several hundred to several thousand euros.

In Bulgaria the people who protest against the amendments in the Law of land planning of the Black Sea coast oppose the enforcement of rules, because such changes would provide the opportunity to establish where and under what conditions the camping lovers will be able to take advantage of the law and settle comfortably, without any risk of being chased, attacked and humiliated. The foreseen fines are not a form of restriction, but rather a way to sanction free-riders and protect the rights of those who want to spend their vacation away from people who have decided that the place is nice and they can do as they please.
