Where is it?

The Pliska Lounge is located in the international terminal, terminal 2, in the transit hall. After security control, make a right turn and you will find the lounge on the right hand side after the shopping area.

The Pliska Lounge is run by the same company as the Preslav Lounge, also located airside in terminal 2. Passengers who have access to the Pliska Lounge also have access to the Preslav Lounge as they have exactly the same registration system. The Preslav Lounge is larger and less crowded as it is harder to find.
