The goal of current paper is to identify whether property’s category, location and size influence the degree of application of various sustainable practices by Bulgarian accommodation establishments. Results from the Kruskal-Wallis χ2 tests show that all three factors (category, location and size) cause statistically significant differences among the accommodation establishments in Bulgaria regarding the degree of application of the sustainable tourism practices. The paper concludes that Bulgarian accommodation establishments are still in the beginning of sustainable practices adoption. Managerial implications, limitations and directions for future research are also discussed.
