Visit Bulgaria: our itinerary to discover this country!
Tick tock…only few hours to enjoy another journey! This is the time to visit Bulgaria, once again in Europe!
We chose this eastern Europe country because it’s not the usual destination well known to media but also for its history. We bought the travel guide just for curiosity’s sake, and when we actually read it we were really impressed about the city’s history and we decided to go and visit it.
Maybe this unusual destination could become an inspiration for your future trip. We hope not to be disappointed!
Bulgaria – in Bulgarian: България, Bălgarija – is a country in southeastern Europe. It is bordered by Romania to the north, Serbiaand Macedonia to the west, Greece and Turkey to the south, and the Black Sea to the east.
Inhabited by Thracians, Greeks and Romans was the cultural hub of the Slavic peoples in the Middle Ages and after a Byzantine period, was controlled by the Ottoman Empire for over five centuries! In both World Wars Bulgaria was a Germany’s ally until 1946 when it became a republic ruled by a Communist one-party political system. In 1989 the Bulgarian Communist Party allowed multi-party elections but only after 1990 Bulgaria became a democratic republic.
In Bulgaria people write in Cyrillic and the currency is the Bulgarian lev (BGR).
