BULGARIA – www.bulgariatravel.org

A picturesque small country called Bulgaria has existed for more than 13 centuries in Europe, linking East and West. Bulgaria remembers ancient civilisations and great people that wrote its turbulent history. Situated in Southeastern Europe, Bulgaria occupies the northeastern part of the Balkan Peninsula.

Bulgaria blends in itself the remarkable beauty of the azure, warm turquoise sea and the majestic, snow-topped mountains. The homeland of the Europe’s most ancient civilization and the oldest gold in the world, Bulgaria will enchant you with the wealth of colors throughout its four seasons, with the golden shade of its fine sea sands and heavy wheat fields, with the crimson color of Bulgarian roses and wine.
