Bulgaria has a very ancient and rich history. Almost all great cultures of the ancient world have left their marks in this small country on the threshold of Europe and Asia. Thracians, Greeks, Romans, Byzantines, the Ottoman Empire – they have all left behind them countless monuments – tombs, fortresses, temples, and mosques.

What you can visit

Be sure to taste the fresh local cuisine – shopska salad, the traditional Bulgarian banitsa, yogurt, lyutenitsa, and of course – rakia. If you have a chance, reserve a table in one of the city restaurants where you can enjoy the traditional program while you’re enjoying the local specialties. 

Get ready… every grandmother, sales person, student or waiter will greet you with a smile and direct you to the nearest place to eat.
