About Bulgaria

At the very edge of Europe, on its southeastern edge, lies Bulgaria. Misunderstood and even overlooked by tourists, the secret is slowly getting out about the beautiful beaches and astonishing history housed in this country of around 7 million. A Communist country in its post World War II days until about 1986, Bulgaria today is a democracy with an upper middle income. Those who visit the country are treated to Black Sea beaches, soaring mountain peaks, and the bustling historic city of Sofia.
