Situated at the hottest crossroad of religions and peoples, Bulgaria stubbornly keeps the secrets of its phenomenal and still-alive folklore and traditions, which were vital for the survival of the Bulgarian state throughout 1300 years since its foundation.
Traces of the oldest human presence in Europe have been discovered around the current territory of Bulgaria, as well as marvellous artefacts from the Neolithic era and the world oldest Gold. The Thracians, the ancient Greeks and Romans, the Celtics, Proto-Bulgarians, Slavs, Byzantines, the Ottoman Turks and the Totalitarian regime left their foot print. It’s hard to believe but even now - in the first half of the 21st century cultural phenomena from all of these epochs continue to coexist. This is what gives every trip in Bulgaria a pinch of exoticism and adventure.
A spectacular landscape, defined by many as the most diverse in Europe; great biodiversity; delicious cuisine with Oriental and Mediterranean flavours; authentic wines, remarkable in tasty tomatoes, fruits and vegetables, honey, yoghurt and rose oil, as well as unique tapestry and living UNESCO recognized intangible traditions. Tightly linked to its Balkan roots, Bulgaria still lives at different speeds.
