Why? Because of its various resources:

  • Bulgaria does not have the Alps but Bulgaria's mountains are not less beautiful with their wonderfully varied landscape, alternating between rolling green meadows, ancient forests and rugged rocky terrain with dramatic peaks and gorges.
  • Bulgaria is not so wild as the remote Siberia but many of the Bulgarian parks and preserves have spots equally untouched by human hand.
  • Bulgaria does not have Cote d'Azur but Bulgaria's beaches are among the nicest in Europe - warm, sunny and sandy, and the Bulgarian Black Sea is safe, clean, calm and warm, with sandy gently sloping bottom.
  • Bulgaria does not have the Pyramids but the oldest Bulgarian historical sites date as far back as VIIth century BC evidencing presence of Neolithic culture on the territory of present Bulgaria.
  • Bulgaria is not as old as Egypt but at the time when the Bulgarian state was founded (681 AC) there were only three countries in Europe: the Western Roman (Frankish) Empire, the Eastern Roman Empire (Byzantium) and Bulgaria.
  • The list is endless...
