Bulgaria is an ancient country with a rich and diversified cultural and historical heritage. Located at the strategically important crossroad between Europe, the Middle East and the Mediterranean, the area has been inhabited since ancient times. Here, different cultures, customs and religions interweave and interact with the tribes and people who lived on these lands. Numerous historical and architectural artefacts testify to the rich cultural and historical wealth of the country, among which the Varna necropolis (4000 BC), preserved the world’s oldest processed gold; the Thracian tombs and sanctuaries with the world-famous gold treasures – examples of jewellery craftsmanship; the Panagyurishte gold treasure; numerous Greek, Roman and Byzantine monuments of antiquity; the architectural and historical complexes and reserves – Pliska, Preslav, Tarnovo, Koprivshtitsa, Zheravna, Bozhentsi, Melnik, and many others.
The life and culture of the Bulgarian nation have been formed over millennia. All people, who have lived on these lands – from Thracians and Romans, to Slavs and Bulgarians – have left their mark in the Treasury of World Culture. It is no coincidence that the first European civilization was born on these lands – the traditions, feasts and customs, which have been preserved through the living memory of Bulgarians, testify to the richness of soul, the lifestyle and culture of the Bulgarian people over the centuries. The folk music, folk song and the Bulgarian folk dances are vital parts of the Bulgarian culture. The Bulgarian musical folklore abounds with uneven traces – this being the most characteristic and distinctive feature of Bulgarian folk music -, not to be found in western music. The unbalanced traits, as a typical Bulgarian feature, are an important Bulgarian contribution to the European […]
Because of its unique nature, Bulgaria is often said to be “a piece of Paradise”. Embracing the incredible beauty of the azure warm sea and the magnificence of the mountain peaks covered with snow, the fertile fields and green forests, Bulgarian lands are generously endowed by nature with exceptional and diversified sceneries: a mild, temperate continental climate, which is suitable to visit all year round, a rich flora and fauna, and numerous mineral springs. Beautiful mountains and valleys, forests, lakes and waterfalls, rivers and sea – here one can find everything they desire.
Bulgaria has a long tradition in winemaking. It has become a part of the people’s culture and is interwoven with the diverse culinary traditions of Bulgarians. Each region preserves its traditions and offers various culinary delights. The geographical location of the country, its history and cultural influences enrich the Bulgarian cuisine. Salads with Mediterranean hint, spices from the Orient, complemented by our traditional yoghurt and cheese, create an incredible blend that allows Bulgarian dishes to suit every taste.
Business tourism has been growing in Bulgaria in recent years and our country has begun to become a preferred destination for international meetings and congresses.

The country is a very suitable destination for important meetings and events as flights from the main European economic centres to Sofia last no longer than 2-3 hours. The congressional industry and business tourism rely on the numerous exhibition and congress centres, conference hotels and venues, allowing for exhibitions and festivals to be held in all regions of the country.
