  • History and culture

    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.

  • Traditions and lifestyle

    The life and culture of the Bulgarian nation have been formed over millennia.

Beautiful mountains and valleys, forests, lakes and waterfalls, rivers and sea – here one can find everything they desire.

  • Wine and cuisine

    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.
