Bulgaria is one of the picturesque Balkan countries, washed by the welcoming waters of south-eastern Europe's Black Sea. The country's history resonates through the ages: the Roman provinces of Moesia, Thrace and Macedonia were in what is now Bulgaria, and Alexander the Great, conqueror of most of the known world, was a Macedonian. Bulgaria is a land with a rich culture, too: the country's people are fiercely proud of their folklore traditions, and Bulgarian folk dances, national costumes, and traditional music play an important part in everyday life.
Bulgaria's communist shackles are gone, and the country is now discovering its potential for tourism. Visitors on holidays to Bulgaria can take their pick of beach or ski resorts, vibrant cities with varied shopping and lively nightlife, traditional towns and villages with rich folklore, impressive monuments, museums and art galleries, ancient monasteries and churches and so much more. Best of all, it's all relatively untouched.
