Do you Really Know Bulgaria and the Bulgarian People?

What comes to mind when you think about Bulgaria? Even if you’ve never been there, you have probably heard about the Seven Rila Lakes or Rila Monastery which is the largest and most famous Eastern Orthodox monastery in Bulgaria. What about Sofia? It is the capital of our country. The motto of the city says,” Ever growing, never ageing” and that is true. What I recommend to see is the National Ethnographic Museum which was the former Royal Palace of King Ferdinand, Ivan Vazov National Theatre and the Parliament. According to a survey of the Price of Travel online portal, our capital is growing more popular each year due to the low prices of almost everything.

What about the Bulgarian people?  We have a reputation for being very hospitable, joyful and with a great sense of humour. Most of the people I know are grateful and generous. Some of the people who I talk to are keen gardeners and workaholics. Of course you’ll meet people who are annoying, nosey-parkers and troublemakers but that’s life and the world is a motley crowd.

The Bulgarian people are very polite. We say “Please” and “Thank you”. We are kind-hearted and the hope for better life has made a nest in people’s hearts.

I’m proud to be a Bulgarian.

The Bulgarian Stereotype

On the whole the Bulgarians are not bad people but sometimes they are envious. They always watch what others have but don’t see what they have.

In the past, the Bulgarians were a glorious nation that won many battles. But today it isn’t like that. They aren’t unified as in the past. Everyone wants and thinks about themselves but doesn’t  care about the others.

One of the greatest Bulgarians said: “If I win, all of the Bulgarian people win. If I lose, I lose only myself! ” Even today we honor the memory of this man and bow our heads.

The Bulgarians are not reserved as a whole, they love talking to other people.

They are not old-fashioned but rather fashionable.

I still think they are lazybones on the one hand but very sensitive on the other. People in Bulgaria are depressed a lot.

Basically they like to get away from their problems easily and they are as sly as a fox.

The best quality of the Bulgarians is that they are able to have fun. They are kind-hearted and always in the center of the party. They have a marvelous sense of humor. Jokes are in their blood.

Every nation has its good and bad features. I am happy that I am Bulgarian and I’m  proud of it!
