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.
