Bulgaria

Last updated: 6 November 2017
Bulgaria situated in South East Europe, on the Black Sea, has an impressive history with diverse cultural influences. Ruins of Roman settlements are to be found all over the country, and the capital Sofia dates back to the fifth century BC.

Bulgaria is home to some of the most magnificent and best-preserved churches. Every city in Bulgaria is home to gold-domed Russian Orthodox cathedrals that house icons framed in gold alongside mosaics and murals of exquisite beauty. The National Park boasts cave churches that have been carved out of limestone by eleventh-century hermit monks.

In the countryside, red rock formations caused by erosion creates a fantasy landscape, the peaks of which support ancient fortresses.
