Bulgaria is a part of the Balkan Peninsula in South Eastern Europe. The state of Bulgaria was first founded in 681 AD and is a country of ancient culture, picturesque nature, authentic music and folklore. The Bulgarian land is a place of rich cultural heritage – ancient ruins, medieval churches and monasteries, architecture of the Bulgarian national revival.
Sofia is a city that grows but never ages. Founded over 7000 years ago, Bulgaria's modern capital testifies to the country's eternal bond between past and present. Monuments to its rich Thracian, Roman, Bulgar and Ottoman history rub shoulders with modern-day edifices of cosmopolitan city life. Over 250 historic landmarks and architectural monuments blend in with the city's modern skyline.
