Bulgaria is a land of wide-open spaces, panoramic vistas and natural abundance. Farming still moves with the rhythm of the seasons and often at a pace of one horse-power (with real hooves) rather than the many of the internal combustion engine. The tools of yesteryear are still common here; scythes for reaping and wooden pitchforks for turning the hay. Everything operates on a more human scale.
Mountains are a salient feature of the landscape and they entice you to discover their hidden passes and sparkling lakes along numerous forested trails. The country has several eminent national parks and nature reserves protecting rare ecosystems. Bird life abounds all year round and there are still small populations of wolves and bears.
Visit now and you'll get to experience the blooming of a fresh, new and captivating destination, and you'll beat the rush that is starting to follow.
