Bulgaria is a Slavic country in southeastern Europe bordering Romania in the north, Greece and Turkey in the south and Macedonia and Serbia in the west.
It is mostly mountainous in the south and west, while in the north and along the Black Sea coast there are plains. Bulgaria is a former eastern bloc country with a long history, dating back to prehistoric times. Between the end of the 14th century and the 19th century Bulgaria was part of the Ottoman empire.
Since the collapse of the Eastern bloc in 1989 Bulgaria has developed towards a market-based economy. Bulgaria has 7 million inhabitats and its capital is Sofia.
The main tourist attractions are the Black Sea coast where there are several resorts, the varying and beautiful landscapes, the well preserved historical and cultural heritage, and the tranquillity of rural and mountain areas.
Price levels for hotels and restaurants in Bulgaria are low to moderate.
