Funny story – I only visited Bulgaria because I was travelling in neighbour country, Romania, and the flight home was much cheaper! It turned out to be the best accident of my trip. 

Bulgaria is a multi-ethnic nation where you’ll see orthodox churches, mosques and synagogues. As an ex-Soviet Union nation, its history is troubled but fascinating to learn about. The scenery in Bulgaria absolutely blew me away especially during my trip to Rila Lakes.
