This month, I went to Bulgaria for the first time and I definitely hope I’ll get to go again one day, because I completely fell in love with this beautiful country. And here are 5 reasons why I think you should consider going there.
1. They’ve recently discovered ruins in Sofia
And when I say recently, I mean in the 2000s. As they were digging for metro tunnels, they found a bunch of beautiful ruins dating back to the Roman times. There was already a lot of ruins to see in Bulgaria, but there’s more and more historical jewels to be found every year!
2. It’s budget-friendly
I went there basically because Italy was about to make my wallet combust. It’s really cheap to travel there, so really, you have no excuses not to go.
3. The Square of Religious Tolerance
How awesome is it that there’s a square in Sofia where four religions live in peace with a mosque, a Catholic cathedral, an orthodox church, and a synagogue just a few minutes walk of each other?
4. Plovdiv is one of the oldest cities on Earth
And Europe’s oldest inhabited city. (App. 6000-8000 years old.) The streets and houses in Old Plovdiv are just sooooo beautiful!
5. Because I say so?
Honestly do you need more reasons to go than that? Look at these photos? Doesn’t Bulgaria look downright awesome?
Have you guys been to Bulgaria?
