Explore Sofia- If you are in Bulgaria, you have to explore Sofia, perhaps the most beautiful capital city in the world. Sofia is full of life and has some of the trendiest bars and clubs in Eastern Europe. Sofia has several great restaurants and coffee houses and must-visit attractions such as the St. Alexander Nevsky Cathedral. There are many walking tours organized in Sofia, be sure to join one of them.
Check Out the Bulgarian Cuisine – Bulgarian food is incredibly tasty and healthy too. You won’t have to worry about picking up weight when you have foods like the Shopska Salad, which is Bulgaria’s national food. It is an incredibly delicious low calorie food. You will also like Tarator, the cold cucumber soup, which is served with every meal. You will love the grilled meats and stews as well. And yes, if you are in Bulgaria and haven’t had the Rakia, you’re missing out on something really very special. Rakia is Bulgaria’s national drink with 40% to 60% alcohol content. Don’t forget to have Rakia when you are in Bulgaria.
Explore the rich history of the place – Bulgaria has a very rich history that goes back to the days of the Roman Civilization, over 2,000 years ago. Explore the Rila Monastery which is on the outskirts of Sofia, the capital of Bulgaria. Visit the Roman Theatre in Plovdiv, which has been around since 98 AD. Remember to visit the historic town of Koprivshtitsa as well.
While you are at it, explore the ruins of Nessebar, where you will find the remains of three ancient civilizations – Roman, Greek and Byzantine. Bulgarians have every right to be proud of their history. After all, they managed to hold on to their culture and traditions even when the country was ruled by the Ottoman Empire, who tried everything they could to eradicate the local culture and traditions, and failed.
Check Out the People – Yes, people watching is one of the activities that most tourists visiting Bulgaria indulge in. Who can blame them, really? Bulgaria has some of the world’s most beautiful women. The men are not too bad either! Bulgarians are very conscious about their looks and work hard to stay fit. They have a great sense of fashion, they dress well and don’t mind showing off either. What’s not to like!
