BULGARIA

The Republic of Bulgaria is situated in the middle of the Balkan Peninsula on a busy crossroad of different cultures. According to statistics, our country is among the first in the world for the number of its archaeological monuments. Today's land of the Bulgarians is one of the ancient springs of civilization in Europe. The first traces of human activities in these territories date back to the Paleolithic Age (Old Stone Age).

Bulgaria is situated in a region once inhabited by the ancient Thracians and later by Greeks and Romans, and is a successor of a powerful European medieval empire which at times covered most of the Balkans and spread its culture and literature among the Slavic peoples of Eastern Europe.

After almost five centuries of Ottoman rule, Bulgaria was reestablished as a constitutional monarchy in 1878. Part of the Eastern Bloc after World War II, today Bulgaria is a democratic, unitary, constitutional republic, a member of the European Union and NATO.

Bulgaria has a great variety of landscape: high mountains, wooded hills, wide fertile plains and valleys.

The Bulgarian Black Sea Coast covers the whole eastern bound of Bulgaria. Black Sea Coast beaches occupy approximately 130 km of the 378 km coast. The region is an important centre for tourism during the summer, drawing foreign and Bulgarian tourists alike and constituting one of the country's most popular tourist destinations. The area's average air temperature in the summer is about 28C, with the average water temperature at 25C. There are more than 240 hours of sunshine in May and September and more than 300 hours in July and August.

The Balkan Mountains cross the country reaching to the edge of the Black Sea at Cape Emine, dividing the coastline into a southern and northern part. Parts of Bulgaria's northern Black Sea Coast feature rocky headlands where the sea abuts cliffs up to 70 meters in height. The southern coast is known for its wide sandy beaches.

Of all of the Eastern European wine producing countries there can't be doubt that Bulgaria has been the most successful. This is due to the fine quality of the vinification and viticulture which has produced wines from this region since the times of the Thracians.

VARNA

The city of Varna is situated at the Bay of Varna. It is the biggest city at the Black-sea coast and is called Bulgaria`s Sea Capital. It is situated at the same latitude with Cannes, Nice, Monaco and Livorno. The city is like an amphitheatre and follows the curves of the Bay of Varna. Lots of gardens, vineyards and deciduous groves surround it.

During the summer season the city is full of tourist. The sea is amazingly calm and free of dangerous tides.
