Our Thoughts

Bulgaria continues to recover from a Communist hangover. It's a place for visitors to glimpse how a country copes with having its social and economic system turned upside down. We watched people pick grapes by hand, use donkey carts as mass transit, and recall the old days in their architecture and paintings.

Highlight: Most people enjoy Bulgaria's Black Sea resorts but for history and beauty our favorite spot was Veliko Tarnovo.
