Quick Guide to Bulgaria

Bulgaria is a country full of contrasts - it attracts beach lovers and skiiers, cultural explorers and all-night clubbers, and foodies as well as backpackers.

Bulgaria packs a punch for such a small country.

And the food? Well, that's on a whole other level. Kebapcheta, kufteta, and ayrian are all local dishes and are all made with fresh, organic ingredients.
