Bulgaria in the Balkans has always been a crossroads, lying on the major land route between Asia and Europe and bordering the Black Sea. The result is an exotic land which combines Eastern and Western influences.
Sofia is well worth a visit and can boast some impressive landmarks such as the Alexander Nevsky Cathderal. Although Bulgaria remains one of the poorest countries in the EU, Sofia displays all the hallmarks of a modern European capital.
Prices here are low in comparison to Western Europe, and many travellers find the hearty cuisine and tasty local wines pleasing to their palates. A recent upsurge in tourists visiting Bulgaria has manifested itself in a number of thriving beach resorts along the Black Sea coast.
