Bulgaria is a country rich in culture. Today folk traditions dating back to pre-Christian times are still practiced in festivals, dances and expressed through colourful costumes and bright headdresses.
Bulgaria has a distinctive culture from its neighbours: Romania, Greece, Serbia, Macedonia and Turkey whilst also blended influences from the East and West where it sits at the crossroad.
You can taste Turkish flavours in the cuisine. Roman ruins lay strewn across Bulgaria. Ancient Greeks and the Thracians shared the gods they revered as well as their love of wine. Bulgaria is a Balkan country. It is a mountainous region composed of a hotch-potch of regional identities, cultures and histories that intertwine with greater regional influences reaching as far as Western Europe, Russia and the Middle-East.
All this makes Bulgaria a fascinating destination for cultural and historical tours.
