I'm jast curious what are you thinking about it.
Have you ever been in Bulgaria?
What do you like or you don't like in Bulgaria and Bulgarian people?
What will make you come: business, entertainment or ............?

I stayed two days in Sofia before taking the train to Istanbul. It was somewhere february and pretty cold there. I actually kinda liked the place. For the first time in my life I saw a bear trying to do some tricks on the street (the bear was not looking healthy though).

I long for the day when Bears Rise up! they are tortured and mamed animals. many go crazy and insane. If Bulgarians are doin these parlor tricks then its a knock against them. anyway off the soapbox...

Bulgaria for me was a transit only from Bucharesti to iStanbul via Varna.

only one nite there but it was a typical seaside resort town with out any real appeal for me. And i managed to find the only bar in the world that doesnt server beer! i was shocked....thought it was a joke actually.

Hello Evo, It's 7.45pm here in UK so I should say "Dobar vecher". I've been three times to Bulgaria, mainly black sea area. I love Varna and I've enjoyed Zlatni Pytsasi(?) or Golden Sands as the Brits call it.The people are so nice & friendly.
I really want to come to Varna next summer for 3 months and look for for college where I could learn some Bulgarian - do you know of anywhere? For now I leave next week to avoid the European winter by flying to Paraguay & Bolivia for 5 months.

If you do know of places for foreigners to learn Bugarian please drop me a line at -snip-

Bulagaria was great. My first ever backpack travel adventure sorta started in Bularia. I took a ferry from Marmara Island to the coast of Turkey and one of the only 4 cars on the ferry was actually a Bulgarian car and from the licence plate could tell that they were from Sofia, where I was going.

I ask if I could hitch a ride and they were the greatest. They drove me the entire 10 hours to Sofia and bought me dinner at a total american syle roadside diner somewhere in Bulgaria. It felt like I was somewhere in up state New York at that diner/gas station, super modern.

Sofia was the first place i stayed at a hostel. Was great, went to a Salsa club. All the hostel people left after like 5 minutes, I have no idea why? The club had professional dancers on podiums and u could get up there and dance with them. Met some good people who took me for a city tour of Sofia the next day.

Second time in Bulgaria was on a trip to Istanbul and stopped in Varna, learned that some people have rules...methods of living a good life. My friend doesnt eat at restaurants or drink at bars that dont serve beer. I can understand this rule.

I want to calm you down for the bears.
Here in Bulgaria is buid the first park for dancing bears in Eastern Europe. It is near the town of Belitza. The Bulgarian Bears don't have to dance any more or to be pierce their noses, because They can retire on a deserved vacation. The park in very comfortable and they can live there to the rest of their days.

I would visit Bulgaria if I knew with out a doubt I would easily find a clean, comfortable bed with a clean bathroom to go with it in any city I visit.

What appeals to me about Bulgaria is that I think it is fairly virgin country with out terrible pollution or consumerism. Maybe I am wrong.

Friendly sharing of culture with visitors would be ideal. And an easy understanding of the transportation is required (meaning, maps of subways and buse routes on the internet).

Good luck with your research.
