Bulgaria is a beautiful country located on in South Eastern Europe and bordering the black sea. We spent two weeks driving around the country of Bulgaria during a mild winter in January. Here are some of our favourite photos from our time in Bulgaria.
One very special thing about Bulgaria is the architecture. A particularly unique and beautiful style of the Bulgarian National Revivalist architecture. The style is characterized by wooden buildings, European style paintings and ottoman style carvings.
Bulgaria is also full of beautiful archaeological and historic sites. We spent the most time exploring the ancient city of Cherven.
Religious structures are also very noteworthy in Bulgaria. There are several monasteries that are UNESCO world heritage sites. Some like the beautifully painted Rila monastery are still in use today, while others like the rock hewn monasteries around Ruse are preserved for the appreciation of future generations.
