Your opinion of Bulgaria

Hey guys, 


I've been wondering what's other traveler's opinion of Bulgaria?  What do you know about the country? What have you heard of it - good and bad things? Have you been here or would you come? 


Bulgaria is full of hidden gems, we have great mountains, sea, charming cultural small towns, delicious cuisine, 9 UNESCO heritage sites and many more things to see and to do.


I'm going to post some blogs about Bulgaria here on Travel Gumbo soon. Hope to see you there!


I think maybe the service in the country kinda sucks. But you should know that people who work in the sea resorts (mostly) work for super small amounts of money, they are not motivated to give their best attitude. It's a cheap destination but it has a big potential. One thing is that we have a lot of mineral waters (second in Europe after Island) but we use only 1,5% of them. Another problem is the government. Our politicians seem like don't care about developing our country but only use our tax money to buy fancy new cars...


Anyway, would be glad to see what's your opinion about Bulgaria. Here are some pictures of our beautiful country:
