Travelling Buzz- I really like Bulgaria and sometimes crave the plain yogurt sweetened with honey that you get there. As far as the Black Sea ,it really reminds me of the US's Gulf Coast. Costs are lower and the beaches are great for swimming I'm anxious to hear more from you about Bulgaria's UNESCO sights ! Welcome to TG! We are glad you are part of the community!

Bulgaria is a place most Americans don't know much at all (although last year in Paris I saw a billboard that said it's the new best place for golf!) I'd love to know more and hope you'll write some blogs about it!

I also have to admit that I don't know much about Bulgaria, although more and more I've been thinking about visiting eastern Europe. I look forward to learning more about it from your future posts! Thanks!

A nice introduction to Bulgaria! Like many Americans, I've never really thought of visiting Bulgaria, and have mainly traveled in other parts of Europe, but not the Balkans. And after reading your blog I'm thinking...why didn't I think of this? and when will I go? I'm looking forward to learning more about your country from your blogs!

Thanks for telling us! I've been to Bulgaria a few times and was unaware of so much. I need to go back! Bulgarians really appreciate travelers. For budget travelers wanting to experience Europe, it really is a great country to spend some time and stay within budget.

LOL @ coz HuffPost says so. I just did the Baltics, I need to do the Balkans next. I worked with a Bulgarian guy in Boston and for years he would passionately talk about his country. Since then I have always wanted to visit and after reading this you've definitely encouraged me to hurry up and get there! I'd like to go before the mass tourists do

Thank you very much for this introduction to your very interesting country, Travelling Buzz! Like PHeymont said, we in the Americas need to take a closer look at this region. I don't like to travel to Europe during the months of July and August as it's just too busy. When would be a good time to visit Bulgaria? Weather doesn't have to be perfectly warm, I don't mind wearing a jacket. Is it a Mediterranean climate? Also, is there a good guidebook or reference you'd recommend?

I'm glad you liked the article. I would be more than happy if the post make you visit the country. @DrFublefinger I believe the best time to come to Bulgaria is september-october from the weather perspective, but if you want to see the charm the blooming trees give to the city, you should come in the spring. The summer is really, really (I mean really) hot and dry! The country lies between the strongly contrastic continental and Mediterranean climate zones, so it has an unusually variable...

Hi, I agree entirely, this monastery is very well worth visiting. I don't think you mentioned the cross inside with exquisitely carved very tiny figures all over it. I heard much of it was carved with a needle and Rila went blind while doing it. Whether I was told the truth or not, it is an amazing example of dedication, patience and devotion to your task ).

The striped pattern an archways remind me of what you see in the Mezquita in Cordoba, Spain. In Cordoba, the earlier portions get their color from different colors of stone, and the later ones were painted. Which way is it at Rila? Thanks for the view!
