Bulgaria has long been underestimated as a travel destination,the good news is that it prevents everything authentic turning into a touristy trap. There’s an old legend in Bulgaria that tells the story of all the countries in the world lining up in front of God to take natural beauties. Bulgaria was late and when it arrived, God had given away all he had. So he took a bit of every country and gave it to Bulgaria.

That’s why in Bulgaria you can find beautiful beaches, snow-capped mountain peaks, historical towns, ancient traditions, amazing waterfalls, and peaceful lakes. Just take a look at the following photos and you will have no doubt that your next flight should be to Bulgaria.
