Travel to Bulgaria

travel to bulgariaDuring the early years of the sixth century Slavic tribes settled in present Bulgaria, displacing native to the region of Thrace, although that did not prevent the continuing close contact with the tribes of the descending current Bulgarian population. In the ninth and tenth centuries, became a major European power, when they fought against the Byzantine Empire for control of the Balkans. That meant some defeats Bulgarian armies and the destruction of their status after the assault of the Varangians and attack Byzantine Emperor Basil II in 1018.Tras its restoration in 1185 turned to be a mighty power for two centuries until the fourteenth century was submitted by the Ottoman Empire.

Its tumultuous history has left an important variety of monuments and historic buildings that tourists on their trips Bulgaria appreciated.

The etymology is unclear, but some theories the set to the name of the tribe bulgar, derived from burg, and that means castle in German. The burgarii, by derivation, would that keep the strengths.

The nature of Bulgaria is one of the country’s wealth, as their mountains, have beautiful and dense forests interspersed with lakes where tourists stop to rest. D and the entire set what stands out are the Rhodope Mountains in the current is losing some of its charm as a result of excessive speculation and promoting tourism.

It is also recommended to know Stara Mountains, the Balkan Range, with a less spectacular landscape than Rodopi, it is still beautiful. Besides its passage is almost mandatory if you want to visit the Danube from the center of the country.

Meanwhile, the Black Sea coast is one of the favorite places for tourists. Maybe that will rest some of its charm, as it is full of resorts, souvenir shops and tourist attractions that have so far limited authenticity to the place. The same is true in some cities and towns as Sozopol, although some have been able to find a balance between this sector and the local environment. This is the case of Varna and Balchik that although very touristic, its urban areas are attractive and unpolluted.

Georgia

With sublime perched old churches, watch towers and castles that dot the fantastic mountain scenery, Georgia must be one of the most beautiful countries in the world. This is a place where (except in the most monotonous and Soviet-made sections of some cities) the human hand has improved a lot from nature. Finally put internal conflict and post-Soviet economic stagnation behind it, Georgia is developing its tourism potential and the provision of all its attractions safely and easily accessible to travelers. Appealing accommodation for all budgets is becoming available throughout the country and opportunities to explore on foot, horse or vehicle are expanding rapidly.

From the outrageously beautiful cities of Svaneti and Kazbegi in the Caucasus Mountains in Batumi, a city fun loving semitropical in the Black Sea coast, Georgia is full of natural diversity. Tbilisi, the capital and by far the largest city, has the atmosphere of an ancient crossroads of Eurasia, however, is also a city of the 21st century with the European style of nightclubs and exciting new architecture. The complicated story of Georgia has made a fascinating cocktail of influences from Turkey, Russia, Persia, Central Asia and beyond, with a wonderful legacy of architecture and art. However, today Georgia looks to Europe for their future and is the westernmost in the atmosphere of the three Caucasus countries.

Perhaps his greatest treasure is the Georgians themselves: warm, proud, full of life, cultured, hospitable and expert obsessively enjoy life. This is a country where customers are considered a blessing. The abundant local wine flows freely, the tables are full of good food and they never fail to be charmed by the warmth of their welcome.
