Bulgaria

Bulgaria

Bulgaria is a mysterious country in southeastern Europe, known for its long stretch of coastline along the Black Sea. While many tourists enjoy the country's summer and winter resorts, such as Albena, Golden Sands and Pamporovo, the less-travelled areas of Bulgaria offer a wealth of history, art and outdoor adventure. A popular destination is Sofia, the cosmopolitan capital of Bulgaria and home to the famous Hagia Sophia, a 6th-century church and cultural monument that was used as a mosque during the Ottoman rule. The interior of Bulgaria is full of well-maintained trails for hiking and horseback riding through ancient forests and mountains. The country's efficient public transportation system will take you to rural villages and monasteries, many of which date back to the Byzantine era and are filled with paintings and religious icons. Come fly with Austrian Airlines to Bulgaria and get a taste of ancient and modern Europe.

Pod Lipite
If you really want to get a taste of Bulgaria you should just order up and down the menu for once. The tavern is just as authentic as the food that's in the pots and later on your plates. Vegetarians can pick and choose among the starters, which consist of fresh vegetables and salad creations. Carnivors can look forward to pork in white wine sauce and grilled skewers.   The interior is wonderfully traditional. Dark wook, old walls, wooden sculptures and natural materials. If you have seen the Dance of the Vampires a bit too often, you should refrain from eating here - the interior looks exactly how you imagine restaurants that should be avoided by women with a delicious looking neck. It almost seems surprising that the place is not from the Middle Ages but counts a youthful 80 years.   Tip: Friday and Saturday evenings there is live violin music in the garden.

The list of celebrity customers of Andrews' is long. Yet outside of Bulgaria most of them aren't really well-known. But probably they all have good taste.   For men there are mainly shirts and more shirts. Even that can be exciting, when you are looking for the perfect piece and then find it in the end. There're also the suit to go with, the tie, the shoe, the wallet and much more.    The women's collection is a feast for the eyes and offers much more variety.

Les Fleurs
To sleep here introduces a flowery dimension to your stay in Sofia. The first eye-catcher is the mosaics in the entry-hall, which show giant flowers and petals. Kitsch? Certainly. Yet it's administered at the right doses. The hotel doesn't differ a lot from better-known places in town when it comes to luxury. But it does when it comes to size: Small and very nice, this is the motto.   The hotel is located in the middle of the city, close to the Vitosha shopping street. The neighbourhood has just as much style as your room. Everything is said and done in a flowery way here, whether at the desk or on the big, cosy bed. When you are hungry you don't even need to go far, in order to gather the best aromas around you: The hotel restaurant Le Bouquet serves wonderful seafood with great wine.   All non-smokers, who suffer from chronic coughing during their time in Bulgaria, will find a reprieve for their ailing lungs: The hotel is entirely smoke-free, from the roof down to the basement.  Doubles start at about 110,- euros.

Vasil Levski
Lesson number one: Patriotism. That starts with this monument, hits the centre of the heart and doesn't get passed the history and personality of this man. To most Bulgarians, Vasil Levski is sacrosanct. He was the brain and ideologue behind the Bulgarian national freedom movement and lived from 1837 to 1873. In his 36 years he endeared himself to the Bulgarian people by fighting the Ottomans.   His name is more than a word - it stands for dreams, hopes, potential and freedom. If you talk to locals ask about the local hero. You'll be surprised how people, in particular the younger generation, can still get excited about good old Vasil. The monument to the freedom fighter is located at an ominous spot: It's exactly where Vasil Levski was hanged by the Ottomans, on February 19th, 1873.
