Bulgaria is a country in the Balkan region of South-Eastern Europe. It has a rich history and culture and is bordered by Romania to the north, Greece and Turkey to the south, and Macedonia, Serbia and Montenegro to the west. The capital and largest city is Sofia, home to around 1 million people.

Bulgaria has a temperate climate with cold winters and hot summers. The best time to visit is during the spring and summer months when temperatures are milder. The country is home to many beautiful resorts along its Black Sea coast, such as Varna and Burgas, with their stunning beaches, vibrant nightlife and great opportunities for water activities like sailing, kayaking and fishing.

In terms of cuisine, Bulgaria offers a variety of dishes from both local specialities like Shopska salad (a mix of tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers and feta cheese) to Turkish-influenced dishes like kebabche (minced pork or beef grilled on a skewer).

The population of Bulgaria stands at almost 7 million people and the total area of the country is 110,994 square kilometres. Bulgarian is the official language, but English is also widely spoken.

The currency used in Bulgaria is the Bulgarian Lev (BGN). While prices may be lower than in some other countries in Western Europe, it's not particularly cheap compared to other countries in Eastern Europe.

Overall, Bulgaria provides an interesting destination for tourists looking for culture, nature and fun. With its great cities, breathtaking sights and delicious food it is sure to have something for everyone!
