Bulgaria is situated in the eastern part of the Balkan Peninsula in Southeastern Europe and occupies 111.000 sq km. The country borders on the Black Sea to the east, on Greece and Turkey to the south, to the west – on the Republic of Macedonia and Serbia and to the north – on Romania.
Bulgaria dates back to the 7th century AD, when the First Bulgarian Kingdom was established (which lasted between 632/681 and 1018). It played a key role in the cultural life in Europe at that time. Today Bulgaria is a democratic parliamentary republic, a Member State of the EU and NATO.
Bulgaria is a millennial crossroad of many different cultures - the country has a great number of cultural and historical monuments, revealing the characteristics of every cultural period of the human civilization, including antiquity.
Sofia is the capital of Bulgaria. The city charm is in the cosmopolitan ambience and the various possibilities of entertainment and tourism it offers. Sofia residents and visitors may choose from among more than 3000 restaurants, cafes and bars serving excellent food and a great variety of high-quality wines. The cost of living in Bulgaria is among the lowest in Europe.
Sofia is the country’s major centre of cultural, artistic and night life. The city has a lot to offer in terms of entertainment and recreation, including 31 movie theaters, 23 theaters, 27 museums and numerous art galleries and exhibition halls. Sofia hosts a number of international festivals and welcomes world-famous musicians and artists. A very important advantage for young people living in Sofia is the fact that ticket prices are much lower as compared to those in Central and Western Europe capitals.
