Found in 681, Bulgaria is one of the oldest European countries. But even with its 13-century tradition in fact it is a mere “baby” comparing with the history of the civilization in nowadays Bulgarian lands. Bulgaria ranks third in cultural and historical heritage in Europe. It is only Italy and Greece that are in front of us in number and variety of cultural and historical monuments.
