“Tribune”: Bulgaria – the slow evolution from the Ice age
A news article in the collaborative online issues of the British “International Herald Tribune” and the American “New York Times” is dedicated to Bulgaria and it’s slow and difficult “Renaissance” after the end of the communist era.
According to the article, there are lots of noticeable changes in Bulgaria after it shook off the Soviet dominance in 1989. Democratic elections are now a tradition, and the capital Sofia is blooming.
The tourism is also progressing, with destinations like the summer resorts on the Black Sea coast and the winter resorts like “Borovets” being among the favourite tourism spots for many Europeans. The dozens of preserved ancient monasteries and their remarkable murals are also very worthy of a visit. The cultural destinations allow the tourist to see Europea as it was once – before the euro, before the Second World War, before electricity.
Among the ex Soviet satelites, Bulgaria is among the slowest to recover from the communist era. This places the country outside of the list of modern tourism destinations, but there is definitely a lot to see in Bulgaria, states the article.
