Essence of Bulgaria

Over the centuries, Bulgaria has been successively influenced by Byzantine, Greek, Russian cultures, and that of Western countries. In the Middle Ages (particularly in the 10th and 11th centuries), Bulgaria was the center of Slavic culture. This was practically destroyed during the centuries of Turkish domination. The revival of Bulgarian literature in the 18th century marked the revival of nationalism.

Wines of Bulgaria
