Really curious way to put the stamps! 

Bulgaria is a country in the Balkans on the western side of the Black Sea. It is surrounded by Romania to the north, Serbia to the northwest, the Republic of Macedonia to the southwest, Greece to the south, and Turkey to the southeast. Being located close to the Turkish Straits means the key land routes from Europe to Middle East and Asia pass through Bulgaria.

With mild autumns, cool winters and warm breezy summers, Bulgaria is one of the few exotic nations of Europe; due to the fact that it boasts sublime beaches, lovely churches, winter sport opportunities, to name a few. Although it is not regularly visited compared to other European nations, it is a beautiful place, with a wide range of activities for a traveller to do.
Bulgaria’s attractions go from stunning beaches and picturesque bays despite the expansive construction work, networks of well-maintained hiking trails and horse-riding routes that allow you to discover Bulgaria’s lush mountainous and forested landscapes inhabited by bears, lynx, rare birds and other kinds of wildlife now becoming scarce elsewhere in Europe
Here you’ll come across multicoloured monasteries, filled with fabulous icons and watched over by bushy-bearded priests, and impossibly pretty timber-framed villages with smoke curling lazily over the stone-tiled roofs and donkeys complaining in the distance, where headscarfed old ladies and their curious grandchildren still stare in wonderment at the arrival of outsiders. 
The cities go from dynamic, cosmopolitan Sofia with its lovely parks, sociable alfresco bars and fascinating museums, to the National Revival architectural treasures and Roman remains of Plovdiv, and the youthful maritime cockiness of Varna.

Blagodarya Silvia!
