Map of Bulgaria

Bulgaria, officially the Republic of Bulgaria, is a country in southeastern Europe and one of the newest members of the European Union. It borders Romania to the north, Serbia and Macedonia to the west, Greece and Turkey to the south, and the Black Sea to the east. Founded in the 7th century, Bulgaria is one of the oldest states on the continent. Even before its creation, the empires of ancient Rome, Greece, and Byzantium were strong presences, and people and goods traveled the land with frequency.

The population of Bulgaria is 7.3 million, roughly one-sixth of which live in the capital Sofia. The official language is Bulgarian, written in the Cyrillic alphabet. The country is remarkable for its variety of scenery; its rugged mountains and relaxing Black Sea resorts attract many visitors. Bulgaria has a moderate climate with a hot, dry summer and a cold winter. It is one of Europe's most biodiversity rich countries. Almost a third of Bulgaria is forested.

The citizens of European Union, Australia, Canada, Iceland, Israel, Japan, Lichtenstein, Malaysia, Norway, Republic of Korea, Singapore, Switzerland, Taiwan, UAE, USA and the holders of valid Schengen visas do not need a visa to travel to Bulgaria.
