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.

Burgas is the fourth largest city in Bulgaria, located on the Black Sea Coast. It is an important industrial, transport and cultural centre with many tourist attractions in the region. Built by the sea and surrounded by lakes, Burgas offers relatively mild weather characterized by cooler summers and warmer winters. There are historical evidences that the lands that today Burgas occupies were inhabited since ancient times. Burgas has its own international airport and is 380 km (236 miles) away from Sofia - the capital of Bulgaria.

Located in Burgas’ Seaside Park, popular among residents and visitors for rest and recreation, Flora Exposition Center was designed to avoid impacting on the garden’s permanent vegetation and to blend in with its natural setting. With room for up to 300 people, a flexible, multi-purpose layout and modern audio-visual facilities, the centre is able to host a variety of events. Flora won Bulgaria’s ‘Building of the year’ award for 2015 in the ‘green architecture’ category.
