I don't really know much about Bulgaria.

I only know that the Bulgarian language doesn't have as many grammatical cases as other Slavic languages, but there's a lot of verbs in the language.

The bold guy says "No I don't like Kirkorov (Bolgarian/Russian pop singer) because he uses makeup and acts "too sugary" and looks like a woman, and called him a "Romanian" (to mock him, and also as a sarcasm), but the dumb chick was trying to correct the bold guy saying that, the singer is a Bolgarian and not a Romanian and then the bold guy says "Really?! Does it matter?!" (meaning, that there is no difference).

I was born and raised in Bulgaria. I think I've spent around 20 years living there. However if I have to be honest, even I don't know that much about Bulgaria, there are so many places that I haven't visited, so many cultural things I don't know much about, etc.

Like any other country there are good and bad things but in this case I'll avoid going in detail. A lot of Eastern European countries including Bulgaria have some similar problems and it seems that these problems are not going away any time soon.

Bulgaria is my neighbor country, never been there, they have hot beaches and for some reason they hate romanians and they nod their head sideways when saying yes and when they say no, they nod it like the rest of the world who wanna say yes. There's something wrong with them.

The only thing I know about Bulgaria is that it's a country with a slavic language, it's neighbor with my country, it have access to the Black Sea, and it's Nina Dobrev's native country.

I love Nina Dobrev btw.

I have a classmate who lived in Canada for 13 years and she said that it is hard for her to decide where she feels better(or which she likes better). I am sure that Canada is amazing, though :)

Bulgaria is our neighbor so I know quite a bit about it and it's history. We have a lot of shared history. Many wars and alliances.
Bulgaria and Bulgarians are really similar to Serbia and Serbians. Same religion, similar history (being under Turk ocuppation), similar customs and tradition, similar languages, Cyrillic alphabet, smiliar/same problems, and from what I can tell we have similar mentality as well.

I haven't been to Bulgaria yet, but I sure plan to go soon. I also know few Bulgarians, really cool guys. We talk to each other in our own languages and mange to understand each other really well.

Поздрав из Србије.

That's not a Bulgarian language. It is Russian, I think.

Never been to another country, at least yet.

Some of things I know about Bulgaria is its language is one of the closest to Old Church Slavonic, the liturgical language of the Eastern Orthodox Church.

Their female choir is well-known. The director of the Ghost In The Shell (1995) was supposed to use them for the movie, but he couldn't find any choir during the time. Still, it's hauntingly beautiful.



And Baba Vida :P

Bulgaria is a bad country, a population is falling, and the birth rate is dipping. Bulgaria is nearing extinction because of it.

True, true, but this is not the worst of it. It is good place to visit and bad place to live in. And for some reason for many people - a difficult place to leave.

i've been to varna(a city in bulgaria ofc) before and its beautiful there. ive heard in summer lots of people visit there so yea. there r lots of homeless dogs and cats in the streets and they're super friendly. if they have those tags on their ears it means they're vaccinated by the government(since there r so many of them) i do believe the religion there is christianity?

honestly the language looks kinda like russian to me but yea its a nice place people go visit!!!
have a great day everyone

Bulgaria already went through the collapse that Germany still has in front of it.
They were hit hard after their axis allies lost. The communists dried the country out just as the turks did before them. Many christians fled the country to reach Germany, away from the iron curtain.

The last thing you could sell to a Bulgarian is another revolution "for the people".

Today it's one of the EU's popular southern retirement places for old people that can't afford rent in their own country. The beaches mostly.

Villas over there sit adjacent to the poorest districts. Was reminiscent to how Berlin is structured. Ugly and full of turks.

I actually study Medicine in Bulgaria, and I've been here for an year now.

Having been born and brought up as a TCK in Dubai, I got really accustomed to the easy and loud city life.

Bulgaria is a beautiful country with great weather, but their lack of interest in learning English has really made their skill in the language poor. Only a handful of locals out in the street actually are comfy speaking English, and you are just expected to know BG :/

I love the general silence and peace that is in plenty where I live. If you think about visiting, go on ahead.... Just don't expect everybody to be comfy with ENG

I have only been there for vacation as a kid. All I remember is that it was very warm there on the beaches, but there were also a lot of beggars and other poor people, which was kinda saddening.
