Setting Description:
A combination of mountains, pine forests, green plains, rivers and lost lakes would be an accurate summary of Bulgaria. The country where you can still see people ride donkeys on their way to work, but watch satellite TV at home is a great mix of old tradition and 21st century modernity. Enjoy this amazing country with a family that will welcome you warmly!
