Bulgaria

Bulgaria is a mysterious country in southeastern Europe, known for its long stretch of coastline along the Black Sea. While many tourists enjoy the country's summer and winter resorts, such as Albena, Golden Sands and Pamporovo, the less-travelled areas of Bulgaria offer a wealth of history, art and outdoor adventure. A popular destination is Sofia, the cosmopolitan capital of Bulgaria and home to the famous Hagia Sophia, a 6th-century church and cultural monument that was used as a mosque during the Ottoman rule. The interior of Bulgaria is full of well-maintained trails for hiking and horseback riding through ancient forests and mountains. The country's efficient public transportation system will take you to rural villages and monasteries, many of which date back to the Byzantine era and are filled with paintings and religious icons. Come fly with Austrian Airlines to Bulgaria and get a taste of ancient and modern Europe.

EAT in Bulgaria: Manastirska mager
If you've come to Sofia overland, you might have been a guest in one or the other of the monasteries. Often you can experience arts and culture there, maybe even stay for the night. Yet the food is mostly reserved to the pious permanent residents of the monastery. But don't think luckily so.   In the Manastirska magerniza, the monastery kitchen, you'll eat food cooked according to monastic recipes. Not only from the area of Sofia, but all over Bulgaria. The cuisine is simple but made from fresh ingredients and authentic. The hungry pilgrim is welcomed with bread and salt, thereby experiencing the traditional Bulgarian welcome greeting.   If you come as a couple, you can try a telling wedding rite: Break the bread in two. The one who gets the bigger piece, wears the breeches in the relationship.

SHOP in Bulgaria: Vitosha Boulevard
The Vitosha Boulevard is Sofia's ritziest avenue, and comes in 32nd worldwide when it comes to the most expensive shopping streets. It's still worth a stroll - after all, you don't need to buy everything you see. That would be quite expensive, indeed, because the brand portfolio of the posh street is no different from the Parisian Champs-Élysées or the Via Montenapoleone in Milan. Versace, Bulgari, D&G, Escada, Max Mara, Van Laak, Ermenegildo Zegna, Moreschi, Marella, Armani, Ferré, Boss, Baldinini and, of course, also the slightly more modest colleagues such as Sisley, Bennetton, Hilfiger, Lacoste, Pepe und Levi's.   Once you've had enough of this glamour world, check out the side streets. You will find many nice boutiques with an ample choice.

STAY in Bulgaria: Grand Hotel Sofia
There is none more classic. More luxurious neither. The Grand Hotel is one of the most renowned hotels in Sofia, and at a prime location: Just go outside for a bit. You are near the National Theatre, the City Art Gallery, the Alexander Nevsky Cathedral and the great Concert Hall.   The VIPs who go here do this less because of the location but because of the stars. The Grand Hotel is graced by five of them, and each one of them stands for pure luxury. The façade is imposing with its marble, granite and glass. Inside you have sumptuous curtains, classy and old-fashioned upholstery and colourful glass doors. Thus it's no surprise that the Grand Hotel also features a museum: The in-house collection has over 400 oil paintings. Originals, of course. Doubles start at 79,- euros a night.

SEE in Bulgaria: Banja Baschi
The Banja Baschi Mosque is an impressive monument to the Ottoman Era, one of the very few in Sofia. It was built in the 16th century under the Turkish master builder Hadshi Mimar Sinan, who was also responsible for the Blue Mosque in Istanbul. The mosque has two floors - the upper one is reserved for female visitors. The mosque is the only active one in Sofia: Every day the muezzin calls to the believers from the 15-metre high minaret. Visitors are welcome outside of prayer times.   The neighbouring baths are also worth a visit. They were built in 1908 and harbour a big pool. Behind two separate entryways for men and women there are several small mineral pools.
