Bulgaria is a small country in Eastern Europe with beautiful nature, nice winter and summer resorts, and a history of more than 1300 years. Tourists from all over the world visit the country to enjoy the resorts and tour the historical landmarks. The country joined the European Union recently, which is a significant recognition for Bulgaria's recent economical and social advances.
The city of Plovdiv—where I am from—is one of the oldest cities in Europe. Many remnants of ancient architecture can still be seen throughout the city.
