Hristo Yanev was selected by the seminar team at the World Travel Market 2013 in London (4-7 November 2013) to give a 10 minute lecture-speech on the topic „Bulgaria as a destination“ to tens of thousands of exhibitors and visitors of the second largest tourist exhibition in the world. This is a huge honor and respect, which he and the managed tour operator are taking and are going to do the best possible to take this excellent opportunity. The date and time are specified by the seminar team. Hristo Yanev will take the floor on 6 November (Wednesday) at 14:00 local time.
It is interesting to note that never before was there a Bulgarian speaker with the exception of the ministers of the various governments that had held press conferences only to a narrow circle of journalists. This is unprecedented for Bulgaria. Let us wish success and good performance of our country in front of one of the most numerous professional audiences in the world. Има още
Travelers can experience rural Bulgaria’s charming traditions in style, thanks to a new breed of ethical farmstays and a hip lodge, writes Kapka Kassabova.
„Who shot that?“ I point at the wolf skin on the wall while we wash down an organic beef stew with Shumensko beer.
„Mitko,“ says his grandmother.
Mitko is 14 and lives here at Wild Farm, where his scientist parents have swapped their city jobs for a radical farming lifestyle. They inherited the house and bought a few head of cattle. Ten years on, they have 500 cows and 10 woolly dogs of a famed regional breed called, like the nomadic shepherds who lived here, Karakachan. The dogs are big, and they need to be – because there is a large wolf population here in Bulgaria’s eastern Rhodopes, a mountain region with the highest biodiversity in Europe. Има още
Climate is often at the top of the list when people decide to immigrate to another country. Those from Britain’s colder northern climes pour over temperature charts to seek out the warmth of the sun, but Bulgaria’s reported temperatures are not that reliable as weather is very localised – it can pour with rain in one village yet 12 km away there can be burning sun.
The beauty of Bulgaria is that it offers four distinct seasons, which offer relief from the intense 30-degree temperatures of the summer months. However, it is only when people come to live in this climate, do they realise Bulgaria is not blessed with year-round summer temperatures. Има още

It may not have the best tourism infrastructure, but Bulgaria, „the oldest state in Europe,“ has long been on my list of places to visit, not just because I’m a fan of Bulgaria’s vocal music but also because of the wealth of attractions. I’d check out the Russian churches in Sofia, visit the Rila Monastery (a UNESCO site) and snack on a doughnut from the nearby monk-run bakery, then sniff out the floral-scented air of the rose farms in the Valley of the Kings, which are said to produce
some of the best quality attar. If I went early in the year, I might see a kuker dance and other traditional spring festivities that take place in towns and villages across Bulgaria.
