This is a collection of pictures from Bulgaria, the result of a trip in 2010 to the beaches and resorts on the Black Sea coast.

If you look up my articles from Bulgaria, you will also find a video, a world heritage site and a regular travelogue. Before you do, start with these pictures from Bulgaria.

Nesebar on Bulgaria's Black Sea coast is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Albena to the north is definitely not. It is an artificial resort town with a beautiful beach.

Fast facts

Learn about the country on Wikipedia. Here is an excerpt:

Bulgaria is a country in Southeast Europe. It occupies the whole eastern part of the Balkans, and borders Romania to the north, Serbia and North Macedonia to the west, Greece and Turkey to the south, and the Black Sea to the east. Bulgaria covers a territory of 110,994 square kilometres, and is the sixteenth-largest country in Europe. Sofia is the country’s capital and largest city; other major cities are Plovdiv, Varna and Burgas.

The ruling Communist Party gave up its monopoly on power after the revolutions of 1989 and allowed multiparty elections. Bulgaria then transitioned into a democracy and a market-based economy. Since adopting a democratic constitution in 1991, Bulgaria has been a unitary parliamentary republic composed of 28 provinces, with a high degree of political, administrative, and economic centralisation.

Bulgaria is a developing country, with an upper-middle-income economy, ranking 56th in the Human Development Index. Its market economy is part of the European Single Market and is largely based on services, followed by industry – especially machine building and mining – and agriculture. Widespread corruption is a major socioeconomic issue; Bulgaria ranked as the most corrupt country in the European Union in 2018. The country also faces a demographic crisis, with its population shrinking annually since around 1990; it currently numbers roughly seven million, down from a peak of nearly nine million in 1988.
